It seems like every single person on this site is running big sticks/turbos etc.. its finally gotten the best of me, and i now want to be in the cool kids club
My truck is nearing 225k and even though it still runs amazing for that many miles i can tell its starting to get tired. Im looking into doing a 475-500hp solid, yet the most reliable build i can do. Studs, Rods, RR, full fuel system, adrenaline, 238/100's, and all neccesary gauges to monitor everything should get me there. Feel free to add your own advice or suggestions as well. I will be able to do most of the work myself, if not all so keep that in mind as far as labor costs go. Heres my questions:
-With 225k on the clock and the miles ill add before doing the build would it be a better idea to purchase a block from DI or "off the street" and build that one or just save that money for parts and build the current block in the truck now and hope it stays together from the added stress?
-Whats a rough estimate on the money ill need to ask the bank for
to do this build? Not including tranny.
-While the 38r is a proven turbo for this kind of build, id like to run something different as everybody and their momma has a 38r
Maybe a 42r? How's WOP's QSSB?
-Still completley clueless on what fuel system to run. Do any companies offer a FULL SYSTEM? I mean like down to the filter and all. Is it cheaper to piece together a system as far as filters fuel lines etc go?
This build wont be happening tomorrow as i've still got 2 years left of school to get through but im staring to get ideas together now. Im sure there will be alot more questions added as this thread goes along.
Thank you all for your help
