jage, whats a betty ford type top? did a search and all that comes up is your post. tried a google search and a smb thread comes up, but doesnt mention anything about a betty ford anything.
gnarvan, ya, ive been lazy. ground has been wet and i havent had the van on a lift yet. i was gonna see if i could grab numbers when i had it aligned today, but something else came up and i cant make my appointment. wifes dad got laid off with the hostess fiasco and weve been clearing out one of the local stores and taking everything to recycle. netted over 800 bucks so far and have a few more loads. gotta grab that jing while we can.
and i agree that being a work truck it didnt see many changes once they got it out in the field.
havent heard one thing back from quigley
was wrenching on van a few daze ago changing out this little guy.
dunno why my camera is close up impared, but changing this out sucked for how easy it looked in the package. i really hope i dont have to spend much time in this bay in the future, lol.
while i was in there, I removed the bafflebox and capped off the tube. found this plastic cap that fit super snug. siliconed it up real good and tightened the clamp just to make sure it wont come loose.
something i havent searched on here yet is intakes. seems like it would be a good improvement, but doesnt look to be shit for room. all i could find outside this site was drop in filters other than some kind of bullydog deal that looked very similar to the stock setup.
also, anyone know for a fact what this deal is? Ive been told its just a high idle for warmup. others have said its pto related, like for a snowplow etc.
again, sorry for the crappy pic. first button says power, second says charge protect, and third says rpm control. its mounted on the floor right next to drivers seat.
it engages automatically when parking brake is set and just bumps up the idle. if you just touch the brake pedal, it disengages it, but re-engages if you dont do anything within 10-15 seconds. if the van is cold, it will shoot the idle up pretty good. it scared me first time cause it shot up pretty fast, and these things dont really rev all that high compared to the 10k redlines i usually play with (really wish it had a tach). i thought maybe it had something to do with the winch that was on this thing at one point.
