Hey Ron go look at AFCLIVE.COM too if you want a horsepower on demand system. It's a variable fuel plate system you can control from the dash.
With stock turbo and injectors you can go from stock HP to 400 horses with the turn of a dial on the dash.

It's what i have in mine. I like it because I can cruise in economy mode for great fuel mileage then turn it up when i need to.
It's a really simple procedure to install too.

There are videos of how to put them in.
And if you want you can go crazy and pump it up to 900 HP if you put some things on your motor like bigger injectors, larger turbo and such.
They explain it on the Web site.

Coffee is done brewing. 26 with snow this morning. Heading to 30 with snow most of the day. Sassy did well with her surgery. But does not want to drink or eat yet. Will be calling vet today.

Rail, motorhome racing over Mackinac Bridge.

Curtis, Melissa looks good. Those 4 weeks will come soon.

Prayers and best wishes for all.

Good Morning All.

Ron, you can go to TST.com and look at the different fuel plates for the P-7100 pumps, and I believe your 5.9 has the same pump as my 8.3 P-7100 pump! They have a very good website, and very good instructions on how to do this swap! They were very prompt in their delivery, the free shipping only took a few days!
I did a lot of research about this swap, and am going to tackle it myself, with the help from Wes! I am going to swap out the governor springs also, when I do this pump work! I have good access to the pump under the bed and the fuel plate is on the top rear of the pump, the governor springs are going to be harder to get too, as they are on the side of the pump, so we'll see?! Won't know till take a good look at it I guess?
We can check yours to see if it has been changed or messed with, as they have one bolt on the fuel plate that has to have a slot cut in it with a chisel or drive a torx bit into it to remove it! And the governor spring access plug has a tamper proof wire across it, so if it is still intact, it has not been messed with!
I am hoping it won't be too bad of access, has to be better than the 12 valve 5.9's in the 94 to 98 Dodge pickups, that is for sure!
Rail!

Thanks Stan. I will check out that site.

It seems to be white axle grease as far as I can tell !!!!
Guess Ill be walking around a lot with a shovel again.

There's some talk about it turning to rain ,,,,,I'm thinkin'
such luck but sure won't be bummed if it does .

More likely it will be ice again though ice seems to be the theme this year.....

(does anyone know where I can get one of those power boost kits for my 350 ? )

Good Morning All! Hope everyone is ok or getting there. Taking Sally for another CT Scan today , she's not happy about having to drink that contrast stuff again. I wonder how much of all these tests are kickbacks? She only had one a month ago. Freddy had 5 seizures yesterday, went back to the Vet and got some phenobarbital. He hasn't had one since 4pm so we will see, he does have that faraway look in his eyes, but is eating and walking around so we wait. Curtis hope your legs are getting better! Found the folder and title for the old 88, gonna give it to the kid today and turn the plates in . I can't believe that I can't get 10 months credit on the motorhome plates and apply it to the Dakota p/u renewal, the DMV says i'd have to tranfer the MH plates to the p/u to get credit which incurs another "Transfer Fee" and i'd have to renew it in 10 months, so I guess i'll just let NY screw us out of 75-100 bucks , jeez it never ends! Have fun everyone and be safe!

Hi gang,
Been kinda busy around here, mostly the yearly book work, good ole tax time.
Popeye, Tim's talkin' F......it's -9 with -20 wind chill, headed for down to possibly -40 in Iowa right now. Last year it hit nearly -60 wind chill once, I was there. That's pretty dangerous. This year I'm not, and I'm just fine with that. Keep warm Tim & Joe.
Prayers for those healing.
Have a good night all.

Coffee sure taste good and warm today. -3 F with clear skies this morning. Heading to 20 F with lots of sun. Grocery shopping today after it warms a little.
Sassy is doing good after anesthesia wore off. Cannot figure why she needs to wear the plastic collar.
Got enough snow yesterday to get tractor out and plow. Dogs are happy they do not have to go out in snow up to their nose.

Tim, stay in a warm place.

Happy Valentines Day.

Good Morning All.

Good morning all!

Tim,,,,, Yikes!!! Too cold! 60* here at 7am.

Happy Valentines day all!! Gordons idea,,,,, and a good one. We (the guys) are all making the ladies dinner tonight for V day. I made a pot of french onion soup for the soup course yesterday. Just have to heat it and add the bread and chesse. Should be a fun time.

Electra, Ugh to tax time! That stinks! Gordon and I were talking about your park a while back, point of confusion. Is it on the same property you live on? Or a different location?

Have a great day all!

L.

No coffee this morning. -0 with clear skies this morning. Heading to 32 with chance of snow in pm. Off to get a MRI this morning. No food or drinks since dinner last evening. But I will make up for with a full breakfast at local restaurant after procedure. No other plans.

Tim and those further north. Way to cold. Keep warm and safe.

Good Morning All.
