Afternoon ladies

Afternoon,
My name is Milo or ThePartyBarge on Instagram.
Been around and working on diesels my whole life, got my first 12 valve a year and a half ago. Did all the free mods then replaced the android springs, hx40 from amazon, 4” down pipe to 5” and a pair of stacks, timing at 17, bhaf and obviously gauges. Truck is apart now because surprise the stock head gasket gave up the ghost. O-ringing the block with the iskendarien tool, ARP’s and 5x.012 injectors going in this round.
I tend to push the envelope on what “should” be done, head gasket was LONG overdue as I ran 17• timing and 42 psi for months before it finally lifted the head under boost.

Truck is a 97 2wd extended cab long bed 5 speed, spent its life before I got it as a local John deer dealership delivery truck. She’s an ugly girl but works well.

If you think 17* is pushing it... You're in for a ride.

On another note I’m impressed people still think 17* is a lot...

I’m offended he/she assumed there wasn’t at least one man round here.

I’m not pee pump savvy but 17* ain’t much even in my lonely VE world...

I’d wager autocorrect got him on “aneroid”.

I’ll give him points simply because he doesn’t have his mirrors flipped. We can talk about the front A/T tires on a RWD and the bent-up 8’ whip later.....

Flipped up tow mirrors are the vehicle equivalent of a mullet.
