That’s great, congrats on getting it moving. How does it drive and when do we get to see some blues brothers jumps?!
Go for it, you can still find nice-ish ones for 3-5k around me. Nice is a relative term, haha. The majority are ratty ones for 500-2500. This one needs some surface rust repair and paint touch ups, nothing crazy. The interior was in really good shape which is what sold me on it.This is such a great build. Kinda wished I had picked up a Cvpi for a daily
Man, that is all kinds of awesome.
I'm glad you asked...I took it out initially to shake it down and it was a DOG. I know the stock truck tunes suck balls with no ignition timing and no PE, especially the Express file, but this was just boring. So once I verified no fluids were gushing out of it I hooked up the VCM Scanner and logged a couple highway pulls...The thing was running anywhere between 8-12 degrees timing at WOT, shifts were set at 5200, no PE so it was super lean, etc.That’s great, congrats on getting it moving.

Well thanks man. I actually didn't even get to work on it as much as I liked, but raising a 4 month old seriously bites into spare time.I’m just here to say that you sloppy guys move mountains on these builds. From September to now and it’s swapped and driving down the road. It would’ve taken me two months to thin the fucking harness to get it to crank.
Threw in a new wideband sensor - it's reading again. Looks like I had a dud out of the AEM box. There were no markings on the sensor body itself, perhaps a knockoff. Shame. Off to VE land!Got the pig idling decently, but fighting some issues with the AEM wideband. I played with the VE table to get it started, and it was running so rich that it was struggling to idle and was choking black smoke out the back. The whole time the wideband is reading dead lean ( - - - ). I cut the VE table 70% and it idled far better, and the black smoke is gone - obviously it was too rich. However, wideband still reads lean. Any thoughts?
