    Yeah, I stood on it all the way to the end.

    91 Octane with EGR..has quite a few miles on it too so lobes probably aren't sealing like they used to.

    7.65psi is a nice number for a stock pulley!

    Going to be working on a solution for that pretty soon here. We talked about it in here a bit. Im going to try and retrofit one into the ac intake under the passenger cowl. Just need to do some testing to see how moisture is in that area. Dont want the filter where its going to get moldy.

    But theres always going to be dirt I know that. Ill find out how well the dirt vaccums off the dash after I get this princess off the pavement again

    Check Build thread
    Today I changed all the brake fluid and bled then brakes, put new fender flare plastic tabs on to hold the flare itself better on the truck, prepped sanded and painted sliders again, checked all nuts/bolts (prep for moab)

    Fairly productive :notsure::popcorn:

    Nice. I have my Hertz still in a box... need to order a few more pieces still. Which adapter's did you go with? 6.5" speakers correct? Thanks


    I just added the Gentex to my list. Didn't know about the homelink model. Other than the new mount, anything required to run the homelink that you know of?

    Pricey little bastard. You'd probably be fine running it but I would want to replace it. Check local junkyards? The ones around here never have older Toyota parts.

    Yeah I still wanna mess around with that. It's just that it's been so damn cold lately. Hit the negatives last night. Not good weather for doing anything with the truck, especially not non-essentials.

    I agree I'll probably do it once I find one on the cheaper side . I'm sure a 4runner one will work fine

    How is that on the back. Mine was so close to duckts on the left side that I had to fabricate a custom plug for backup camera. Also stock mounting brackets in 95 Tacoma had different hole locations than modern radios. I drilled maching holes in stock brackets an the doble din fit like from factory. No frames needed.

    Yeah I have a 2.2" pulley ready to go on but I'm a little concerned that I'll be pushing like 10 psi and I'll need to do injectors, rail, etc. and tune the crap out of it lol
    Are you running a 7th injector setup or a standalone tuner or anything?

    Bald tires are the bestest. They're more gooder on that snow.

    Check out my builds! ----->
    Today my friend and I completed the CB Radio Ashtray Mod! I decided on the Uniden Pro520XL. We also took the time to add in a blue sea fuse block for future upgrades. I used a 3' firestik antenna mounted on a repurposed hood channel mount, and added in a Pyle PA speaker under the hood. I had to make some custom brackets for both the relay/fuse block and the PA horn. We really didn't hit any snags when installing, and I'm very happy with result!

    So po302 code is thrown up and it has for a while. The first time I retorqued the the spark plugs they were very loose thinking it would fix it. Nope... so I bought new spark plugs and the truck seems to run better but I still am getting the po302 code :mad: is it the coil pack? The truck runs smoother with the new spark plugs but it's still throwing the code...

    Man I'm jealous. Where you mounted the fuse block and mounting plate is where the charcoal canister is on my '98. There's no place for me to put anything.

    I need to run to the junkyard and pull a temperature sensor, and a wiring pigtail to solder wires to. You would tap into your map light circuit for power, or straight to the fusebox.

    You can buy complete plug and play kits on eBay with everything you need for like $80 dollars. I recommend you get these kits instead of what I did so it would make your life a 100 times easier since it has all the wiring, mounts, taps, and everything. It's just that the plug-n-play kits don't have homelink, temperature, and compass in the configuration I wanted.
