The Centaurus Resurrection

Well for those who checked out my introduction post know the backround here somewhat those that haven't are welcome to here (ill add link once forum post count allows me to I guess ,)

I have lazily named this truck the Centaurus as its already got a name tag on it and I don't see many around these days, also it just sounds cool.

Truck: 1996 F350 7.3L 5spd manual 2wd CrewCab Longbox Dually with 330k on the ticker, engine claimed to have only 90k miles on it when I purchased it and it does start and run pretty good.

Goal: Fairly powerful yet reliable daily driver/tow pig/farm rig thinking that 4-450hpish range

Mods currently ordered:
-TS6 box tunes
-4" turbo back
-bronco rear tank
-High Pressure oil cross over
-isspro egt, fuel press, trans temp, boost
-ebpv valve controls
-high torque starter
-6637 air filter

Mods currently in design research phases:
-4 corner air suspension
-intercooler
-homemade efuel system

some immediate issues that need addressed:
-rear fuel tank read wayyyyyyy over fuel all the time even empty and i have not tried the tank selector yet but
hopefully the rear tank swap takes care of the gauge issue may have to replace selector valve
-trans is getting pretty loose but drives as is
-not sure if a/c works yet
-if it has a limited slip rear the clutches need rebuilt (Havent even checked if it has it yet) axle code D5 if that
means anything

wish lists:
-alcoa polish
-sand and re-clear if possible or repaint to original colors (some clear coat peel going on)
- interior repair/replace of everything keeping original to centurion as possible
- ofcource injectors turbos ect ect as time goes on
- 4x4 conversion

Current mods ("additions") I have done:
- group 31 thread post battery conversion
- some francis fiberglass whips (trying to eliminate the rigged up am/fm antenna and better CB range not really a
mod i know haha)
- chrome headache rack (again not really a mod but something i added)
- cooper starfire sf510 on the rear (not happy about it but it NEEDED tires to even drive it home and its what i
could find in correct size and have mounted on a sunday morning and surprisingly they hook pretty good in
snow)

I will be adding and modding these lists as time goes on and always looking for suggestions on a better way to do things. I was getting pretty comfortable in my Cummins game so decided to shake it up and learn something new, some stuff crosses over others do not, ill definitely post some pictures of the beast as i got and when i get a chance to take some the salesman pictures were pretty crappy and we haven't had decent enough weather yet to get a good photo op.

Re: The Centaurus Resurrection

a picture of the offending part is your best friend.
but my guess is going to be key in ignition and door open chime.

Might be the chime module. I think mine might be unplugged to.

Re: The Centaurus Resurrection

The hydra is $300 and the ts6 is $200. The hydra comes with a whole library full of free tunes. The ts6 is outdated and lots of tuners wont burn them anymore. Plus with the hydra they sell a library of full custom tunes for $150 extra so if you upgrade injectors you can just change a tune.
