Engine rebuild parts

Wanting to build my 6.0 engine I got last weekend. To go in my '85 dodge in sig.

#1 injector stuck open therefore #1 piston melted along with head and valves. Chunks also got into #3 & #5 but didn't damage walls or valves. #1 is getting sleeved.

I want to re-use stock crank, cam, rods,and injectors (bigger cam and injectors down the road)

Here's what I'm looking to purchase and I'd like some suggestions.

Pistons and rings

Push rods

Heads rebuilt maybe o-rings?

Head studs

Head gaskets

4 stock injectors


Fuel system such as air dog or simalar

I'm building my own intake manifold and exhaust headers for. Twin turbos: one per bank. I got the equipment for TIG and MIG and a machinest for a best friend so I'm covered in most areas.

Any ideas on who to get in touch with?

River City Diesel can supply everything and has most of that in stock. but any of the vendors on here would be a good choice

+1 on that suggestion. Put your request in the "Supporting Vendors Forum" and you should get some responses and prices.
