Talking All the parts are almost here...

I can at least start to pull the engine out of the truck on Sunday or Monday.

Elite had the pistons delivered on Friday, and the wife and I ran down and picked them up, along with the other parts that were already waiting for me.

Hopefully by Monday afternoon, or Tuesday, I can take the block down to the machine shop to have it bored out, and honed to the pistons. Then the shop will send the rotating assembly out to be re-balanced, and sent back.

By then, the rest of the internal, and external "Additions" should be here, and by the end of May, I should have a Trusted Performance twin turbo'd 6.0L

Re: All the parts are almost here...

Yeah, I pretty much document everything with photo's.

I'm getting real excited, hopefully we hit the numbers that we think it should...and it can still be driven everyday, and still pull a 8500 pound trailer.

Re: All the parts are almost here...

The truck ran a 12.93 @ 103.5mph with 225's, and a 66mm. (Fuel only. The calculators put that as about 640 hp at the flywheel, 585 hp at the wheels.)

Should see 700ish. It may make more, but if I say 1000, and it's only 750, then some look at that as a failure.

Re: All the parts are almost here...

Damn thats awesome! Theres nothing wrong with having high hopes though. I would love for my ole' 7.3 to be around 550. But it will be awhile before that happens. Good luck with the truck man!

Yes....alot more fuel. Heads...I'm gonna see how these look...just gonna put the new springs on, and prolly just "touch" the seats, as they were multi-angled last time. (Along with all hardened seats installed in the exhaust seats.)

Same shop that did it the last time. They are in Lethbridge. (Can't think of their name right now though.)

The old injectors are already sold. The Trusted Performance 64mm is gonna be part of the new twins.
