Alright, so while I had the intercooler out to fix the leak I decided to change the angle on it as well. Just to give me some more room to get my hands in between the intake and the turbo.

All welded up!

So now we fast forward through the first driving season. the truck first moved under it's own power Christmas 2017 and I drove it till the spring 2018. There were a bunch of hiccups along the way (which was to be expected) and now we pick up the story with a list of things to modify over the summer of 2018.

First up is the exhaust tips. Apparently I lost one over the winter. They were only the clamp on type and the little diesel must have shook it right off.

I wasn't really liking the dual tips anyway. Time to try a more Duramax style of tip.

It's almost round, but who's going to get down there and check anyway, right.

Much better!
