Re: Anyone ever build a dt530????

Where are you pulling that they let you use an engine that did not come in your truck originally?

The first question, Is it an E motor or mechanical? The mechanical engines are pretty much like a big 5.9 Cummins 12 valve, and most of the stuff works the same way. E motors use HEUI injectors just like 7.3's, so you'd look for 400/400 injectors, some sort of hpop and a fuel delivery system to keep up, find some custom head studs, some big turbos, and find what breaks, i don't know if the early 530 ecm's accept a 6 position chip like the 466's do. If i was doing a swap I'd do the 466 mechanical, everything you can imagine has been done with them and been built for 4000 hp on alcohol..it

You can pull with a truck with a motor in it that wasn't an option. You have to run in either open or unlimited. Only bad part is that those pulls usually start around midnight or don't run at all around here because it gets too late.

Re: Anyone ever build a dt530????

im saying open or unlimited like same class as the triple turbo fummins we have around. i just forget which class that is. i didn't say it was 2.6 though. just defending myself. youd have to read the rules
