    More Off-Road Adventures

    Decided to take the T on another little off-road trip to Lazy Springs Park with a few friends. Not much around here to get in to like some of you boys up north, but still had quite a bit of fun.

    Bad News, Good News...

    ​The Bad News:

    So next in the time line of The Duke really pissed me off, and I'm sure many of my fellow enthusiasts feel the same way when something like this happens. Actually I dread things like this happening because of the amount of time and money spent underneath a vehicle to make them unique to us.

    My girlfriend and I went out for breakfast at Cracker Barrel one day and came out to the grill caved in on the drivers side. This is what it looked like after I took the corner piece that broke off. I have no doubt in my mind that it had to be a lifted early 90's Ford pick-up that parked in front of me and probably reversed in to my bumper. No note, no number or anything. Just my poor H3T backed up in the back of the lot and it still got hit. It's tough but it wasn't too bad after the shop took everything apart. The worst part for me was that these were STARR HIDs and they don't make them anymore. Needed new grill, mounting brackets for headlights and fog lights, new headlights, new driver's side fog light, new bumper while we were at it (it was fine, just scuffed), new side marker lights, and a touch-up paint kit on the edge of the hood. Fender was fine luckily, that black spot wasn't a scuff.

    Since the STARR HIDs weren't available anymore, we ordered a new headlight kit from HIDprojectors.com. The 7" Jeep headlight retrofit kit from German at Lased Designs wasn't out at the time, otherwise I would have ordered that because I personally think that they look fantastic.


    The Good News:

    Not long after, I got word that Rancho somehow found 20 of their 4" suspension lift kits sitting in their warehouse sitting brand new in the box and I immediately jumped on it. I've always wanted the kit and felt incredibly lucky to buy a platform that they didn't manufacture a kit for in YEARS and be able to be a part of the small group of people who bought 1 of these 20 inventory slip ups.

    BIG INSTALL WEEKEND! Part 1

    Big install weekend is here. Had a bunch of parts sitting in the garage at the time that I decided to install during a free weekend.

    Without boring you with all of the preliminary steps to get there, here is the money shot


    Name:  teeW0iG.jpg

    This is the Texas Speed Stage II Truck cam. I used the dowel method so I didn't have to pull the heads to install.

    And another view with the socket wrench in the cam bolt hole for more leverage. And you can also see the updated style chain tensioner.

    This is the stock LH8 chain tensioner next to the later LS3 style chain tensioner.

Size:  821.4 KB

    And here is the stock LH8 single bolt cam gear. The new cam (and most aftermarket LS cams) are the 3-bolt design so you will need a new cam timing gear and bolts to install. I used ARP bolts while I was at it.

    New valve seal next to the old one (I ripped the seal while inspecting lol).

Size:  2.50 MB

    I used this cheap valve spring compressor off of Amazon to remove the old springs and install the new ones. And draining all the GM antifreeze from the system and replacing with Redline Water Wetter since the truck doesn't need the antifreeze properties here in FL and the Water Wetter cools much better. Use the same stuff on my turbo mustang.

    BIG INSTALL WEEKEND! Part 2

    Install Weekend Part 2!

    New radiator from ECP.

    Name:  vRsHMat.jpg
Views: 261
Size:  736.9 KB

    This one was kind of a pain but the radiator itself is very nice. All aluminum unit and this puppy is a 2-row rad with 1" tubes. I'm not too sure on the specs of other aftermarket aluminum radiators but I think this might be one of the biggest you can get. See below. Regardless, it is a MUCH better upgrade than the tiny 1 row OEM radiator, and not expensive like some of the other offerings out there.

    Nothing was was wrong with my stock radiator, I just figured that now was the time to upgrade since I had to remove it anyways for the cam install.

    Stock rad is about 1 inch wide.

    Name:  CzmNqcG.jpg
Views: 236
Size:  738.7 KB

    ECP rad is 2 & 3/8ths inches thick, as measured from the side on both. More than twice the size of OEM.

    Here you can see just how beefy it is compared to stock! All that extra cooling capacity!

    And last view vs. OEM from the tops of the radiators. The welded on top end tank is considerably thicker than the rest of the body, more on that later.

    View of the new radiator mock-installed along with a new Alpha cold air intake from Air Doc Intakes and an K&N filter. Some slight trimming to the engine cover is needed if you want to re-use it. Very very minor. In order to run the ECP radiator, you need re-use the side plastic mounting brackets from the OEM rad. Once you remove them, you'll need to dremel out the openings to get the plastic brackets to slide in, it's not perfect.

    Next on the list to install was the Deluxe V8 Dual E-Fan from James @ Supermodulation. Sorry for the horrible pic but it was the only one I took.

    Name:  T93kwGd.jpg
Views: 220
Size:  555.6 KB

    Because the damn radiator is so thick, I wasn't able to install the E-fans right side up due to the rear of the fans hitting the engine pulley & and brackets. So I flipped them upside down and it cleared with an eighth of an inch. The e-fan kit also came with a sensor that goes inline on the coolant hoses to regulate the fans so you don't have to re-pin your engine harness connectors and get a tune for them.

