Damm I wanted to come down so bad Saturday,  work and life got in the way.  Got my fuel tank, fuel lines and filters all cleaned and sorted out from the Idaho sand that was giving me trouble the last day or so I was there.   Put new injectors in and fired it up, vrorommmmmmmmmm sounds like a formula V.  Had a new to me machine VF3 with a Haas 310  fourth axis put on the floor last week and had to get it ready and running for the work week. 

Looks like flag day in Glamis is out for this year so I can make a couple of LS runs this fall.  Got the TH towrn down, Genny still needs fixing. And I need to get back to work, had to fire a worker today so I'm interviewing job app's.

i didn't take pics but pulled the exh manifold off my rail last night to change the t3 flange gasket. one hole side was burnt and that was the side that lost the bolts lol. it was also the gasket that came with the set up and a very poor gasket imo so i am replacing it with a stock t3 gasket off the 88 thunderbird turbo 2.3 engine which fits perfect, SS and in stock locally for $6 lol

You better check the flange surfaces for flatness and warp. Bet a dollar that's the issue.

haven't checked the turbo flange yet but manifold flange appears to be flat.the gasket wasn't SS it has a perforated ss top and bottom but with an aluminum core. the new one is SS through and through.
