I plan on it.

All lean condition related

Trucks running terribly. Tearing into the intake to fix the leak on Saturday
Intake gaskets, fuel filter, plugs, pcv valve, clean maf, throttle body, pull coils and clean.
Any other suggestions?
Seems like a pretty solid plan, my only other suggestion is to check for exhaust leaks especially near your o2 sensors. Dump in some seafoam into the gastank too

What does the EGR delete do for these trucks? I have only really seen it done on 6.0s and 6.4s

It sounds a bit tamer, from last year. Cam is a bit smaller. Ir was a cheap off the shielf cam. Going to run it with that cam for a few months. And then bump up to a roller cam.

This year its got alot more compression,alot better heads with porting,,all new fuel system,Domintor 1050cfm carb.... Should be a nice piece. (I hope so,lol)

I'm going to try to get some video of it this weekend.




Here is the engine last year. Has a decent solid cam..small dome pistions and some crappy heads.

Robs 468 BBC - YouTube
Is that a 289 ? JK
I like pretty much all the SBC's and some BBC just not the 454's.
Loved the old 396's much more. Can't ever go wrong with the ole 5.7L

Honestly, not much. They just help flow a bit. And the tube is prone to cracking out

And the fact it keeps the intake manifold cleaner without exhaust gasses and stuff going back into it. Same sort of idea with a pcv catch can.
