I like it a lot. Runs great

I really want to add the TRD supercharger to wake it up. Could use the extra HP

Shoot, I almost bought it but I decided that I had too many other important things to fix first. Need to redo the front exhaust section and install the header. Then it'll be on

Dunno if anybody else has tried the KYB Monomax HD shocks, but I found the front shock to be shorter than the stock shock. It leaves a small gap under the top bracket, that could cause noise. I'm sending them back, and I just ordered a set of Bilstein HD 4600 series from 4 wheel parts who has them on sale for the same price shipped as the Monomax  :disturbed:

Bilsteins 4600 series fitment is spot on compared to the Monomax shocks. I really like how they also come with the bellows already installed perfectly for you and they are assembled in the USA.  :clap2:

 The Bilstein ride quality is... :rockingout:

Thought I would give ya'll an update on the truck. It has been dead reliable since I completed the swap up until a few days ago when all of the sudden it just wouldn't start. I basically troubleshot/tested electrical such as power to the ecu, injectors, fuel pump etc which all checked out ok. I then checked compression and it's got low numbers primarily #1 and #2 is kinda low. Also did a leak down on #1

I'm thinking the head gasket deteriorated between the cylinders allowing compression to escape between each cylinder. I've yet to pull the head off, but I will and let ya'll know how it look's.
