View Full Version : Dan's truck part II

ok, that other thread was too damn long. So, here's where we stand. I got all the plugs changed and stopped the exhaust leaks (that i caused). truck is idling good. i logged some data and sent it to don. all looked fine but the truck was running like ass. lack of power, bogging out etc.

he made some tranny adjustments and vwaaaala. like magic. made a big difference. i'm still thinking something is not 100% cause from a dead stop the tires don't break loose. it gets to 90 in a friggin hurry though.


The newest discovory though is this. my voltage is fluctuating while cruising. 55mph, 2000rpm, in vacuum, voltage drops from 14ish to 11ish, headlights dim, comes back up. I moved the main alt wire away from the spark plug wires and away from the crossover pipe. Haven't driven it yet. Will report back tomorrow.


Anyone think I may have a loose ground somewhere? never crossed my mind until about 4sec ago.

oh, and i just did the troubleshooting on the new dynotune a/f gauge. turns out my O2 sensor is dead. oops. no wonder it wasn't reading accurate. I'm thinking of selling the LC1 and dynotune gauge for a Wideband Commander

Sounds good Dan. What convertor dou you have in there??? That might be part of your spinning problem

DanaliHD
03-19-2007, 09:30 PM
converter is a Yank SC3000. It spun the shit out of the tires when i first picked it up. Although, i did put fat new tires on there. maybe they just grip really well, lol.

i hear ya on the lc-1 im starting to think there wayyyyyyy to picky and sensitive for NE weather, ill be going on my 4th sensor in 2 yrs :bang: as for the spinning tires. im willing to bet its the new tires plus the roads have , well were warming up, go out tonight and see what happens :jest;

What did you put for tires? New wheels too right? Did I miss that thread?

Actually that sensor was new.I used the one from the shop when we had it and never changed it.
Verify with EFI live if it's working right,not that shitty LC1 software crap.

As for spinning.Hold the brakes,roll the gas till you see 5+ lbs of boost and let the hammer drop.Should spin for a long time.

I put Weld Evo Renegade 8 wheels on 18X8.5" and Cooper Zeon XST 285/55/18 tires. According to the "troubleshooting" of the a/f gauge, the sensor is dead. It doesn't heat up. oh well.

The coolest thing happened tonight. Started the truck, sitting in the parking lot at work. truck was pretty quite, smooth idle. I was thinking, hmm, why is my dash so dim. looked at the voltage. it read under 12. like, 9 i would guess. lol. touched the gas a few times and it jumped back up to 14+ and stayed there. WTF? It's almost funny.................almost. It's got to be a ground wire or a bad connection somewhere right?

yuppers, so looks like i'm gonna be chasing ground wires and tearing into all these wire looms looking for a problem. Should i post up the voltage issue in another section on here? maybe somebody else will have some thoughts.

The truck is possesed, no question about it. :jest:

The altinator is directly wired the the computer.
The power wire is direct to the battery.
2 big ground wires with 1 to the frame and 1 to the motor.

Doubt any of those are the problem. I would start with the headlight mods you did.Vette's have a ton of problems when they modify the headlights.

03-21-2007, 01:37 PM
I say the rectifier might be blown. This is most likely due to a homotron. A homotron is a queer electron in the system that goes around blowing rectifiers. Noyzee has had that problem a lot.

the spinign issue might be because you where supercharged and your now turbo. you dont have the low end power as the supercharger gave you.

brake boosting will fix that

hmm, good call. i'll check it out. i also noticed my friggin blinker light on the gauge works when it wants to. one quick fist to the dash fixes it though, lol. something is loose in there for sure. also have a loose wire somewhere in the speaker of the rear pass door. gonna fix that tomorrow. i'm pulling the whole kit off tomorrow to re heat wrap it with black wrap. should look pretty sweet. i'll post pics if i remember

DanaliHD
03-25-2007, 09:18 PM
fixed it.............kinda. i hooked the eboost back up and now it runs like a champ. had to put the 10lb spring back in cause it was overboosting the stock settings. working out some TCC bugs right now. not diggin the locking unlocking settings. no big deal.

now the big challenge is gonna be making heads or tails of the eboost manual. I read it twice today and i'm still totally confused. right now i'm leaving it set to stock witch appears to run strictly off the wastegate.

DanaliHD
03-26-2007, 09:07 PM
wow, that didn't last long. back to running like ass. unreal. when the tcc locks the a/f goes to 17:1. thats fun.

the exhaust SMELLS. holy shit. very strange, wasn't like that 2 days ago.

the bov is missing 2 of 3 nuts. the 1 that was on there was loose. also the bov piston is all scratched up. According the the instructions that is a sign of wear and it needs to be replace. hmm, could this be the cause of my problems? probably not.

