Bought a $600 parts 5.9. Most of the interior is in incredible shape, going to be swapping a few bits into my 5.9 and selling off some other parts and then selling/scrapping the shell.

Fuel pressure was like 2 weeks, senders started pissing gas all over under the hood, real nice. Afr might still work but I unhooked it because it looked like cherries in my mirror with it bouncing from red to blue lights constantly. Boost gauge quit within a couple months. Personally I love autometer, but if you have a 96 or newer buy a Garmin and ecoroute.
