    Bus/truck accident in NJ.

    I know two companys like that now in dump trucking.The drivers or some of them and all of their trucks is what makes the public look up at us with so much hate.Here we have a well balanced like/hate drivers in four wheels.One may cut you off and the next one will go out of their way to help you.

    checking for boost leaks

    I always turn the engine slow and watch the pressure gauge and when it comes up the highest then stop turning it.

    2000 rd688 e7 400hp starter silonards help

    Before some one ask you need to tell us what starter model you have.It very well could be that you would be better off replacing the starter.

    E-9 Oil out the breather

    If its got a dynotard brake on it then it could have a oil leak inside the covers.

    EM7 upgraded inj and turbo

    You do understand that this engine is a maxidyne.If i had a maxidyne i would not want it to be in the 400 hp range.If it was a not a maxidyne then i would use a 400/427 Vmac injector and turbo plus max out the rack on the pump and set timing at spcs for a 400.

    You could drill the flywheel housing and tap to 7/16 C/T like the older engine used.
