Well i havnt posted here for awhile due to not having much to say about my 6.4 but i finally started my build today. My truck is a 08 f-250 fX4 ccsb. I have been planning this build for over a year and a half. I decided that i would use the sct itsx with an ipad and erics tunes for my programmer and for that i made a fiberglass center console that goes from the stock console and flows to the bottom of the dash that i will wrap in the black leather like the interior. Now for the really good stuff. Im going to install an AFE Pro 5r, flo pro 5 inch exhaust straight pipe with a black mbrp 6 inch tip, Air Dog 165, Elite 60 hp nozzles, Elite ported fuel rails, Elite h-11 head studs, Elite egr delete with wastegate, cfm intake elbow, Elite cold side pipe, Elite transmission with their heavy duty kit and billet input shaft, Suncoast tq converter, and ouo fixed traction bars. Im not going to mod the pump since i think it will run the 60's just fine with a lower pw tune. Im also doing all of this build cab on. Of course with my luck within the first 30 minutes of starting i snapped the damn plastic tube that runs across the engine for the heater on the pass side (hopefully it isnt too expensive). Ive been running my truck stock the entire time i have owned it and now i cant wait to actually feel the power these engines can put down. Im sure im forgetting something that im installing but it is quite the build and very easy to forget an item or two. Im a diesel mechanic by trade so this shouldnt be to difficult for me to accomplish but if someone has any tricks that make it easier or possibly some caution notes that would be great.

Why are you doing nozzles before turbos?

Just because im already in there and i was going to do ported rails anyways. Also they are significantly cheaper then turbos.

What about the ipad deal. I saw it when it was released to be released but never heard anything else out of it? Is it out?

Could you post pics of your console build with the Ipad? I am very interested in integrating a I-pad to run all the media through my truck. Are you going to run a wireless network so it can be controlled throughout the vehicle? Check this setup out

I will get pics of the console tomorrow. It isnt covered in leather yet but you can see how it sets.

Sounds like a really good build. Looking forward to hearing the progress and the end results. That seems like a lot of work with the cab on. Wouldn't it be much easier cab off? Certainly a lot more working room.

Keep us posted with your progress and pics please.

I wish I would have decided to use our lift on this job. But in my opinion it wasn't too awful bad. As of last night all of the difficult items were welded installed and complete. I just have a few minor items to do. Also I think that the trans being out of the truck helped tremendously.
