Getting the truck ready for TS, the clock is ticking!
Truck got new paint on the cab, box paint is fresh as of Spring 07, but the cab had original paint. We had some hitch & suspension tweaks to do so we had the body shop leave the box off for us for easy access.
Shop is a filthy mess right now!
Left side of engine bay vs right.
Left side of engine bay polished up a bit.
Getting the motor in for air-water IC mock up etc. I didn't realize INTERNATIONAL blocks were made as far back as 96, I thought only a VERY few 98s were made, apparently they had at least 2 castings by International!
(not yet ported) Stage 3 cylinder head set on for intake manifold mockup
Pump mounted for mock up.
Manifold mounted for turbo mockup.
Just messing with you guys, here is the REAL motor going in the truck:
I really like the looks of the billet aluminum freeze plugs!
Billet Tappet Cover
A peak at the Ross forged pistons
Better view of the pistons.
The REAL pump going on the truck
Re-worked and tweaked TN charger for 08
I'll post more updates soon as the project progresses.
