Personally, I'm not really into boost gauges, but I think an EGT is indispensable.

And, don't worry, I'm not offended that you don't think my truck is the nicest

It was brought in during the 80's when it was legal. Import laws changed in 89 or 90.

I have pretty much the same setup. In the binnacle I have egt,fuel, coolant temp. In the center dash/radio box I have from left to right: tach, boost, oil pressure. I don't see the need for a volt meter on a diesel.

Will you hurry up and get this thing installed already...




I am dying to hear how it compares to your current setup as I have a 200 sitting here and my 90 will be here soon.

Big Day #1

Fired up the engine Today, fired right up, just a quick puff of smoke and that was all.
One student did get covered in oil, oil cooler line came loose.
Now its time to take the truck a part.

2.5 just about out!

Engine should be out tomorrow. Wings and hood are going in for paint, I've decided to go white to match my doors.

Follow-up Post:

Does anyone know what color white the Doors are that came off the 2007-2008 trucks in Alabama?

you can probably go to LR UK and just look up what white LR is using now. Maybe Chawton or Alaska white. That is what's on the 07 08 LR3's etc. What are you going to do with the 2.5 petrol eng?

Got some sweet new doors for the truck, and since they are so perfect I've decided to paint the truck to match, Chawton(sp) White. Also got a Wind Screen Frame , so C white it is.

Some opinions of hood blackouts, I don't want the whole hood to be white, so I'm going with some type of black on the hood.
I'm leaning towards some carbon weave black decals I found, I know its a bit "Fast and Furious" by I am a bit of a carbon freak.

I never understood the carbon "look." If it is actually Cf that is great. But carbon look decals and the like are silly. But if you like it go for it and who cares what others think. keep in mind whatever you use for a hood blackout should be matte or flat finish if it is to perfrom its intended purpose.

As for functionality, at least the check plate pieces provide some added rigidity and protection from people like me who like to walk on bonnets and fenders and put tools and other items on the fenders while I am working.
