Well after a long painful, trip from hell to Sheid's so Chris could get some pictures taken for some small diesel mag, looks like it was all worth it in the end cause this was the end result! Congrats buddy!

I promise, next time you get into a magazine, you can steal whatever parts off my rig you would like and we will spend even more time to make it pretty, ok?

Thanks to Mike McGlothlin for shooting my truck! It looks totally awesome! Also thanks to Jake at Irate for helping me afford it and providing me with the right combination of parts.

Right on, love seeing the old 7.3s get some magazine time with more than a gauge install.

Chris have you had it on dyno ?

I tried to dyno it once. Most I got was like 280hp. :hehe: It just doesn't like to dyno. Track time calculators are better real world calculators anyway. Et calculator says 7340# at a 12.689 1/4 mile time (105.6mph) is 589hp at the wheels and 639hp at the crank. The last time it was raced my wife drove. She had a little screw up after the launch so only got a 12.81. However her trap speed was 106.06mph weighing 7410#. (Amy is lighter but all the seats and other stuff were back in. That's 600hp at the wheels and 651hp at the crank. All these were calculated using the Army calculator and a local grain elevator scale. I'm not sure where Mike got 700 at the crank. Makes me look good though! ;)




Does a 12.69 make me the fastest stock block crew cab 7.3? Not trying to toot my own horn or anything. It was brought up and I didn't know. From what I can find I think I am.

Ok. Well what about stock bottom crew cab all fuel?

If not then I'll take the title of fastest 99.5 white 4x4 white crew cab stock bottom end all fuel from Kansas owned by a guy named Chris! Hahaha!
