It's like a more fine chain. Something used for old school bike locks. lol Maybe a little bit heavier. I may look for some hangers I can have welded on or bring it to Exhaust Pros. I really haven't gotten into welding much so I'd rather not burn through the pipe. lol

The rear hanger really needs to get fixed as it sits on nothing. Well actually it touches the spare tire. lol The kit was intended for a 1998-'02 or a 24 valve.

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.

Sunday I went from buying a hitch, ball and some floor mats to completely cleaning it inside and out. Then I paid a visit to MAP Monday for something. The truck handled it'self quite well. I was impressed. It does need more umph though. Sadly..I don't think that's going to happen for awhile.

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.

I just spent the last.. 12 hours adding a few little details to the truck. I REALLY like how everything came out. I need to learn how to work with Plastidip though. This has only been my second time using it. Give me your opinions.

We're talking "Stage 3" DTT rebuild kit or Goerend Master overhaul kit plus a billet input. Goerend high capacity pan, Goerend triple disc converter and some sort of aftermarket cooler w/fan.

I'm really up in the air on a flex plate. Many people have been fine with stock ones to 900+ HP, but some have broke them with less. OH, forgot to mention a shift kit of some sort and a gauge package. Specifically for the trans. temp., but the boost and pyro. will be added precaution.

That's the feeling I got as well. I figured the guys on CumminsForum and such wouldn't get the reference though. lol Minus he hasn't decided he needs to move onto bigger and "better" things. lol A person has to do what they have to do though.

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.

It's a dodge, of course the transmission puked! Had to replace the one in my durango with under 80k on it.

Yeah, Chrysler didn't exactly know how to build a HD transmission. Then again, what company knows how to build an automatic for a diesel? Let alone one that will be making more power than it was designed to make and be beat on. lol

I understand on the Durango though. The instructor teaching the class in which I am doing this in was the transmission guy at the local Chrysler Center for over...gosh I don't even rememeber how long; MANY years anyway. He mentioned the plethora of Dakotas, Durangos and Rams he worked on. Among others.

Exactly what I was going to say. I'd rather have a cummins>duramax>powerstroke.

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.

Any transmission attached to a 318 or 360 basically sucked. Whatever they used on the 318's seem worse, especially if you try to tow.

I'd take a Duracrap for the Chevy part but I'd nearly want a Powerchoke first. Screw 'em both. lol I'll keep what I've got.

One word...... Allison

Then for an engine a pre-egr common rail ISB would be the best combo.

lol When I said no company knows how to make a decent transmission I wasn't kidding. Allisons are cute for a injector burning Duracrap but I don't think one would last long in my truck especially with my goals.

The only way I'd own a common rail would be with a P-Pump and a decent lift pump.

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.

Decided to downgrade a little from what I had posted earlier. I went with the following; Goerend single disc TC with billet rear, full
Goerend Master Overhaul Kit, Goerend high capacity pan, Autometer gauge kit, Derale Atomic Remote Trans. cooler and a TransGo shift kit.

If this 47RH doesn't love me after this I don't know what will make it! lol

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.

Here is a well needed update. With the lovely two days a week I get to work on this thing it has been a PITA to make any progress. I even went as far as taking the valve body home to work on. Any who, on to the nice clean product.










All I have to do now is put the over drive unit on and essentially install it. There's minor details like running wires for my gauges (trans. temp, EGT & boost), along with making temporary trans. cooler lines. After the truck is moving I'll throw the little mods I've collected since it's been down on it. They're nothing major but they'll make it a little more fun to cruise around with. Hopefully this summer I'll have two jobs and be able to do a little with this as well as my other vehicles.

Re: Something that blows black!...kinda'.



...aaaaaaaaaaaaand..

She's in!



Not full of fluid or ready to drive but damn close. I need to install the TC to flex plate bolts, finish the kick down assembly and then stick the dipstick back in so I can fill it up. Then a test drive! Damn it's been too long!

Thanks for looking!
