Yes!

Any other little niggles besides the little bit of oil?

The small bit of oil snot out the turbo clip was fixed by rotating the scroll clip a few degrees so the open end is not at the bottom.

Things are working well. I have one minor fault code that I am working through. Sounds like Tony knows exactly what it is. Pretty happy now with the whole guage setup. I replaced my analog boost guage with a small round murphy guage that displays a one liner for all engine vitals I wish to monitor and also shows me fault codes on the engine. So I can run with my analog style guages all on J1939 without having MFD turned on. Or I can turn on MFD and have engine vitals there as well.

Waiting for a special Seatalk to NMEA2000 cable. Once I get that, I'll empty the tank, get the sender working and fill her so we finally get an idea how much tank I ended up with.

Tank came in at 60 gallons + a few gal reserve

420lbs of fuel and 200 nm range

I love the Offshore Systems NMEA200 sender. Just plug it into NMEA2000. It also detects water in the bottom of your fuel tank. If it detects water, it cycles between 0% and 100% as an indication.

Now I'm getting fuel burn rates and nmpg and range calculations on my MFD.

nmpg is a solid 3-3.7 nmpg @28-32kts depending on weight and sea state

This was such a great build. Really showing how to do things nicely.

I will definitely have to go this route with the whole powerplant at some stage. Probably start surfing around for motors whenever the house is done.

I know it has long gone to the boatyard in the sky, but would you do anything different in retrospect? I keep wondering about keeping weight down, but that is a bit silly when starting with a cummins as the basis for the thing.
