    So it's been just about 2 years since I've touched the truck. I let it sit after I posted this video and went back a few months later cuz the battery died so I bought a new one. Threw it in and the truck had no power whatsoever. So im thinking the wiring to the battery may be bad. Fast forward to today I finally ordered new wire to get the truck back up and running. Hopefully I get it back on the rode soon. Oh yeah and I sold the turbo kit cuz I blew the head lol. So it's na right now.

    Just ordered some more wiring and should be here tomorrow. The plan is to slowly piece together another turbo kit then run it boosted for a while. Then there's a possibility of a engine swap :)

    Got what I hope is the last of the wiring that I'll need to get the truck running again. Hope to bring it back to life before the end of January.

    Need to build the lower half of my pacesetter header since the eBay seller I got it from didn't send it to me. Just waiting for a flex pipe to finish the connection to the 2.5" piping already on the truck. Gonna drive the truck around na for a few months to see if there are any other gremlins I need to take care of before the turbo goes back on.

    Even though I've made a ton of progress on the truck I haven't been recording much lol. The last thing I need to do before registering it is finishing up the exhaust. Here's part 1 of the build.
