    I’ve got a similar slow weep even after sealing mine up per the factory manual when I did my head gasket a few months back. Hard to tell from your pic but yours might be coming from up above where the timing cover meets the block too0FE4011E-91E5-4D22-BF7B-8CD78C22ADAB.jpg

    Howdy fellas:hattip:

    I’ve got an update for yall.. these are going on tomorrow morning. Should be a better match for the 5.29s than my 33s are currently. For anyone curious I threw these on the scale and they weighed 64.4 lbs. that is slightly less than advertised by nitto

    those 5.29 will make your truck a real stump puller!

    I got my clutch done yesterday. Also put a short throw shifter in, it’s like a whole new truck now.

    That short throw makes a huge difference!

    Excellent! I got a drain from the boost lab on order and I’m working on more of the oil lines and fittings reqd this weekend. Won’t be long now!
    The 5.29s do help a lot on the low end. They also make driving on the hwy much more pleasant. Don’t have to do the 4-5 5-4 dance anymore. Which clutch and shifter did you go with? Short shifters do make a big difference on these trucks. Stock is like rowing a boat

    Put the truck on a diet today. Ditched the camper, roof basket, and platform in the back. Probably somewhere around 250lbs total along with some tools and spare parts from trips.

    Yes indeed, it was becoming a heavy pig so it feels like it gets up to speed a little easier now

    I went with the LCE Pro clutch and a their heavy flywheel. So far I’m very happy with that setup. I towed my boat today and for once my truck really pulled well. I also lightened up my tires going with Toyo AT3 235/85 R16 tires, I think that helped a lot.

    Awesome, looks like a nice setup! I am running their lightweight flywheel and i really like it. Does the heavy version help a lot when taking off while towing? that's my only complaint with the lightweight one. Takes a little more throttle input to get going without stalling it out. I bet the lighter tires did help some. I went with a lighter but taller tire this time around, and i was expecting it to be more sluggish, but it feels about the same

    Towing, I barely have to give gas to get into 1st gear. Just as long as I don’t dump the clutch. I do use the e brake when pulling my boat out the launch so I do feather the gas as I let up the ebrake.
