Cab off at Cobbs!!

Well as some of you may remember Ive been planning a cab off for awhile now. I arranged everything with John at Cobbs Diesel Performance in Loudon,TN and him and Kyle have been great so far!

I arrived in Loudon Sunday night from Olive Branch, MS and showed up first thing Monday morning at the shop. John began work on my truck immediately.

The planned additions are as follows........

Elite Head Studs
Elite EGR delete with wastegate and electronic controller
Elite HPFP
Elite 60HP injectors
Elite ported fuel rails
Airdog 165
BD BOV
Cobbs cold side intercooler tube
Cobbs intake elbow
Flo Pro 4inch downpipe

We are also trying to get ahold of Elites chromemoly pushrods if anyone can help.........

I will be posting pictures of the whole procedure and how things are coming along. I wanted to dyno before and after but time did not permit and I couldnt find a dyno nearby.
I also plan on going by Top Gun Customz while Im here to look around and get into more trouble.

On with the pictures......

Before I left


Cabs Off






Opened Up


Stock injectors and fuel rail




Elite Studs are in


Tommorow we plan to start putting it back together with the goods........

Whats an approximate price tag on a build like that (if you don't mind me asking)? The more I read these posts, the sooner I want to start on it all as well.

Today went smoothly........got the injectors, hpfp, and fuel rails in, mocked up the EGR delete and wastegate............

tommorow we will be welding up the EGR delete and downpipe and hopefully start to put the cab back down..........then proceed to the cold side tube, BOV, Airdog, and wiring in the electronic controller.

No signs of wear or damage on the heads or anything else by the way

On with the new pictures......

Injector tips


Wastegate


Electronic controller for wastegate


Intake elbow


Ported fuel rails


cold side tube


4inch downpipe


Airdog 165


EGR delete and wastegate installed
