6.0L is a great motor... wish it would hold up better though. I had a lot of trouble out of my old one. It was a dualie King Ranch and around 79k miles the head gasket blew out for no reason. I had it redone and studded, to prevent it from happening again. I like my new PSD though... and the best PSD I ever owned a 7.3L, 440ci. No replacement for displacement no matter what numbers were the 7.3L never struggled or strained pulling nothing.

I am interested in seeing more pictures.. Been following this thread for sometime now.

OK, it was time to get back to it. John sent some pics to my phone today, and were close on the long block. Have a few things were doing still.

Never got to paint the engine compartment and frame rails before, so:





Still have to clean up the wiring, but I got some BIG ASS ISSPRO oil pressure, Water temp, and ammeter gauges and put them front and center. I want to know immediately whats going on with any of that.






Installed the second Snow water meth kit, painted the FICM, and anything that was BLUE, is now black.

Also added a few sponsor stickers, and removed one that I COUGH trusted COUGH no one would care about anymore.


I'm ready to get this fukkin thing back on the track.

Ordered a line lock, and a second set of rear calipers for the brakes.

Don't have the valve covers on yet because I don't have the injectors in yet. But I think it looks better in paint.
