Finally Bit the Bullet... So Long 6.0!

Well I finally broke down and opted for getting rid of 2 cylinders Too bad I had to dump all of that money into the 6.0 and 5R110, now I'm using neither!

Here are the Specs
My 2006 F350+

07 5.9 CR Motor with a toasted Cylinder, rebuilt from the ground up with:

-12v Rods
-New Pistons .020 over
-110lb Valve Springs
-Fully balanced rotating assembly
-ARP Studs
-90 Horse Sticks
-Diesel Pro Towing Cam
-Custom Built GOS Compounds

-ZF6 Trans
-Southbend 3250 DD
-FASS 150
-Destroked Plate
-Destroke Billet Oil Filter Relocate kit

I'm after a 650ish horse daily driver that I can pull my toys around with



Just a little teaser, will post more pics after the weekend!

Its a daily driver, never spending any time on the track, never going to be hooked to a sled, and if the need arises, I'd like the clutch to be manageable for anyone to drive, not have to be hulk hogan to rally it

Looks nice so far Aden. If the wife's 6L ever goes "Tango Uniform" in the Ex...perhaps I'll have to consider that swap.

~Dave~

2012 F350 KR Dually, stock...bone stock.

early 99 PSD CC F250, DP Tuner F-5, Stealth Stage I, Casserly 160cc singles, Monsterbox Tranny, MBRP cool duals, ITP Regulated fuel system, Cobalts and Performax gauges, and way to much else to remember right now. **traded**

2004 Excursion Limited 6.0L, Dipricol gauges on the A-Pillar, Bilsteins and BFG's on the corners, lost EGR (not looking hard for it either), ARP studs, RCD Black Onyx head gaskets, MBRP 4" exhaust, (labor performed by Dan @ Midwest Transmission) **giggled when traded**

Sneak peak on the twins

Here is a sneak peak on the twins... For now I'm going to run a stock over 474 setup, and down the road swap out the stocker for a PS 62/70. This is with a mockup motor sitting under my hood, my motor is back from the machine shop and fully assembled other than waiting on my cam
