My turbo outlet flange and clamp came from pure diesel performance today. I might get the exhaust started this weekend

ive decided to go with a 1987 S-10 Blazer fuel tank. its cheap, it fits between the frame rails, and it uses an intank pump. again ive tried to order the direct fit straps and nothing fits so im making all of my own mounting hardware out of some square tubing and 2" strap steel.

it took longer to square and level the tank in the frame than it did to make the upper brackets. im going to use some rubber hose slipped over the strap to protect the tank.

Busy weekend. Finished mounting my fuel tank, finished my shifter, got my escort ZX2 center console mocked up, and found a throttle body.

Awesome work!
I have a b2600i and have mulled tinkering with the fe3. Does the fe3 block mount to the b2600i trans cleanly?

i had to move the truck to a different stall at work than it usually goes into and i found that the tires rub the cab now that have the spacers on them. the spacers need to be there and im sticking with 245/40/17s all around so i had to do some more cutting and welding. i used some thicker 16ga to keep it from distorting when my fat *** pushes on it to settle in my seat. i was worried that it would take up more of my limited leg room but the little extra isnt noticable

It looks so plain with the hood on. I guess it will work in my favor for sleeper status...

i started on the hvac. after a lot of looking around i decided on using all of it out of a 2001 kia sephia. cheap to replace, lots of them every where and the size of everything seemed about right. im going to be putting the evap and heater core in a custom box that is gonna make up the front of my center console. i didnt want to take away from the tiny bit of space that my passengers have to put their feet.

so far i have the blower motor mounted.

fresh out of the junk yard for $60



massive evap. should keep my cab nice and chilly on those 100*+ days



heater core is alot smaller but i have heated seats so im not worried.




i didnt take pics of the mounting but there is a 10ga plate that is welded to the underside of the cowling with studs in it to bolt the blower to. that blower pushes a ton of air. im building a box that will cover it and hold a cabin filter.