At this point i'm thinking it's mostly TC related. i have a funny feeling the converter is shot or one of the connectors to the trans is f'd up.

A/F seems fine, idle is fine, plugs/wires are fine, spark is fine, vacuum is 15ish at idle, it makes boost just fine (a little slower than usual right now).

when i'm not in boost it sputters, boggs, etc. BUT, there is no sign of this other than me telling you. No engine data i could show you would indicate a problem.

I'm bringing it to the trans guy who installed the tc tomorrow. see what he says. Also gonna look more into this bov issue. Then, don't know what.

I feel like i'm bi-polar. :jest:

pulled the turbo, downpipe, and crossover pipe off the truck again tonight. good times. checked the resistance on the plug wires. pass side were all the same, 0.92. Driver's side had 3 the same at 0.09 and one at 5.85. I replaced that one. Does it matter that the resistance on the pass and driver's side don't match?

anyway, the plugs all looked fine. I was worried about one of them because it didn't show much sign of wear. Then i did a compression test. all 8 cylinders were exactly the same, just shy of 9 on my cheapo advance auto parts gauge.

i put the driver's side coil pack were it belongs because it wasn't bolted down properly. grounded them both to the firewall. rewrapped the crossover and downpipe with the darker color exhaust wrap. now i need to spray it and put it all back together.

Friday it's going in for a vacuum check. hopefully something will show up. otherwise, nobody had a god damn clue what is wrong with it.

was the unfiring plug the one with the bad wire?

DanaliHD
03-27-2007, 10:27 PM
was the unfiring plug the one with the bad wire?

nope. not sure the plug wasn't firing. although that plug wire came off very easy. once i get it back together i'll know if that was the problem.

i'm probably gonna run to advance auto tomorrow after work to get the hose clamps and header wrap spray i need. especially cause they now have a really hot chick workin nights over there who's into drag trucks.

DanaliHD
03-27-2007, 11:08 PM
man i hope it was that easy. the problem is the track ran kick ass for 2 full days then barely ran all of a sudden. this is easily the 4th or 5th time it's happened. can't explain it.

it literally barely made it around the block today. i was scared.

DanaliHD
03-30-2007, 04:22 PM
LMFAO, i had a vacuum smoke test done today on the truck. Only found 3 BIG vacuum leaks. 2 on the intercooler pipe that ass clown custom made for me. the other was on the throttle body. hmm, gotta get ahold of nick williams to see if he'll fix it.

Anyway, the entire kit is again off the truck. I brought all of the pipes to a local welder who was shocked at what he saw. He was almost speachless at how bad the welds looked. Some of the worst he's seen. That makes me happy. He's gonna re-weld all of it then it's all going to Next Generation Powder Coating to get coated BLACK. They are doing a set of exhaust manifolds for me right now.

So, the truck will be down for a few weeks. I'm gonna order up some new valve covers too cause mine look like someone whiped their ass with them.

I think that's about all for now. It ran great for the 3 miles or so i drove it today. hardly any lag. ya know, the way it should run.

ok, just got back from myrtle beach. GOD DAMN everyone has exhaust systems and rims out there. unreal. Anyway, the welder called me today while i was in the shitter at the airport, lol. While laughing he said something along the lines of, ..."every weld was horrible, multiple leaks/holes. the welds were crumbling.....who did this?.... etc, etc." i'm paraphrasing cause i don't remember exactly what he said. He wasn't impressed with TZs welding skills or lack there of.

So, $150 later all the welds are redone and ready for the ceramic coater. I'm going to get the pipes and pay the guy in the am. Should have the coated pipes next saturday. my mother is dropping them off on her way back to westfield and my pops is bringing them up here next weekend when he comes to visit. I'm loving that plan. I don't have to do shit. lol.

And here's a tip for you turbo guys: Don't start the engine with the turbo kit off the vehicle. Oil will spray all over the fucking place. OOPS!!!!!!

Turbo kit is baking as I type. He's going to polish the intake side of the turbo and ceramic coat the back side black. Can't friggin wait. It's going back on the truck on FRIDAY!!!!! $850 total. not too bad.

My issue now is, my Nick Williams TB is still leaking and I don't know how to fix it. Actually, I can't even get it off the truck. all 5 bolts are out but that bitch is not moving.

