First off, what are your plans for the truck once you have it built? This question will help you decide on what injectors and turbo or turbos to use. Keep your eyes peeled, everyonce and a while you will come upon a good deal on 6.0L on craigslist or eBay.

Re: built 6.0

If the truck is going to be a DD, then 600-700 horsepower is going to be tough. For injectors, you would want something in the 225cc range and for a turbo a 66mm should put you close to your 600hp goal but be hard to DD. On the other side, you could spring for some twins and have a good toy and DD. Check out Trusted performance, they have some awesome products coming out soon that may help you reach your goal.

Re: built 6.0

if your only looking for that hp range i would save the 4 grand to do rods and balance the motor and put it in other stuff..
I would do a set of 225s and a 66mm turbo..completely streetable and fun to play with...
i dont drag race so have no numbers there
but the mud drag i ran in last year i won by nearly .5 seconds
and competed or won in all the pulls i atended last year.
