    On a 4x4 site, KOTH would usually reference King of the Hammers.... Here in Chit-Chat, it should be safe to use that acronym for King of the Hill

    I've owned 24 CTD's in some fashion or another (scrapping, donors, builders, flips, drivers, etc.) ... Hell, there was 1 holy grail '98 12v QC (but it was an auto) that transferred ownership 5 times between myself, Morgan (CO4x4 login Yetti), and my dad. I think Morgan and I had a total of 10 vehicle transactions between the two of us and 8 were CTDs.... one of them that wasn't had a '97 12 in the bed as a donor

    Man, it's taking me back....There are 3 of the 24 Cummins trucks that I'd really like to have back.
    Morgan... That is a guy I haven't talked to in years. Traded many a vehicle with him back in the day. He grew up a mountain canyon away from me and I have known him since I was 15. Still vividly remember the Volvo 240 I bought from him, DD'ed for a month, then took through Carnage (Boulder) with minimal winching needed but serious body damage taken, and then I sold back to him for the same amount I bought it from him for. Then he sold it to one of our mutual buddies who needed a cheap DD. I ended up taking that one to the scrapper a couple years later when our buddy locked up the motor. That was one tough car...

    So since you have so much experience with these, let me pick your brain. Wanting to keep the reliability but wanting a bunch more HP or torque. MPG doesn't bother me much, some, but not too much. Here is what I am planning:

    Compounds using a S300/S400
    DPS 3 piece exhaust manifold
    4" hi-flow exhaust
    Headstuds
    Remove Fuel Plate
    Reverse the AFC diaphragm
    4K GSK
    Adjustable overflow valve
    .055 delivery valves
    60# valve springs
    5x.014 injectors
    South Bend Cultch

    So what am I missing? Am I off track?

    I tried to switch to century link when that happened, they were pitching 60mb service which would cover what we needed it for. They missed 3 install appointments completely indicating that their system showed the appointment but never dispatched anyone for the install. So I cancelled before I ever had service and talked comcrap down to the same price point

    Morgan is an awesome dude and has forgotten more about CTDs than I'll ever learn. He's also a phenomenal electrician, and now is an engineer for a company and travels quite a bit. Back in the day, he did quite a bit of electrical work on a few flips I did. I talked to him a few months ago, but it was more about Real Estate. I think the longest he's ever owned a truck was a 24v / Nv4500 he bought from me. I think I remember him telling me he finally went common-rail.... Hell, he may have even gone 6.7, don't remember what he told me he bought....

    That Volvo 240 story is funny as he was also into some very specific cars.

    I do not claim to be a technical guy with CTDs (just owned them and drove them ) , but I think your mod list is spot-on for a 12v. I'm definitely not the most technical when sizing compounds, but I do like that twin set-up.

    I'll also extend my disclaimer of not being a P-pump expert. So, with the AFC diaphram reversal, are you referencing reversing the washers with the mod described below?

    Thanks and yes to the AFC mods.

    Though after a long phone conversation I believe I am going to install an AFC Live setup and forget about all the hacks. Being able to adjust everything on the fly will help greatly when it comes time for emissions each year.

    And I don't actually think my turbo is blown. Still having some sort of a fuel issue. Have all new fuel lines (supply and return) to get rid of all the multiple connections. And need to swap out the overflow valve. I never did as the pump will need to move a bit in order to get it out.

    Still think I am going to go ahead and buy the new turbo anyway as an extra grand will give me more peace of mind.

    Need to make time and room to start the mods. I am getting all excited again.

    That has happened to me a few times. Happens enough that Longmont has a phone line just for that. Your provider may as well. In my case, the recording asked me to leave a message with my address and what was forgotten (trash, recycling, or compost) and to make sure that bin is then out on the curb/alley 24 hours after. Pretty simple and easy to deal with.

    It's tough for me to complain about my sanitation guys.... They pick up everything. I bring home boxes of trash from flips, put out tree branches, you name it. I always try to catch them around Christmas to give them a nice cash tip.

    With the constant diminishing # of loons, there will be a day when the Fringe exists no more. I wonder how long it will take the final 2 participants to realize they can stop posting here and should just start texting each other.

    I hope wulf and cc have each other's phone numbers ....

    Don't really do the Netflix thing, but I have many useless channels on dish network, so I'd like to see a couple of channels dedicated to a couple of my favorite shows.

    Don't they understand how important I am?

    It should work great for you as long as you dont get crazy with it. They like eating axles if you go to oversized tires and if you jump it, you will eventually explode the front diff on landing but if you dont just trash on it, it should work well for you.

    Carry an extra belt.

    I dont see me ever going back to a 4wheeler after getting a SxS.

    Me too, it unfortunately seems to be abandonware

    I ordered a windshield banner in like September. Never came. I emailed Eric a month or so ago and he apologized and said he hadn't sent it yet but that he would get it out ASAP.

    Still hasn't shown up.

    I can understand why people go on certain reality shows... game shows pay cash and prizes, go on The Amazing Race and you win cash, go on the Bachelor and you may find love....

    How in the world did the Discovery channel convince people that the show Naked and Afraid was a good idea? What's the upside?

    and why are those people not responding to my applications to be on the show?