    ​Here is everything installed. ECP 2 3/8" radiator, dual Supermodulation e-fans & Air Docs intake w/ K&N filter. I think came out extremely clean looking!

Size:  2.87 MB


    ​So here's my opinion of the ECP radiator....

    It's a very nice unit and have zero doubt that my cooling capacity has GREATLY increased. Would I recommend this radiator to you? Maybe not unless you are okay with modifying a few things. First off, the damn thing is so thick that I had to push my condenser forward off of it's mounts and make my own. Other than that, you have to shave down the OEM mounts to install in your H3, and also trim the radiator support brace to get it to fit correctly. You may be able to see this on the last photo on the drivers side of the radiator, where I trimmed the metal back about a 1/16th of an inch and painted white to protect from rust, then added a rubber trim piece to prevent metal-to-metal contact. On top of that, if I hadn't purchased the dual e-fan kit, there is no way you can run the stock mechanical fan and radiator shroud, there is simply not enough room.

    TLDR: it's rather involved and not a simple swap. But it looks great and it works great. I've had this radiator on my truck for over a year now and have never had a cooling issue, even when towing the Mustang in the FL heat.

    BIG INSTALL WEEKEND! Part 3

    Install Weekend Part 3!


    Most of you know what this is. Daystar dash panel. Simple install in 30 seconds and looks good imo.

    Next is a nice little mod to the tailgate so removing the tailgate itself is the first step.




    ​And there she is. The tailgate assist is installed.




    Much better.




    Next is a bit more cheap power and sound, so under the truck we go.

    Did a bit of cutting to the stock exhaust...

    And for fun, here is what a untuned cammed Alpha V8 sounds like with just the headers lol.


    T
    As you can see my Alpha has two sets of cats. Here in FL, we don't test for emissions and etc. so the rears went bye-bye, and the fronts had an appointment with a hammer and a pry bar lol.


    Name:  Vrx40En.jpg
Views: 251
Size:  2.68 MB

    After punching out all of the cat material out of the primaries, we bolted them back up to the headers and then welded in a straight section to replace the rear cats. Here's my buddy welding the straight section for me since I have little welding experience.

    Name:  lyQPdhx.jpg
Views: 238
Size:  3.09 MB

    The Duke is all welded up and sounds great! If you're looking to free up some cheap power and pick up some more exhaust notes and can weld a bit, this is an easy way to do it. Made sense for me to do it because I live in Florida and also because I will need a tune anyways for the camshaft swap. But if you don't want to tune your rig, then you can always just cut out the rear cats and be done with it. Removing the front cats will 100% need a tune or you will get the Check Engine light to come on.

    Nice stuff! You sure had alot going on!
    Make sure your radiator isnt moving around to save your efans from hitting the pulleys while driving, it would suck to have the fan pusher into the radiator and ripping a hole in it!
    If you're willing to go another route, a camaro ss/ctsv efan will clear the space between the rad and engine and its the most powerful thing you can get, and easily pcm controlled.
    Obviously with your setup the fans wont run if ac requests it, I highly suggest you repin your pcm esp living in florida you guys get alot of heat, and that way it will run like any stock vehicle and ac wont suffer (unless you add a pusher fan that goes on whenever the compressor kicks in)

    Where is the cam chop video?

    Man it was a long weekend for sure!

    The radiator isn't going anywhere, that thing is SOLID! I may consider the camaro fans in the future, we will see.

    I guess the raw video I uploaded didn't work. It was of the cam with just the headers. I will try to upload that one and the walk-around video with full exhaust either tonight or this weekend.

    And here is how the Duke sounded the next day with the exhaust back on. Stock headers, primary & secondary cat delete, and a 40 series muffler.




    The sound outside the truck is perfect, loud enough that people will deff notice and hear it chop but not so loud that I worry about waking my neighbors or can't cruise comfortably inside the cabin lol.

    Dyno Day!

    Brought The Duke to my buddy's shop to get custom tuned after the camshaft install!

    Performance Cycle and Auto is the name of the shop and it is located in Naples, FL. Brandon Cunningham owns it along with his father and he was the one who tuned it. We used HPTuners software and everything came out quite nicely.

    Here's The Duke all strapped down on the dyno for the second time. Again, the front driveshaft was removed and the transfer case was locked in 4-High in order to make it rear-wheel drive to use the dyno.

    Here's a video of one of the pulls. Only took 4 pulls to get dialed in to where we wanted it to be on the dyno.




    After the final dyno pulls, we went out on the street to perform some drivability tuning and also worked on cam and idle tuning.

    All in all, we gained +51 hp and +29 tq peak numbers. Final figures were 269 hp, 276 tq at the rear wheels, which was exactly the hp increased as advertised by Texas Speed lol.

    At some point in the future, I'll have to record a new video of the cam idle after the tune for you guys, as it is a little more pronounced.

    Drives like stock after the tune, even with the stock converter. And since the cam install, I have only seen a small loss on MPG, 1 MPG less than stock when monitoring before and after.

    Great results! Has the idle speed been raised from 550 rpm (stock). If not and with you already making 90% of max torque at 2500 rpm a higher stalled TC isnt necessary, esp if you plan to tow alot
