If it were me I would do intake, exhaust, 6.0 TC, and an EGT gauge.

I don't think it's a warp as much as the contour of the pan since mine has it too (if it's at the bottom of the adapter).

I just did this a couple of weeks ago and don't remember any mention of...

The adapter is pretty thick and there's a considerable amount of flange inside the pan to seat it (see picture).

Even if you could get something in there to cut it there's no way to prevent a...

I installed AMP Research running boards on my dad's Chevy. Each board was good for 750lbs of load when extended.

I rebuilt mine with the 270 degree bearing. If it was good enough for Garrett to use in the turbo (and their rebuild kit) then it is good enough for me.

I started hemorrhaging oil recently from the oil dipstick adapter...to the tune of 2 gallons in 20 miles.

You should be able to put some channel locks on that big nut to turn it. My adapter was...

When I rebuilt my turbo I used the Garrett rebuild kit with the 270 degree bearing and the Riffraff billet wheel. Runs great and cured my surge.

I don't think the Donaldson will keep up with the 180cc injectors. I ditched my intake for an S&B because I needed more airlfow for my 160cc injectors.

Yes the MX supports CAN.

I was only speaking to the reason(s) I chose the LX over the MX. I only use this on my truck so have no need for any protocols other than J1850 PWM.

New to the Forum

I signed up for a list of forums when I bought my 250 over 10 years ago. I stayed active in one but have used info from most of them and am looking to pay it forward where I can.
