Busted arse Thursday and Friday night to get the truck finished, all sensors hooked up and seems half the new ones aren't reading either anything or right, working with Altronics on that, can't get the live connection to my laptop to work with their software. Really wish they would let me work on their code.

Got it running friday night and seemed to run good, finished up a few things Friday night and got it loaded. Couldn't use the passenger engine cover because of the flange adapter... that has caused way too many issues. Had to space the fender out about an inch to clear the turbo with washers to bolt it on.

Left the truck at 20 degrees timing, just didn't have time to mess with changing it.

Lined up and started spooling the truck, evidently we bumped the shifter while putting it back together and even though it looked like it was in 4x4 hi, it was in 2wd. Had it spooled to about 20psi when boom.

Thinking I ruptured the water to air intercooler, but really just not sure what broke. When I tried to restart it, was getting greyish smoke like there was water in it. So parked the truck and used my daughter's stock truck for my 2 other runs. Managed to get 4th place out of 7 trucks with it in Class 3. Not too bad for a 17" vacuum pulling 327 in a non vacuum class.

It's a frozen boost intercooler that I had a safety blanket made for it at Strouds in OKC, been using this intercooler for around 6 years now. Normally see 60+ psi with it.

Did a little checking on the truck. Pulled the pipe from the intercooler to the intake and there was moisture inside it, then ran the water pumps for a little while after scoping the bottom of the intercooler to see that it was dry on the inside. After running a bit, was seeing water starting to gather on the bottom, so I'm assuming since water can get into the air side, that air can get into the water side....

Started the truck right up after it sat for a few days.

Guess I need to see if I can find another intercooler.

I have one similar to one you have and one similar to the 55. Pretty sure the one I have similar to the 55 is the a 53.

I have plans for them, but, if you need to use one to get you racing, let me know.

A shop that's helping me some is talking to a couple of potential sponsors to see if they can help out on the intercooler and a couple of other parts for the new engine. The next race for me is July 15th that we planned to attend. Hoping to know something in the next week from them or I may just order one after I get back.

I'm heading out of town for a week next Tuesday to take my wife on a driving / camping anniversary adventure. In This Moment Concert in OKC, Pikes Peak in Colorado, Bryce Canyon in UT and the Grand Canyon in Az...
