So earlier today I put her up on the lift for a quick checkup, a full fluid PM and to pull a few mods cause I have a 1200 mile trip back to NYC in the morning
Yanked out the lightweight pulley and replaced it with the original....
Pulled the silly fart pipe muffler and replaced it with the original....
Attempted to pull the CAI to replace it with the factory air box, but unfortunately, it has an aftermarket intake that kinda puts the throttle body in the way of the plumbing, so it looks like I'm stuck with it cause I didn't get the OEM manifold
Still, the difference in sound with the factory muffler is night and day
Not sure what I'll be doing with the stock steelies....
At first, I wanted to swap the tires back to the steelies and sell the current wheels, but then the thought of how fast Toyo steelies rust in the Winter came to mind
I figured I could just keep them as a spare set and throw some Blizzaks on them for the Winter, but then again when the big snow hits, I'll be chillin in my Land Cruiser
I'll most likley just throw all the leftover parts on CL for the locals and let my shop sort it out....
curious why you pulled out the lightweight pulley? could you tell any difference between that one and the stock one?
A lightweight crank pulley is one of the worst things you can do for your engine
Sure, you might free up a few hp at best, but by removing the harmonic balancer, you reduce the longevity of your engine significantly due to excess torsional vibrations that would otherwise be reduced/eliminated
