    Haha I know. Matt says he’s working on shipping more kits this week, whether mines in there or not I want to have everything in hand and ready to install when the kit shows up.

    I'd take up Meso on his offer if you don't buy them yourself. The snails are going to put out a lot of heat. All this heat protection is insurance against the what ifs later on

    Definitely buying Meso’s blankets.



    Anyone want an upgraded fuel pump? Tea-coma bought the upgraded pump with his kit, I have no need. Matt won’t return the pump, so re-sale it is.

    The controller is definitely appealing.

    That’s option C. I believe, and just in case you didn’t know, option C comes with a fuel pump controller as well.

    Ah, thank you for the heads up. I had no idea.

    Already verified I’m good on the recall.
    From what I can tell it only effects 18-20 trucks. Mines a 17.

    That blows! According to the link Hawg just posted I’m good to go. And if I do get the recall I’ll have Toyota fix it. Sounds like pumps are hard to find though. Either way, I’ll take the risk. I don’t need a $650 pump setup.

    Toyota extended it to 2017's towards the end of 2020. My VIN was still clear when I'd dropped off my truck at the shop however.

    I looked mine up and im definitely on the list. No remedy as of yet
    Yes. Also I just looked my vin up and im in on the 20v682. They're slowly expanding this recall to older models so I wouldn't be surprised if it continues further to more of us

    I just PM’d Meso this same question, but can anyone give me a run down of how they utilized their heat shielding? Picked up Meso’s used blankets and picking up lava wrap for the DP’s.

    But, I have no idea what I’m doing with anything on this list:

    That recall campaign seems to be expanding and that could put you in the group of russian roulette of pumps to fail. If it does fail while you are in full boost, you could be kicking and cursing at yourself. Because you will be acquiring the powermax, it would make a lot of sense to hang on to that pump/controller incase you’d ever want a bit more, along with added piece of mind.

    Maybe... just seems like a giant waste, especially on install time. I’m definitely not going to install this “just in case”...

    It's a pretty big what if, though
