Got some stuff knocked out! Removed the vacuum pump and wastegate, replaced with a spool stick from Leroy; I've got his boost bolt and I'm waiting for a gauge to get here so I can see what kind of boost I'll be pushing, last thing I want to do is finally get this truck on the road just to melt it down.
Pulled the alternator off and I'm going to take it to my local NAPA to test it, it's pretty dingy looking so I figured better to get it checked while the truck is still down. Also got the PMD mounted in a mocked up position where I think it'll be best protected from heat
Installed a driver's side battery tray so I don't have to worry about the battery flopping around unsecured, waiting on cables from @5vortec7
