    although dangerous... try running with no, or little antifreeze and see if the gauge goes up

  28. New Headlights

    the links dont work
  29. Uh oops....

    Correct, but that means a smaller turbo which = less power.This is why on the 6.4L Diesel theres 2 turbos, back to back, small to big, smaller one spools faster and keeps the larger one spooled with limited if not no lag.
  30. Uh oops....

    Exactly, SC is INSTANT power, with a turbo, 99% of the time there is lag.. theres more things that can wrong with a turbo as well such as turbo seals etc.
