when my friend did the pulley swap for more boost apparently the blower gets hot enough that it kinda roasts the under hood blanket thing. he looked into it and there were all these expensive solutions so he goes "melted blanket. check" *closes hood* and ran it like that for 2+ years

Yeh, that's the cost of smaller pulley, lots of heat.

My 2003 Crew Cab SC long bed 2wd weighed 5220 according to Edmunds. I imagine you'll notice a bit more pep than I did lol.

Does anyone have any experience or know how much work you have to do to upgrade the VG30i intake to the VG30E intake?

It would require replacing the upper and lower manifolds, injectors, ecm and wiring harnes. It will involve a lot of wiring since the VG30i has 2 injectors that fire at the same time versus mpfi 6 injectors that fire sequentially. You would be on the right track if you had a parts truck and some time to sort it all out.

I feared the wiring harness would have to be re-done. Barring the harness, it would've been a relatively easy process it sounds. But I guess TBI is better than a carburetor haha.

I personally don't think re-doing the harness is worth the ~10 hp/ftlb torque is worth the work of uncovering it all. If I had boo-gobs of time sure though.

Thanks!
