Well spent today in the shed.

Removed intercooler, heat sheild, welded in egt bung for my gauge, fitted new ASE intercooler, wired fan in to a switch on the dash, and hooked everything up, and all seems to be working. Bonus for me. lol

Old and new

Yours is a red truck Olly, so it would by default already go faster even without your new inter cooler... But having an inter cooler the size of a small house means you will now be able to tow me up the range!

Well just got back from a quick run, and I am impressed so far. EGT went to a max of 500 on a long hill climb. That was in 3rd gear doing 60. Rpm about 2700. It hit 500 just as I climbed over the top, then dropped back to 400 very quickly. Seems to have a bit more pulling power. Will have to load it up and see how it goes with camping gear in.

Never had EGT or boost gauge before, I am quessing it is normal for EGT to go up and down so much with throttle application

Nah not at all! Was $150 + a hole saw and I got it from total tools. It goes well mate. It is designed to be used in a drill press but my drill press is a bit small for it, so I dyna bolted it to the floor in the garage and just used an electric drill on it. Worked great and saved a heap of time.
