Default Justin has a new truck!

I just bought a 1988 X-tra Cab 3.0 liter! It has a pretty weak engine in it and the fuel pump just went out on it. BUT its clean with very minimal rust and easily fixable. It will be getting my 3.4 Supercharged V-6 along with all the suspension and lift from my Red Pick-up (well suspension is an "eventually" with Ashley's school loans looming overhead)

I'll post pics when I can.

-P.S. Where can I find Downey exhaust stuff? or 3.4 conversion parts now that Mike is no longer in business.

Awesome Justin!

Talk to Brian about the 3.4 stuff, he's been helping others out around the area.

Downey is no more.
Congrats! You got a second chance at an uber clean truck, and much kewler!
So you liberated it from Don, eh? Fuel pump did the trick?

Let me know if you want 'help'. If you can call fatherly assistance 'help'.

Even if he would, I wouldn't let him - we like you too much!
A 3.0 swap is all the work of a 3.4, with none of the benefit.

But then it does go with the 3.0 qualities: all the power of a 4-cylinder, all the mileage of a poorly tuned 454.

You want the 2.7 I-4. Mucho better and easier.

Ya I kinda feel bad. I've talked to him a few times, but I've already referred a friend to him for a 3.4 swap. I don't know if he wants to take on that much. It kinda sounds like his plate might be too full for my friends truck.

WHICH BTW my friend Ben Biehl picked up an '89 3.0liter for $500! ANd the body is CLEAN!!! No rust!!!

Oh do y'all think $500 for Downey headers and a 2001 Taco M/T ecu Shipped is a good deal?
