Will it start?! C'mon try and start please.

Can this be, it's on the ground with wheels! Thanks for everyone's help so far. Next exhaust and tuning for cruise.

Once custom exhaust gets built/installed probably in a week or two then tuning will begin. Super excited for sure

Exhaust done and wrapped; o2 & wideband sensors installed. Issues now I have is high idle (possible vac leak), battery not being charged by alt (maybe bad grounding), leak at drain plug of radiator. Most are easy fixes so should be on the road soon...more to come.

Looks awesome! Did you make that black valve cover center piece? That's pretty cool looking.

The center cover was bought on Ebay, I needed a way to route the wires to coil without getting longer ones haha. Also I fixed my charging issue, it was a bad ground.
Seems like the jay racing bracket was not grounding the alt very well so I added a ground strap to the alt body and now getting 14v.
Now onto tuning idle and cruise.

OH YES! I've actually heard of that happening before! I wish I had thought of that! Ah well. I'm glad to hear it's fixed! I think you are going to like this truck once the tuning is done. Mine was absolutely hysterical to drive.

Every time I see how nicely done this build is, it makes me really want a 4G63 again. I wish I could buy the engine and trans back from my old truck for a reasonable price. I wonder where it is now....

You should bring the Wastegate dump out the fender behind the tire. Throw some flames at traffic!

I ran an open wastegate dump on my truck for a short time for fun, and it got obnoxious pretty quickly. lol. For a race car, I would totally do it. For a street car, it made me realize I had made a horrible life decision.

HAHA I like the flame idea.
Cruzin' in my 7 8... Hittin' the boost!
Around the block. So far no over heating issues after new bigger rad install. Need to do a cruise tune once it's registered and insured. Can't wait to take on the streets.
Car show pics coming up this week.

Here is a vid of me cruzin!