The new aeromotive pump controller is on the truck. I moved it a little and made a shield for it out of sheet metal. Gonna finish bolting it up tomorrow. (this is to keep water from splashing on it).

The new wideband is installed, looks sweeeeeeeeeet. Went with a wideband commander.

That's about it for now. I'm praying to the gods of shitty luck that my truck runs perfect once i get it back together.

have you figured out the wire problem you were haveing? good time to put in a new harness if you didn't allready fix the issue with that.

DanaliHD
04-09-2007, 07:46 PM
have you figured out the wire problem you were haveing? good time to put in a new harness if you didn't allready fix the issue with that.

we'll find out as soon as i put it back together. There was 1 plug wire that ohm'd out drastically different than the rest. i replaced it. we'll see if that was the problem.

As far as the engine harness. i agree. I want to. I'm not sure how difficult it would be to do. Is is something I could do myself? I was looking at the one Nelson Performance makes.

Shit, I should have the engine pulled now too cause it's leaking oil from somewhere. rear main seal maybe. Maybe I should have it towed to a local joint and have them do the seal and harness all at the same time. What's another couple grand in labor at this point, lol.

ace68
04-09-2007, 08:01 PM
I don't know about a performance harness I was thinking you could just replace the factory one thats there. I know you can get some at the bone yard for a few hundred. If it's the engine harness I thought you had issues with the main harness in the cab because of a bad radio? As far as the seals don't you have a new built motor in there maybe you still have some coverage on it, if the seals are leaking?

DanaliHD

it's a guessing game at this point. Nobody knows for sure what the problem is. We assume it's an electrical problem but who knows. once i fire it up on friday i'll have a better answer. as for the harness, the engine harness is/was dangerously close to the turbo kit, the unwrapped, uncoated turbo kit. shit started to melt. (that was how tz left it, don fixed that part)

the extent of the heat damage is unknown. If it still isn't running right after i put it back together I have no choice but to get it into the hands of a professional.

DanaliHD
04-13-2007, 09:49 PM
well, it's all back together, kinda. I fired it up and there are definately some exhaust leaks :bang: . I don't know exactly where from but I think from the manifold on the passenger side. I hope to christ it's nothing on the drivers side because it was a bitch getting the kit back on and i have ZERO interest in taking it back off tomorrow.

the good news is the ceramic coater did a nice job. He pollised my turbo and it looks awesome.

More bad news is my buddy had put my 2 million candle watt spotlight on my drivers seat facing down and when we hooked the battery back up................yeah, lots of smoke. The leather is all fucked up in one spot on the driver's seat. Oh well. It wasn't his fault. It friggin smells though


Looks like tomorrow i'll be firing it up again to see where the leak(s) are.

contemplating taking the whole fucking thing apart again tomorrow. i just want this to be over. seriously. mental breakdown.

DanaliHD
05-01-2007, 09:22 PM
so, i brought it to a local shop 1mile down the road cause i simply mentally couldn't handle working on it anymore. they took the kit off, made new gaskets cause the ones on their were shit, pulled the valve covers just for the hell of it and UH OH, rockers were hitting the fucking valve covers. http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/2387/att1vj6.th.jpg (http://img101.imageshack.us/my.php?image=att1vj6.jpg)

so, they put it back together and the bitch is in my driveway again. no power whatsoever. totaly god damn dog. somehow the kit is just not lining up right. big leak between the turbo and downpipe. im taking a fucking sledge hammer to it tomorrow. That should fix it. lol

I ordered a new Vband clamp for the turbo/dp connection cause the one that is there has never seemed to fit right(and i broke it). I also just ordered some 1/2" valve cover spacers. hope to christ they'll work.

i'm possibly taking it to my local transmision guy to have the rear main seal fixed because oh yeah, not sure if i mentioned it, but it fucking leaks.

that's about all i've got for updates incase anyone is interested. 1 year and 3 days. that's how long it's been since i dropped the truck off in RI at SDCE.

DanaliHD
05-01-2007, 09:25 PM

anyway, truck is still fucked. newest problem is the rockers are smashing into the fucking valve covers. can't believe nobody noticed that. anywho, ordered valve cover spacers today. probably will have them next week.

Slowhawk
05-01-2007, 10:26 PM
You actually don't need taller valve covers or spacers.That is the baffle which you just cut out.We just clearanced them on Matts truck with no problems.

Funny though.We had the valve covers off and there was no marks.Of course that was before running it hard.Looks like we might be seeing some serious valve float problems to do that.

