I can't answer your question, but I am wondering about the condition of the pistons after slapping valves. If there are scars on the piston heads, those scars could create hot spots that may lead to...

Do you think that just because the clutch is disengaged that there is no drag on the engine? Go pop the hood on your truck and give the mech fan a spin and come tell us how many revolutions it made....

Yes.

Pull both valve covers and visually examine for bent pushrods, broken springs and/or sludge. Wiggle each rocker by hand to see how tight. If you find an excessively loose one, find out why.

I wonder if the '14 PCM will work in the '15. What PCM is Diablo selling for $1000? Couldn't you go to the local boneyard and get a '12-'14 PCM and then tune it?

Reddish/purple is a sign of overheating. Check that that caliper is not hanging up (not releasing or releasing slowly) and dragging on the rotor.

I normally got from 16-18 MPG on the 8 hour monthly drive to SE Louisiana from East Texas. It went down quite a bit when they raised the speed limit to 75 MPH though and now is routinely mid-15 to...

CAI and catch-can can be done yourself. I would do catch-can first (and I did on mine) because it is relatively inexpensive and will keep your engine happy later on. I haven't priced CAI in a few...

Valve clatter is not a symptom of a cracked head. Unless your head is cracked there is no need to replace it. Same is true for the block.

The valve clatter could be bent pushrods or collapsed...

Temp gauge stays just a tick over the 1/4 mark with the 180* t-stat where the 205* stock stayed just a tick below 1/2.
