TD52 is on a distinguished road
Default going to ask what you think

I have a cam plate .. but was going to go up a bit on one
I did the spring washer mod so I can run at 3200 rpm ... changed the rack plug .. a 10 dollar item .. have a fass system and replace the OEM with it .. a easy change
put in some Marine injectors I got from my Son-in-law .. that were new for free
updated the size of the fuel lines to the injectors .. again from my son-in-law
So here is the question .. I was going to remove the cam plate all together .. have done a lot of reading on this .. and how to add a valet switch to use when you do not need all the fuel when you drive down the HWY .. it also suppose to get better millage and run better .. also I got a 66cc turbo .. for a very cheap price .. again from my son-in-law ...and my exhaust was put in 4" from the turbo back for free .. because I bought a storage building and it had a bunch of truck and car parts .. and I got the storage for 5 buck .. when they opened the door .. it had only boxes of cloths in the front and you could not see in the back ..so no one bid on it .. so I did for 5 and was going to donate the cloths and get a tax credit .. when I pulled out the boxes I found all kinds of new in the box parts I have done a lot trading for what I want
So I would like to know if anyone has done this and are happy with the mod ... it is a lot cheaper than buying a new cam plate that will do the same job
could this post be moved to the diesel area .. not the 5.9 v8 ... my mistake sorry
