I can't believe the amount of craftsmanship, metal fab, and detail you've put into this. It turned out so good! I can't think of anything I'd do differently. You really blew my mind with the EFI setup and plumbing/wiring.

Thanks for posting all of the journey so far, you should post another video of it running now. I don't think the old link is working anymore.


Thanks, man. I can't believe I bought this pile of junk 11 years ago and have this cool truck now. I'll have to do some more thread updates when I get a chance

It's been awhile since I gave an update. The fuel injection is working great! Just working on the tuning a little at a time. Here's the truck at it's first show in a long time since I've finally recovered from my injury.

One thing I really didn't want was a huge muffler, or anything sticking out behind the bumper. If possible, I also didn't want to move anything to get at my valve covers, so I made my own setup.

This is a small flange to a 2" pipe leading to a 2.5" Moroso Spiral Flow muffler. Both ends were cut off and tapered down to 2", since they only come in 2.5" and 3" sizes. I couldn't find anyone running this an an ACVW, so I decided to try it out. At only 4" diameter and no packing to blow out with interesting internal design, it was worth a shot for $65 at Summit.

I would describe it as sounding like a slightly throatier sounding quiet pack and only slightly louder. It's really hard to tell a volume difference over road noise, but that might be because the cab is so far separated from the engine bay in a truck. Zero drone at all compared to the quiet pack and sounds nothing like a rice rocket coffee can exhaust. Once I added a 1 3/4" tailpipe, it stopped looking like one too. Super happy with it. It really just sounds like a slightly less raspy quiet pack. If you like the sound of a quiet pack, this is a great option.

I fixed some minor issues with my rear bumper and hidden tow hitch and mounted it, just in case my muffler install interferes. Good thing too, because there is an obvious fit issue with where I thought I might hang it.

The 6 month wait is over. Cool

Hopefully, now I can tune out a transition flat spot that re jetting won't fix.

Yes! Drive your bus. Use it like it was meant to be used. My lady asks if it bothers me getting a few scuffs and scrapes in the bed paint. Hell no it doesn't! Funny that more people really comment and ask questions when I'm hauling stuff.

It's a lot more fun behind the wheel than on a creeper underneath it, huh?

Thanks, what's holding me back ATM is I'm waiting on an A1 sidewinder header still so I can finish tuning. Before I switch to EFI and mount the rear bumper I really need it in place. I'll be doing something custom for a muffler once I have everything, but I have been driving it. Moved a heavy ass pool table the other day and the whole family was impressed at how well it fit with the flat bed and easy to remove from the side of the bed!

Oh yeah, my engine combo has tons of torque I'm stoked. Took 3000 lbs of scrap steel to get cashed in. Truck hit the scale with a full tank at 2500 even. With me and the load it was 5750. Very Happy I thought the scale needed to be reset and it wasn't my single, the guy looked at me and said "can they ALL do that???". I really could not tell it was so much weight until I was braking, but with the Porsche discs it was no sweat. I also fit all 3 pieces of a big sectional couch no problem. I literally get out of this thing when I pull into the garage with a smile on my face in love. It's so awesome that I get to use it exactly how I built it, to be a bad ass little hauler.

At In n Out Burger a while back. A guy named Stephen working the drive through was loving it. Turns out this young buck had an early bug. Cool

I wanted to but I got a little paranoid about them catching on fire with the hair seat pads. Laughing

I didn't want to be the guy to do the experiment, because I've only seen the heaters used with foam

Love your build, and wondering about one thing. Did you install those seatwarmers? Very Happy

Awesome build!

Glad to see you building it up to be used as a truck, like it was made for!

Very clean install of EFI!


is that a purple serpentine setup you have? do you remember where you got it? i need one!


Lol! Many people have been asking about my "purple" pulleys! They used to be black and have very rapidly started fading in the last year or two. Most of my engine work was done at night and/or fluorescent lights and my color blindness did not pick up on it...... Wink it's a older kit from BMD

Tomorrow I button up the last of my mechanical upgrades and get to drive it for the first time with 2.0 power. Cool

After a season of shakedowns, I'll finish the EFI swap, but for now it's been 2 years since my 40hp crank broke and I can't wait anymore!

Like they say, "when one door closes, another opens". Thank you broken crank for the opportunity to make my truck a more enjoyable driver.

Here's the second time I had the engine running. Oil has been changed but there's still a bunch of little things to do before driving. I need to check the valves again now that the cam and lifters have settled in. Timing is set pretty conservative ATM and running 91 octane. Carbs look to be in sync at 5.5 or soo on the snail gauge and I haven't set idle speed or mixtures. I'm pretty happy considering...... Without the turbo, I can hear the steel pushrods and straight cut cam gears a lot more. I think it sounds pretty good for a single quiet pack. I can't wait to switch it to EFI but it does pretty well with the MSD distributor with grey springs. It's idling at about 5 degrees and advances to about 28 at higher RPM. Timing is rock steady and is light years of an upgrade over the 009 that was in the 40 horse.

Thanks for the support guys, I've been pretty motivated- everything done on this page has been on two crutches except for lifting the engine.
