Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Had to work in the AM, so no partying for this guy. Instead got a chance to finally put in the spacers, trac bar, disco's, and notch the fuel tank skid. Everything went pretty smooth, the only thing that really hung me up was setting up the trac bar just right. The rear Rustys spacers also have a nice chamfer in them that stop the spacers from sitting flush in the spring perch. Guess that's where they got the extra .5". Just had to grind that down and it was good to go. All said and done it measures 23" hub to fender all around and about 38-3/16" ground to fender. Drives great, although the esp is a bit moe sensitive in quick u turns.

I'd maybe stay stock height then. The 20's would look good on stock height I would think.

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Got around to wrapping my Volant intake tube with some thermowrap. Anybody running a Volant I would strongly suggest doing this. Seeing as how the intake tube sits on the upper radiator hose the intake tube gets incredibly hot, thus making the IAT sensor read hot, resulting in pulled timing. Immediately I noticed the pfffbbt noise under load I thought was from an exhaust leak was actually from the intake tube. I've heard this can be caused by the egr being more audible through an aftermarket CAI. The thermowrap helped insulate the noise and its barely audible now. IAT's are greatly reduced and I can actually hold onto the tube without burning my hand after running the jeep. Feels a bit more peppy but could be in my head right now.

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Thats weird that they would design it like that, seeing as the whole point of a CAI is COLD Air Intake.... lol

True but there is no Volant setup for a 5.7 WK. This is a setup for an SRT8.

Re: "Oscar the grouch" build thread

Finally got around to changing the TC fluid and adding the 4xguard belly skid after changing out the drivers front half shaft. I must've knicked the cv boot when I put the spacers in last week, as grease was flung everywhere from the cv boot. I bought a new axle and plan on replacing the boot on the stock one to keep as a spare. The 245 is by far the worst tcase to fill. NP231/242/249/NV247, were all a cinch. This one no matter how you held the fill tube it wanted to squirt back out the hole. Finally finnessed enough in there after wasting about a half quart lol.
