Ahh OK. Will be interesting to see what kind of highway mpg you get in something like that. I've got a supercab (which isn't as big as your 4 door) ranger, 4x4, w/ 31's and a 4.10 rear. I'm interested to see how a 4x4 truck that's probably as heavy, or heavier, than mine does on the mpg on the highway.

So it's almost finished, I cant seem to find a wire diagram for the dodge cluster so I'm trying to find the tach wire. But here's a vid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIeRcTpBDNo

so today i pulled the injectors a found out there stock DSLA 150P 442, so with those and the gt1749 and limp mode as far as Ive driven it its not to bad a little weak to get going from a stop other than that it has decent power, but i cant wait till it gets the new ecu, tune and new injectors.

Are you running the stock Dakota transfer case? NV3550? That's a manual? What did you do to adapt it to the ALH? Frans was talking about some tdi adapters but didn't think he was there yet. I'm still not gonna rule out a TDI in my F150 especially if yours works out. My truck is only 1000 lbs heavier so a BHW or an inline 5 cylinder tdi might work. Looks like a 1z for your swap, huh?

lets see i have pics and listed everything, but yes im using the stock dakota transfer case, yes its a 5 speed manual a nv3550, used the coty hpa jeep adapter and i used a 1z not an alh, I probably the only one that likes the 1z and ahu better. at the moment its like driving my old chevy s10 with the 2.2l lol, but soon I'll receive the new ecu, injectors, and then get a tune, and it should be sweet.
