Mark will chime in Im sure. Hes the transmission expert. I would remove the Diablo as the first step. Just putting it to stock does not stop it from piggy backing the signal. A lot of cheap tuners...

My plenums are a high pressure aluminum casting. Like a boat prop. They were cast off of 3D printings I designed and printed myself. Friends of mine own a prop shop and done the castings for me.

Im thinking something other than boost , like a cracked tip or two. No boost means a crap load of smoke, no way around it, so it would be totally obvious. Cracked tip would smoke too but less under...

Also, if yours came with no pulley, like mine did, on my truck I mean. THen that means you put the pulley on it. If you over tighten the nut, you ruin the bearings.

Maybe the UVCH, or plug to it? Make sure to put 8 back were it belongs if those are stock injectors. You'll notice it has a different code.

I got the foil on the drivers side one still. A lot of guys remove it cause it looks crappy. It helps a bit cooling, or more holding temp.

I don't see anything wrong with the temperature or the leak down. Fuel makes boost, so if your boosting, your producing heat. You said under load and good boost, so 1000 is totally normal. 1250 is...

Im loyal to Riffraff. Built my engine with them. All those parts sound great. Bit big an exhaust for those little shots, but it will sound great. 4" would be better for performance.
