I ordered the upper ET hose from FCPEuro and it arrived quickly, the right side hard pipe/hose connection has developed a slow leak. Unfortunately, the hose did not slide onto the ET (the two notches on top and bottom) so I pulled the connector/hose section from the old hose and installed it on the new one. Luckily, I was careful about the nipple on the radiator hose so there's that. Why does it have to be so difficult?

Thanks for reply Your right, at least they wont be to bad to remove.

What the ride height like with H&R's? Any idea if they would be similar to m-sport?
You can buy TCKline koni white rear shocks if you want them to be externally adjustable while inside the car. They are pretty pricey though and not really worth it tbh. You should be able find an optimal setting within 2-3 tries.

Just bought this OBS GMC. I practically stole it.
1993 Sierra work truck edition
4.3 v6 4spd manual with over drive
130K miles, 1 owner.
I'll make this a story as short as possible. My sister and her husband bought the house across the street from them, the owner of the house temporarily left this truck behind. Supposedly his dad gave it to him and he didn't really want it. The truck sat on the property for about a year. My sister had a Cinco de mayo party, they invites the guy who the purchased the house from. We spoke about the truck, agreed on $1250. Just found a Receipt in the glove box for $6k worth of work. Completed new interior, clutch, fly wheel, spark plugs, radio and speakers. Also the truck was repainted withing the last few years.

Picked up my OEM BBK from power coating. The Phoenix yellow wasn't doing it for me.

And for me, bright red and bright yellow are a little too "look at me" for my little N52 E91. I thought hard about the BMW M-Sport blue, but decided to keep it classy and go with my monochromatic look, and went went with the silver.

.... I couldn't resist bragging the Brembo though.

Can't wait to install it all. I just need to find some local help to bleed them when done.

Another injector down Original Index 7 with 144K on it. Not bad, honestly. Cylinder 4. FYI dealers will price match BMW of Northwest which has them for $352 each.

Also replaced the two rear underbody panels which was a royal PIA.

I know right! It WAS running just fine until yesterday. It sputters out at low speeds (1st and 2nd gear) I read it may be the egr valve so I replaced it but no luck. I'm just hoping it's not the fuel pump. I just filled up the 25G fuel tank so that shits gonna be heavy.

Finished my single turbo yesterday & my carbon CSL trunk showed up. Put that on today & currently doing 2 step colder plugs before i data log for ken @ wedge.

Drives pretty good on the base map. Only on wastegate @ 10psi of boost. Virtual dyno estimates it at 360hp & 310ft lb tq right now. Which is it feels like to me. Excited to crank up the boost.

All the old plugs coming out look great. No signs of leaky injectors at 115k miles on my current index 12s

Also, my exhaust sounds terrible now. Pretty much just straight pipe. Cats are halfway blown out. Sounded great with the stock twins but now it sounds so raw and raspy. Went ahead and bought a vrsf street exhaust. Hopefully that shows up soon cause its way too loud and raspy right now.
