Not many will have the balls to say, I appreciate the level of detail that you have done. Please don't install any side pipes with built in steps.

Water in fuel I don’t know might have just been overlooked on things needing turned off.

ABS I’ve been chasing wires with the service manual to make sure when I gutted the harnesses I didn’t switch a wire in a plug somewhere. Could also be from me welding a truss on the rear axle. Heat may have messed with the sensor. Though I do still have a speedo.

The map sensor also show 5psi of boost just sitting not running. Swapped sensors from a known good truck and the same. So not sure of that either.

Just a bunch of pain in the behind gremlins to chase down.

I appreciate that. I try to do the best I can with what I have and know, which isnít too much. Itís not perfect but ten times better than the hack that did some of the work before me.

And I canít stand steps of any kind so there wonít ever be ha

Looks nice and clean. I can dig the detail you have done and approve.

Speedo will work off abs and/or trans output sensor. Just a though but the ABS module needs the VIN to be programed and matched to the ECM. The ECM you are running now may have a VIN mismatch and be causing your ABS. You did not post any ABS codes but your comment on changing ECM made me think of this. All the modules on these truck look for VIN to match for communication.


On the boost senor. You should be at 1 atmosphere or 14.7 psi give a few tenths with the engine idling. Check the 5V reference to the sensor. On the older trucks.... 06 to give an example. The 5V reference from the ECM is for MAP, Air Temp, Crank and Cam senor, and rail pressure. Make sure all the other sensors are good. You can also check the return voltage from the map sensor. Last but not least is to check your grounds. I have found many weird ground issues with these trucks over the years. I have fixed a few by going straight to ground and bypassing the ECM when needed.



BTW..... Nice clean build. Love the effort you have put in. It is all about the details!

Why studs for the injector hold-downs? I think that's the first I've seen it done.

To prevent a snapped hold down bolt I'm assuming which is a complete pita!

Had one snap on me on #5 and it wasn't even to torque yet and had my buddy weld a nut on and done! Time well wasted!

What he said^^^

I’ve broken a few rocker hold down bolts before. Ive had the stock bolts stretch easy and snap outta no where.

It's some stupid torque like 40in lbs or lower, can't remember exactly. Let's just say they're about as fragile as the injector studs in my opinion.

Thanks!

Iíll have to play around with the vin stuff. Itís very possible the previous owner could have had things from multiple trucks and somehow not have the same vin as the cab or something crazy.

I tested the supplies and grounds for the ecm when I was having problems with getting the 5.9 ecm to work and all were good. Even added grounds like you mentioned. I also bought a whole front clip harnesses and swapped all three and nothing changed. If I canít get it figured out Iím trying to get to firepunk in the fall to have them put it on the dyno and fine tune and Iíll have to ask them to take a look while Iím there. The lights arenít too much a bother as long as it isnít hurting anything.

Interesting. What length do they have to be?

I think my problem was I was using a bigger torque wrench where the torque for them was on the lower end for that wrench and it wasnít enough to get it to click properly. Ever since I use a smaller one and itís been good. Still a cheap insurance with the studs though

I’m not sure the exact length for the injectors studs but the only ones I’ve seen are advertised for 5.9 injectors. Which I have in it.

Sorry, I was referring to the solenoid studs.
