was going back through this thread looking for info on the blower setup and noticed that all of the pics hosted on photobucket are blurred because photobucket is stupid, thought it was because it was hosted 3rd party so I logged in over there (first time in about a decade, haha) and tried searching your username, still no good.

I've always loved this build. So clean and well thought out, yet still wheeled hard. I wanted to build the blue 94 that's in my avatar like you had done yours, but sold that and continued building my 91. Maybe my next one will be built as cleanly as yours

This truck was a good learning experience for sure. I did a lot of trial and error with this truck. My next rig will be a little different and hopefully built the way i want the first go around.

i was bummed to have missed you....that thing is a beast.
I caught a glimpse of the infamous rattle trap thing you call a ranger on my way out. I had just finished showing a random Jeeper the importance of a death jack while putting his coil spring back in.lol MFer was blocking the whole driveway trying to "flex" enough to get his rear coil back in.

I honestly kind of fell off of the grid when i was doing the blower build. I was in the process of moving and getting slammed at work. Now Im in the process of settling into a our new house, getting married, and still getting slammed at work.

It happens to us all, haha. Life happens, I know the feeling.
What size pulley are you running and how many psi are you getting with that pulley? I'm looking for about 5 to 6 psi but boost is a somewhat new field for me. Making an adapter and moving/ extending wiring harnesses aren't and issue though.

I want to say 2.375ish. 6-7 psi at anything over half throttle and 2000+rpm
