: Hello New to the forum but long time Toyota Guy

08-17-2009, 09:02 PM
Hello, as the title suggests I am new to the forum and happy to see an Indiana Chapter. I own a 96 T100 currenty mostly stock. I do have a Cummins 4bt and a dana 44 to put under the front. I am a Ceritified Expert Toyota Tech, Aircraft Tech, and all around general pain in the ass. Looking forward to talking with all and maybe some fun.

Welcome Josh, I would love to see the cummins project! sounds awesome. Iam in Avon and can show you the ropes regarding TTORA.

meantime jump in with both feet! everyone here is alright (for the most part) just watch out for that Fuod guy, also might watch out for Nwi well Brinner is suspect also, Ron is well...

ha ha! just joking about everyone, but we are really actually a pretty good group to be around. Is the 100 up anre ready for the trails?

Welcome to the club Josh! Certified tech huh, I'm guessing you're going to get hit with questions! :rolleyes:

What part of Indy are you in? I moved down here to Evansville almost 2 years ago from Carmel, and damn am I glad to be out of that town!

Thanks Guys! I am on the south side for now but we are looking to get over to Brownsburg soon. The T is stock and I wont turn down any trails. I am working with one of the engineers from the cummins plant. He has his own machine shop in his basement....gosh I wish I had that kind of money. But anyways we are going to fabricate a direct bolt on plate that retains my 5sp. 4BTs are small engines about the same size as the 3.4 but heavier. If my math is correct I should be around 200hp with a little over 400 lbs of torque with 37 mpg on the highway. Running 35's...

Ya bring on the questions I will help the best I can.

Welcome josh. It's gotta be my cherry that we are poppin the 29th. It might get a lil messy but thats the fun of it. U are more than welcome to get messy with us. And don't worry about that natetru guy. i am trying to ween him off the meth and it is a slow process.
