From another forum I'm on. I'll try and piece together all the good stuff.


picked up this here 2005 coloorraydo for 3k


drove over to the scrap yard *collis truck parts*
and picked up a 2006 6.0 out of an express van




for this build since im thinking about keeping it a while, i had someone build a hotside so i could just bolt it in.
Cory Johnson build this masterpiece



pulled the 4 popper and 60e






dropped in 6.0 checked for clearance issues


pretty nice!



junkyard 80e HD2 kit time


slap on PTC converter


drop it all in and start bolting up hotside


install larger pump


wiring!


make room for intercooler

500 @ 6 psi
608 on 10psi lifting because fuel running out, I have some kinks in the plastic feed line thinking that's it lol pretty happy it's making 28~whp per psi so might go 700 on 15ish crazy. No wonder it's a handful on 6 psi

so i cut a screwdriver head off, welded it to the inside of my 4wd front hub and welded a hurst shifter bracket eyelet to the hub assembly and pointed it at the screwdriver head, bam, instant VSS2, and working traction control, now to model it out and tune it for the vehicle.
yes, even i think this is rediculous but holy fuck it works
