I recommend it. It give you the ability to control preboost fueling and max fueling via controlling pressure to AFC. Tuning on the fly as you drive, basically.

I think stock DVs will make it much easier for me to tune it better. Currently running 7mm DVs and 5x14 injectors (650 hp fuel package from power driven diesel)

The blowby have gotten so bad and I need to do something about it.

I tried to find 2013+ Ram 3500 4x4 with Aisin. They’re harder to find than 6 speed manual trucks, and cost too much for mile IMHO. $30k even for high miles trucks.

I tried everything i could think of to pin point where the pulsating blow by was coming from, all inconclusive. I pulled the head over the Labor Day weekend and discovered multiple cylinders are in bad shape. Cylinder #5 have cratered wall. Head gasket blown in multiple spots and somehow all are either into oil galleries or between cylinders, probably at least 4 cylinders are compromised. No idea how it still have power and 18-19 mpg on highway.

Picked up a low mileage donor truck yesterday for the transplant...

The Diesel Shop want $2,000 to go through and o-ring the cylinder head, F that. I found a CAD assembly that we may work with to create a CNC program for to mill & cut o-ring grooves the cylinder head at my work.

That’s worse inside than I expected
