Need to plumb up the intercooler again after pressure testing that system. Bit of a lower pulley wobble (hopefully just install or shim of some sort) and need to revise tune. Also has a nasty manifold exhaust leak.. Tons of money spent and it's still not done. FML. Maybe throwing more money at it will get it motivated.
I believe your “wobble” is caused by a centering ring that metco was happy to supply to me as long as it’s a metco lower hub. The hubs ID is larger than the stock Marauder cranks OD. Relief is needed in the back of the hub to accommodate the spacer. They offered to machine my hub when I called them. Great people over there.

I have a DSS forged crank now. That is interesting. I'm going to take it all apart and see what I find this weekend. Hopefully they just need locktite and maybe some lock washers. Thanks for the headsup

Not sure, but DTR talk will probably will be the longest conversation known to man.
