UPDATE:

i finally got the new MAP flange welded.
When I run a boost leak test on the intercooler piping i do not have any pressure drop. Once i run the boost test with pipes connected to the intake manifold the pressure drops.
Is that due to an open exhaust valve?

i just recorded 2 log, I am still getting overboost

Careful with that much overboost at that high of RPM, turbo is spinning very fast. Can cut fueling a bunch if you'd like but that can only do so much.

Got some updates

i havnt touched the overboost issue since but i have started taking the runner apart.

i am going to redo the whole front suspension in order to lower the Runner.
With the leaf springs i can not lower it because the pitman arm will hit the leaf spring. So i will be reusing the factor fj80 Land Cruiser suspension.

parts that i have so far:
fj80 land cruiser axle with factory locker
ballistic fab adjustable coil bucker
radius arms / panhard bar / sway bar
frame stiffener plates
coils

ive started taring apart the leaf suspension this weekend
i got the frame all cleaned up, its fready for the frame reinforcment to be welded on

What's the difference in track width with the FJ80 axle? Do you have plans for a matching rear FJ80 axle?

The fj80 will be 2.3" wider than what i have right now (mini axle w/ IFS hubs and 1.25" spacers). I was thinking about matching the rear but not anytime soon. The rear axle is offset by 3.5" to the passenger side right where my gas tank is. I would have to modify the tank to clear the driveshaft

I'll be watching to see how this goes, as I might to have to consider something similar. I installed cross-over steering on my 4R and because I don't have much lift on mine I had to make my own, nearly flat, pitman arm and I have concerns that the linkage is going to contact the pan significantly.

KBCB, did you push your engine and axle forward by any chance?

I got the reinforcement plates all burned in.

Finally got the axle under the truck for mock up, so far its looking good.

That axle looks beastly under there, but what's really catching my eye is those jackstands. They are pretty hardcore looking!

No, I had considered moving it forward but decided against it. Don't remember why.

I'm curious, why did you decide to go with an 80 axle, instead of adding coils to the axle that you already had?

Inquiring minds...

There are a few reasons why i chose the 80.
The mini axle isnt wide enough for coils springs, i could have used coil-overs but thats out of my budget
I wanted to retain the factory arms and suspension to keep the cost down
The 80 is wider, so i wouldnt need to run any spacers and ifs hubs ( more stress on trunion bearings)
the birfields are bigger and stronger... nothing compared to longfields, but those are also $$

Last but not least, a high pinion 3rd w/ ELOCKER
