Few questions

So I think I will have my ford 6oh sold here fairly soon and found a nice dodge.

It is completely stock and I had a few questions, still trying to learn as much as I can.

Will the sport head lights work on a truck that is a non sport model?

Do these truck come with a factory limited slip or posi?

And what is the maximum boost on these trucks, i ask this because i want to get the proper range boost pressure gauge.

Thank you
Steve

limited slip came with the 4.10 gear ratio not the 3.56 unless it was ordered with the 3.56 limited slip. the most boost I could get when it was stock was 25lbs. head lights where the same.

Headlights on the 99+ Sports are differnet, however 94-98 Sports are the same...Its the same with the bumper and grilles...you can take a 98 Sport Grille and it will direct bolt perfect fit on say a 01, but if you take a 01 Sport Grille it will not fit the same b/c of the difference in headlights and bumper..

As for boost stock head bolts can hold 55psi, if your constantly hitting 55+ then she probably wont hold that long...If your going on a Stock Turbo the 35 is the max that is going to help you...everything after that is just hot air blowing...

I just wanted to make sure I got the right isspro gauge ordered!

As far as the head lights, I just liked the short head light lens because its clear. Can i transfer it to this truck because its an 02 non sport.

When my post gets put back EXACTLY where and as it was.......perhaps I'll be back. After all of my previous posts being trash canned after the server hacking, I am NOT real happy about having even more posts deleted, "lost" or whatever. I spent over an hour posting a LOT of information, web links and pictures covering the converting non-sport trucks to sport headlights.

This is in NO way directed at Mike. Mike has done an OUTSTANDING job as moderator here.

just a quick thought here... are you going to add a chip/programmer to the truck? If so I would just get a edge juice with attitude and be money ahead by the time your done, and also less work installing it all. But thats just my opinion. I would say don't let the trans get much over the 220 range. But the dummy light in the dash comes on at 250.. I know this because I had a few tranny issues... Hope this helps.

01 quad cab 4x4, edge drag comp, 4" exhaust, fass 150, 250 ddps, Jefferson State compounds 683hp so vp 11.91. AMSOIL front to rear. now back to stock 95 fummins in the works
