Fabricated the charge air pipe on the driver side. Got a CSF metal tank intercooler for what I thought was a good price. Bought AC lines and cut/spliced the dodge compressor hose to the Ford hoses. Sectioned out the dodge cooler lines to repurpose them as the resevoir to water pump inlet tubing. I thought I took a picture of the one under the manifold but I don't have it Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

Looking great, Kyle!
I’ve used a number of CSF intercoolers on 7.3’s and 6.0’s. Really like them.
What are the quick connect fittings on top of the oil filter base for?

I used them to check pressure at the base. I had a screw up and ran the engine with the crank-case ventilation sealed. Oil started to discharge from the turbo as a result.
I heard the hiss from the crank-case before the turbo started discharging oil, so I opened the oil fill cap to vent the engine. After that, the turbo passing oil didn't seem to stop passing. I talk to Zach about it, made all the routine checks (oil supply, oil return), then pulled the turbo and sent it to him. Turbo checked out OK.
I think I just got ahead of myself on the whole thing.

10-4. Thought it might be for that, or to prelube it.

I honestly didn't weed through all 11 pages Kyle, but are you doing the harness yourself? If so what sources are you using?

I stripped an OEM 6.7 harness, bought a roll of 7 or 9 color bulk TXL wire from eBay.
I reused most of my sensor connectors, and replaced some with the pre-made OEM cummins harness repair ends.
Wirecare.com and partsexpress.com have looming products and heat shrink.
Mouser electronics is an interesting place.

Finally got my modified coolant tubes bolted on in their forever home. Added a tab to attach to a bell housing bolt. Still plenty of firewall clearance. Got the krookerd hose for the coolant reservoir. It's not going to play well with the. Intake horn. I got the majority of the cam lock connector populated. I had the bracket for the shifter lasered and then bent locally. Still sorting out the digital gear position indicator.

With that being said, does anyone have a writeup on converting the 47re to a 48re comb and range sensor?

I've got to get the transmission range sensor sorted out. The Ford pcm is proving to be cantankerous about the input.

If anyone has converted a 47 to a 48 comb and sensor I need info. Or a thread link?

I haven't crossed that bridge yet. The plan is to use a micro controller to buffer the Cummins crank position sensor. I have outputs for the cam and crank built into the engine harness.

And thank you. I keep seeing things I would change but right now the #1 and #2 goal are make it run and forever.

to run the 48 comb i dont see why you cant just drop the vb and swap it on to the 47 as they use the same vb and ive seen lavon from firepunk talk on fb about putting the 48 range sensor in the 47 cases, it takes some drilling if i remember correctly a few guys have some jigs for drilling them straight then i guess they press the steel plate in for the mounting screws. im actually putting my vb back in my fummins today

Tech Flex F6 loom. This is the first time I've touched it. For now, it looks amazing. I'm also going to switch to shielded wire for the fan control.