So,all in all -send the spacers back because I won't use them.Because #1- they always fit like crap ,#2-there is already limited clearance on the driver side and the spacer will push the coils into the turbo, #3 custom wires will have to be made for all the plugs.

something definately happened to the kit while getting rewelded. It just won't line up right at the downpipe/turbo flange. i persuaded it into place, lol, but it's off by "a C hair" as my neighbor said, lol. that's the only friggin spot it's leaking. it idle's great so it's got that going for it, lol.

some day the truck will run right. but it's gonna friggin cost me. i'm figuring on spending at least another $10,000 first. that will put me at $45,000.

it's getting picked up tomorrow by an auto transporter. $645. not too shabby. What am I planning to do? Not a god damn clue. I'm hoping they get it and say, "you stupid fuck, you blew off a vacuum line. Here ya go, all fixed" but, i'm certain that's not what will happen.

gotta solve the rocker clearance issue, got to solve the leaking flange between the turbo and dp, got to deal with the leaking exhaust system which i discovered today while on the lift at the tranny shop, got to deal with the HEAT issue, got to find the electrical problem if one exists, got to program the eboost2 properly, got to deal with my fuelling issue maybe, and got to make sure the tune is on point.

It needs to be 100%. If that means scrapping that pos turbo kit, so be it. Maybe I should just have them throw on a Procharger F1. I'm gonna be paying for this for the next 5 year or so anyway, lol.

speaking of which, anyone want to buy a hot tub? mountain bike? lawn tractor? longdrive golf clubs? my house? :jest:

yeah, too bad we didn't think of that back in December. could have saved me thousands of dollars in labor. we should have know. you know what they say, you can't polish a turd. lol

why did i just say lol, that's not fucking funny.

didn't you get your money back? and I think you need a new motor after seeing some of the pics with the grayish oil.

Quick question, any reason why you chose w2w? Don really busy? I mean if the kit is going to be scrapped then why not just have Don build you one similar to the red trucks?

from what I have gathered there has already been too much money spent with Don and the truck still didnt run right. So its off to shop 4. Right Dan :) :) :)

Pretty sure Dan just doesn't want to burden Don and Dez with the headache anymore than what it already has! Can't blame him for that... but if Don has the time, that's where I would go back to if it were me! Hell even if I had to wait for the available time!

Pull the turbo kit and do it completely over or most of it anyhow, pull the motor and freshen it up (I would considering what I saw coming out of the breather when it arrived as Dez) and well, over all just start from scratch.. what choice is there at this point right??

Oh hell just Procharge it!! :judge:

ya because your truck came out aweful, better not be the fucking reason. If people did what they were told in the first fucking place it wouldnt be shop #2 nevermind 4. And furthermore when you fuck with your own shit and make it worse....you deserve what you get. Someone better clear the air.

My bad, didnt realize there were other issues, thats too bad considering I cant imagine W2W being anything less than double what Don would charge to redo the whole thing. On a side note once I have my mortgage all set for the house im buying the GF is letting me go out looking for a new toy. Hoping to pick up another f-body or a gto, then its off to Don for god knows what. Maybe just go with a procharger off the bat and be done with it.

Speedy~ I will never be bored with that turbo setup.

Mike & Marcel~ I agree with you bother 1000000%. The whole truth needs to come back out, but it isnt that easy. Hell I almost got band on another board for just trying to tell the truth and protect a sponsor :( :( :(

lol, this is just getting funny now. What the hell are you talking about? I'll send my truck to whoever the fuck i want. why does everything i do concern you so much? i don't even know you.

I already said I have no issue with Don or Dez. Why are you trying to make it sound like I do? That's just not cool man.

and i didn't fuck with anything. I did exactly what i was told. Change the spark plugs, get the bad welds fixed, hmm, that's about it. I learned alot in the process too. me taking the kit off the truck a few times is not the problem here. I'll find out soon what the problem is and maybe post up letting anyone interested know. maybe.

and i agree with mike too. if tz had actually produced the fucking kit and delivered it to sdce when he said he would none of this would have happend. i got fucking conned by him and i've been paying ever since. I'm glad you think i deserve that man, that's real fucking nice.

Dan~ I dont think you deserve to have to pay all this money to get your truck up and running. But to go on another board and say that Dez did have the truck running is a lie. And did you or did you not hook the eboost up after Don said dont???

I really dont care, but I just dont want a bad shadow to be cast of the work Don/Dez does.

Its funny. I was the one who almost got band from this site, standing up for YOU, when TZ f'd you over. I was the one who pushed to have them banded from the site and tried to get John to give you some money back. But I guess you forgot that..

This is the last time I will comment on this subject.
