What do you guys think about this?

How does this truck look to you all? And how would the twins perform with stock injectors until I could get a box and 200's?

Id prolly pas, unless he has reciepts for all the stuff, and you can talk to the builder.. I don't like that he says it used to be a manual but put an auto in it, WHY? .

Man I just gotta be honest, I am not sure I would chance it..

Only reason why I could figure he swapped out the 5 speed for the auto would be for drag racing it. I may take a look at it, but he's gonna have to knock the price down a couple more grand before anything serious goes down. I'm just worried if I get it, it's gonna be way too laggy until I get some bigger injectors and a box to give it the fuel those twins need. Another thing I'm worried about is if I'll be able to tow with it and how the fuel milage would be with those twins.

pass on it. unless you can get it for less it's not a pretty compound setup on there. The trans has stock output shaft and is supposed to hold 750? Mine went at 600. Glowshift gauges = junk. Looks like it's been beat on pretty good doesn't have current pic of interior just one when it had the 5spd.

01 quad cab 4x4, edge drag comp, 4" exhaust, fass 150, 250 ddps, Jefferson State compounds 683hp so vp 11.91. AMSOIL front to rear. now back to stock 95 fummins in the works

That's the auto shifter. I've personally seen the truck in town and it was pretty beast with a box and 200's.

have you looked up the specs on a he341? same exhaust housing as a hy35 I bet this thing makes some serious egt's on the big end. I ran my compound setup 62/71/14 over a s475. I just think he is asking a lot for it with no box and stock injectors.

the 341/71 twins will run with stock injectors and no box. at least a box would help a lot. they will be laggier than stock but shouldnt be too bad.

At this time I think I'm gonna have to pass. He can't come up with any of the reciepts or dates of the work or anything. Unless he goes down ALOT on the price, I'll find something else. I prefer to buy stock trucks anyway, so that way I know what is been done to it.
