Re: california model: split shots?

blackcloud -- The easiest way to tell if you have a California emissions truck is by the PCM calibration code. There is no way just by looking at the VIN to determine if the truck came from California. If there is a DSO code on the Vehicle Certification Label, that may help narrow it down.

Re: california model: split shots?

May sound kinda dumb, but I was told that the CA models were the only ones that had the power mirrors on our trucks. I've also heard them referred to as the "California Mirrors". I also know that you can definately tell the CA model by looking at the fuel pump, and if you have the Bosch Fuel Dampner behind your fuel pump preventing you from replacing the fuel pump without removing the turbo and the pedestal, then you have a CA model. Supposedly the CA models were the only ones with the BOSCH dampner.

Re: california model: split shots?

blackcloud -- The Vehicle Certification Label is on the drivers side door; it is the big sticker that has the VIN, axle code, paint code, etc. If there is a DSO code, it would be on the right side of the sticker.

97F250PSD4X4 -- I forgot all about the fuel damper on the California trucks; good call! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Fuel Damper, California Vehicles Only
The fuel damper is located behind the fuel pump and is incorporated to control fuel pulsing.

Fuel Pulse Damper, California Vehicles Only
1 - Fuel Pump Damper (California Only)
2 - Fuel Pump
3 - Fuel Supply Line
4 - Banjo Bolt
5 - Turbo Pedestal O-Ring Seal

Re: california model: split shots?

Personally, I don't believe that the 96 Calif. trucks had the split shot injectors. As to if it was sold in Calif. go to carfax.com and enter the VIN number. Not sure of the cost but you can find out known history of the vehicle including date and where sold.

Re: california model: split shots?

That is ugly. I think I will try to make some inline pulse dampeners to put on each head to fix the pulse problem.

Re: california model: split shots?

I apreciate the offer and I will keep it in mind but I dont know if it will be worth taking the turbo off to put it in or did I hear wrong about that??

I also will have to totally revamp the fuel system to an electric pump if I go with the BDS stealth pump. Gotta save up a lot of coin before I do that though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]
