I don't have a trailer hitch on the truck. Can I pick one up there?

Your going to need a class 3 hitch. Do you have a hitch on the truck? You will need a 2". If you have that then it'* a mater of picking up the receiver and a ball. You will also need the plug for the lights.

That'* a class 3 hitch, and looks like you have electrical, so your set there. You will need a 2" receiver and a ball. Call to get the correct size, but I'm sure it will be 2". 1 7/8" is for smaller trailers, and 2 5/16" is for larger trailers, like 10k-30k weight. You should be able to buy that for about $20-$25 at a place like Menards.

Weight limit LOL. I rented one to haul my jag around a couple years back in California. They said it had a weight limit. I just shrugged it off and loaded up the jag and towed it away. That'* a 4100lb car.

Jon, i can think of at least a few boosted 3500s on 60V6, and even boosted 3400/3500 hybrids, and then ForcedFirebird even has his gen 1 3.4 block with 3500 heads that he was running for a while, he has since upgraded to a full 3500 though....

they can handle boost, but something is odd with your motor.

you said you had 5* of retard when in boost compared to the previous killer tune? that alone should have dropped the pressure the headgasket sees during a combustion event enough to rule out that being the problem...

I know. But this also wasn't the same type of BOOM as last time. I didn't even notice it happened right away. There'* definitely a problem though. I'm looking forward to tearing into and finding out just what the hell happened.

Compression test would be my first step. I'm leaning towards blowing a hole in a piston simply because your burning oil, or perhaps a bent valve. Either way, no compression. A blown cylinder to cylinder head gasket will have no compression in both cylinders.

I also think I may have blown apart a piston. Time will tell.
