We will be running all the evap stuff (minus the charcoal canister) I'm still trying to figure out how to run the tank vents to the evap, but we'll figure it out. I'm going for no codes, so we will see how we do.

I'll be sure and post a how-to when we get it done.

i wanted to put a cell in mine but everyone says it throws codes unless you reprogram the computer.there are about 30 guys on pirate looking for the same info. let us know what you figure out. that will be some very helpful info. i took mine all out of the well then remounted inside.there was a thread that someone did the same as you with the canister.it through codes and ran like crap.if you look up brink on pirate, he tried a bunch of diffrent stuff with it.alot of good info there. good luck.
cant wait to see this thing done..brad is a great guy,so looking forward to this build.

Have you guys used the currie joints before? I've heard some comments about how the threads are not so good in them and a PITA to assmeble. Wondering about your experience.

Looking forward to see the build.

the shank threads are perfect on mine.... I wouldnt trust anything less than a 1.25" on the lower and .75" on the upper for threads when using johnny joints... chromoly heims are a little different. the currie joints assemble with a snap ring and they take some (quite a bit unless you are using a press) preload to get them compressed enough to get the snap ring in. this is the main difference between johnny joints and most other rebuildable joints.

the build looks good, I cant wait to see how it turns out :thumb:
