Default Well she's to get tuned

Hopefully the numbers will be good, I'm kind of proud of myself for getting this all done by my own blood sweat and beers. Here's hoping she makes my goals

Good luck, nice work.

That intercooler is a bit high, no? Can you put a hood on that thing?

Good fits with about a half inch to spare on the very front edge. I put it as high as I could to get decent air to the radiator.

They both dump out under the back of the front fenders for now. Eventually I do want everything tucked up under the car and out the back. My welding "skills" aren't the best to be able to do that right now, with practice I should be able to get it don't down the road.

My goal is 600 plus to the tire. It's a stock 6.0 with a BTR stage 2 cam

Very addicting, I exploded the trans behind the big block and decided to change the motor trans and rear end. Lol

I'll let you all know how she does on the 25th. I'm taking her up to complete street performance in PA for the tune

Cool-how tight was the down pipe on the drivers side, what size-I was thinking of trying twins on my new build, but with the manifold, steering, etc, looked like it could be tight.

Should be a very responsive set up. A guy on Yellow Bullet made close to a 1000whp with those turbos on a 6.0L not long ago.

I ran the exhaust right up to the frame rail and out under the back of the front fender. I can steer with out hitting it. The set up will change later on, I'd like to eventually make full exhaust.

I'm only going to run 93 octane for now and what ever boost the tuner says I can do

It has 3" down pipes. The plans are to put a rack in it later to make a little room and feed the exhaust back under the car later
