Update: I've put almost 2500 miles on the truck since getting it back without a single hiccup. I had been running some biodiesel so changed out the fuel filter about 500 miles ago, but that's it.
Yes LOVE the truck still and I never get tired of hearing the sound of that diesel puur!
My only complaint as stated before is running hotter EGT'S than I would like to see on the highway. The boost is also slow to come in, and when it does it pegs out at 12psi. I really only notice the "lack" of power when towing, still has plenty of grunt but then my EGT's go wild so have to back off the skinny pedal.
I am going to remedy this with a new custom built turbo by Graeme in Australia. It should deliver up to 25psi but will limit it to around 15-20 for every day driving and towing. The boost will come in immediately which should eleviate both my EGT issue, and my lust for more POWER!
Stay tuned ....
