this is a 1985 chevy K20 2500 4x4. this was a truck we were building here at precision diesel service inc. for an employee but he did not have the time or money to finish it, so i bought it from him incomplete. i will list everything i can possibly remember but im sure i will miss a thing or two. to start with when we got this truck it already had the tires, rims, 4" BDS suspension lift on it. the previous owner had 5-6000 miles on that stuff. the rest of this list is all been done this winter and has less than 300 miles on all of it. welded in new cab corners (full length long ones) inner and outer rocker panels, floor pans, front fenders, doors, bed was all redone prior to paint, tailgate was taken off a 60,000 mile rust free truck, all exterior lights- headlights, turn signals, marker lights, tail lights and put new bulbs in all exterior lights, interior lights, dash, 4x4 shifter bulb, ashtray bulb, dome light bulb. new tonneau cover, fuel tank, rear disk brake conversion, exhaust, all wiring was cut out of engine compartment, and cab and wired specifically for the conversion. has new hood liner insulation. we took the time to reroute the hood latch cable so its completly hidden and not running across the radiator support and inner fender area. motor is a 1994 12 valve p-pumped cummins that had 54,000 original miles on it. we pulled it apart had the head redone completely, all new bearings, seals, gaskets, pistons, rings, rist pins, and cam. there was absolutly no need to do anything to the motor but when we were building it, he wanted it to be all new everything so the truck would last the rest of his life. turbo is an hx-35 and makes 35 psi of boost. the injectors are 200 hp over stock injectors and the pump is an industrial p-pump. all intake/turbo tubes were made here, vacuum/power steering pump is a 93 dodge diesel factory style pump. intercooler and radiator are both 1994 dodge 3500 factory, with two 20" electric fans on an adjustable thermostat. has autometer procomp boost, egt, and trans temp gauge. all the factory gauges work properly, even the speedometer is acurite according to gps. the transmission is an electronic 4L80E automatic with overdrive. it is controlled by a fully tuneable/adjustable optishift trans controller computer from bauman electronics. the software is all included with the truck and i will teach you to use it so you can make changes if you want. the truck runs and drives like it was built this way from the factory. its very smooth and just a ton of power and fun to drive. from what i have figured so far its getting around 20 mpg maybe higher. the seats are out of a 1994 dodge 3500. the carpet is all new factory fit and molded so it looks very nice. interior is mostly black with some charcoal gray. exterior paint is 2012 cadillac gunmetal gray. this is an amazing color and just really stands out in the sun. exhaust is 4" all the way out to a stainless 5" tip. battery trays are custom made aluminum to fit two large 880 cca napa 75 month batteries but at the same time keep them very low and out of sight in engine compartment. all wiring on motor is laid out to be as hidden as possible on the motor and then hidden in the wiper cowl to cross over to driver side where it connects to a factory bulk head connecter. this truck was built to be 100% driveable anywhere at any time and is just that. it could be a show truck although its not perfect by any means it is absolutly beautiful and turns heads everywhere you take it. the injector and pump set up make it idle very rough as if its a pulling truck but as soon as you bring it off idle it smooths right out, and like i said it is 100% driveable. i have drove it back and forth to work and this past weekend ran it down the highway at 75 mph without a single issue. at 55 mph its running about 6 psi of boost 600* on egt and trans temp is about 150*. i currently only have less than 300 miles on it but will try to have 500-600 miles on it before its sold, but i refuse to drive it in the rain or with any salt/sand on the road. so its been hard to get it out with the weather changing so drastically here in indiana. forecast does not look good this week so its parked in the back of the heated shop for now. im sure i have missed several things so call me with any questions or offers. this truck was professionally built right here at Precision Diesel Service inc. in goshen indiana. We are a company that specializes in cummins conversions and currently have four trucks in process as i write this, so i assure you this is done right. i am interested in trades for newer diesel trucks, mostly looking for 2005-2007 ford 6.0L powerstroke 4x4 trucks. call will at 574-361-0449. i dont have a lot of time to respond to a million emails so call or text for fastest response.

The 2014 Chevrolet SS will make its racing debut for the 2013 Daytona 500, but the production version of the car will get its official unveiling on February 16 in Daytona, a week before The Great American Race. According to a report by Automotive News, the reveal has been confirmed by Jim Campbell, Chevy's US vice president of performance and motorsports. With the departure of the Dodge Charger, the new Chevrolet racecar will be the only competitor to feature a V8, rear-wheel-drive layout in both street and NASCAR form.

NASCAR fans will be able to see the new fullsize performance-oriented sedan on display in the festivities leading up to the Daytona 500, but the car won't go on sale until later in the year. The Australian-built Chevy SS will be a low-volume performance model, and it will be priced above the 2014 Impala, which starts at $27,535.
Kenneth Feinberg, the man in charge of the General Motors compensation fund dealing with the its widespread ignition switch woes, has issued an informal, two-letter response to the plaintiffs in more than 70 lawsuits seeking redress for lost resale value of their Cobalts: "No." The cases were recently combined into one, but Feinberg told The Detroit News that the fund will deal "only with death and physical injury claims," and that "perceived diminished value" will get no consideration.

ALG, the firm specializing in establishing residual values, determined that Cobalt owners had lost $300 compared to the segment competition and doesn't envision any long-term effects from the recall situation. Feinberg's statement comes in advance of public details on how the compensation fund will work and adheres to GM's long-held position on the matter. The company has already asked a judge to throw out such suits using the pre-bankruptcy defense, even as it stopped using that defense in cases of injury and death.
With plenty of potential gain from the GM suit, however, don't expect the plaintiffs to give up yet. When Toyota was sued for the same reason during the unintended acceleration debacle, it eventually settled the case for between $1 billion and $1.4 billion just to get it over with. Since the 85 law firms involved in the Toyota litigation took home more than $250 million of that total, we shouldn't expect the attorneys to give up on a GM payout, either.
2010 Buick Enclave - Click above for high-res image gallery
The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
