Great list. So the valve cover leak was the culprit?

or did you also replace the T-stat?

Indeed it was. I had decided to go with a high temp RTV and form a gasket but we all saw how that went.

I took the covers off, cleaned up the surfaces and double checked the torque on th rr's. After everything was good to go I threw on a nice new pair of gaskets that fit like a glove.

Yes the T-stat was changed bout a week ago but whats wierd it was running fine til yesterday when the temp made it passed the halfway point on my temp gauge getting to the 3/4 mark but never made it to red. Hmmmm it never gets passed the halfway point ever. I let it cool down and it seemed great the rest of the night and this morning. IDK we will see.

So how are you planning on wiring in the o2 sensor? I want true duel exhaust on my 96 but was under the understanding that it would require more wiring, at least one more o2 sensor and some computer work.
Will also follow you on your trip through the "wish list" and see what performance you get when you are done. Great work so far. Shaun

Im not sure if we have the same set up.... Exhaust manifolds ,upper 02's each side then precats on each side then lower 02's eachside then "Y" pipe and finally the beast of a "cat" with no sensors after it. Is that what your setup looks like???

Nope mine goes from the exhaust manifolds to the Y pipe then into the cat with an O2 sensor right before the cat then on back. I start out with only one O2.
Still following your work on the truck, great job so far. Shaun

02 sensor after it damn! Its gona throw a code if you remove it. There are some threads that talk about how to fool your pcm into believing you gota 02 but honestly going with a freeflow or hiflow however you want to call it would be better.

BTW i ended up finally going back to my 275/ 55/29 pirelli scorpions and removing the leveling kit. Damn it handles better!
