School Project help

At my Community College we are putting a 6.0 into a 96 Ranger to go drag racing with. After it get's studded and deleted, what would you do to this engine and why?

It's an esoteric question, but it's also part of my project, so i need some help!

I really need help with the specific parts, as in EXACTLY what turbo, not just "throw some compounds on it"

I have no idea what works for a 6.0 and I'm a little out of my depth as far as diesel performance goes.

Because a 6.0 and 5r110 was donated, so changing engines isn't going to happen.

Re: School Project help

The first coast truck and Tim's deranged should give you plenty of ideas.

Any power number or time goals you are shooting for??

Lots will depend on budget, but sct with a raqce file and ficm tuning, then maybe an 03 turbo stock injectors and some nitrous should move it pretty good for fairly cheap without doing injectors bigger turbo and a fuel system.

I'm looking those trucks up now.

As far as goals, the school has an electric dragster that missed the MPH world record by 6, a 10 sec E85 stang, so... I would say ten's would probably impress people sufficiently.

honestly, i don't know the budget, I do know the part's will be donated, my instructer just asked me to start researching as far as turbo upgrades, etc.
