    It was pretty easy to put on, had to lift the motor a little to get it in there but no big deal. The upper intake that came with mine wouldn't fit the factory lower intake, the setup I bought came with everything including the newer style lower I turned the pump up, hooked up the oil pressure and renturn (welded a fitting in the oil pan) and installed a Heath diesel mechanical waste gate I'm pushin 10 lbs and it easily double my power, no longer thinkin of a motor swap. Make sure you put the crank case vent BEFORE the turbo, I put it after and pressurized the crankcase and spit out the oil pan gasket and rear main.
    If you need help I'd gladly guide you through it, but all in all its a pretty easy job.

    At first it smoked ALOT because I cranked the crap out of the pump, but now that I'm runnin more boost it dosn't smoke too bad.

    Nice truck. I dig the exo. I'll vote for ya if I still have time to send in my votes... I have been lazy. Honestly, I wasn't going to vote for your truck originally, but now that ive seen more pics, I like it. Thats what sux; there arn't enough pics/specs in the mags to make a good decision. You're gonna have to do something about that air intake though if you get voted in.
