Mark, that is looking really good! With the custom cam it should be a beast. When do you think you will be up and running?
I should have the engine in my hands by the end of the week ... I could not be any more excited if it weren't for the birth of my children this would be Tops on my list.:dance:

Finally its up and running.... With some borrowed parts and minus the turbo for now. Thank you Stu and Greg this never would have happened this soon. Tomorrow the flat bed takes it to the transmission shop for a tranny relearn. And to make matters even worse I am moving on Thursday! But very happy to have it running!:dance:

I've been working on the fuel system. Followed mostly the build from Keith's​ post with the exception I elected you put the return into the center of the fuel module rather than your drill hole in my gas tank. As you can see I filled the top of the upper half of the module with epoxy that makes​​ it smooth & flat. I am using a walbro fuel pump 450. an - 6 with push lock fittings rubber fuel injection hose rated 300 PSI I wrapped with a special heavy duty plastic to protect the fuel lines.

Mark, it's a good looking setup. The fitting is that for crank ventilation?
It can be...... I have a vacuum black/ manifold I'm going to plug into it.

Hey Mark,
Just an FYI, our intakes won't hold much past 12 lbs. I believe. Keith would know, as he blew is apart. You may need to look into a different one now instead of waiting to find out later. Just my .02.
Stu ....Did a test on one of these plastic intakes and pumped it to 30 PSI and held it for 30 minutes.... I think it'll be okay.

Going to to need a 3bar map for that much boost sir. Also those rails is there a fitting on the front drivers side as there is no room for a fitting there except for one style Stu found awhile back.

Fittings on all four corners.

Just an update..... All back together, up and running, with a soft tune & data logging. Currently trying to finish my break in. I'm moving into my new house next weekend then we'll be getting the ATS valve body swapped out with the new co-pilot so testing can begin. Since I have to go to the transmission shop to do the relearn, I'll see how much they'll charge me to swap out the valve body.... I'll keep you posted as things progress.

Did before he took motor out and went this route. I have a tune ready only need the scaling for the injectors to at least Fire it up but guess I'm not doing it now.
Sorry Keith for the misunderstanding, my fault. You would be doing the tuning if Billy did not fulfill as promised! I'm glad to know someone has my back in this build. Thank you!!

Almost lost it all today....... Spent 2 hours in a mud ditch on the side of I-95 and 4 hours in the driveway cleaning off all the mud that got squashed into every crevice of this truck.... Unfortunately this truck has put me in a bad positions twice now since I have owned it and has wore out its welcome I think it's time to move on.... I will be pulling it apart putting in a stock motor and transmission and putting it for sale..... Unless someone wants to make me a nice offer.....
