6.0 Black Mamba crate?

Anybody have one of these or know much about them?

I have an 04 6.0 with 117k on it. Had it for about two weeks. It runs great at the moment. But im wanting to build it up a little bit. Been pricing everything i want to do to it and its getting close to the price of one of these motors so im just wondering if it would be better to just do a motor swap. I realize with a bigger motor like that it would be good to re do the transmission as well that was also in my planes a little farther down the road. Just wanted some other opinions on them. I havent found to many reviews or much info about them. Also cant tell if they still have an EGR cooler or if they do a delet on them?

It seems like they address all the problems with 6.0 plus you would basically have a brand new motor. Seems like a great deal.

would probably Be better off selling your motor seperatly, you could get more than 3 grand for a running 6.0 motor

Thats really not to bad of a price honestly for a almost complete motor. But I'd like to talk to them hands first etc what they have going on etc.

420/885 seems to be a bit off in my estimation. That torque seems high for a 6.0 only pushing 420hp. Are those figures Flywheel or Rear wheel? Price doesn't seem too bad. I'd be interested to see the details for the 550hp version.

Dave not yet hopefully this week rushing to get it done, and tuned to head to TS.

Green, I already emailed them about the motor in detail what Im asking about them. Now torque doesnt seem to bad when I dyno yrs ago with Dj's looney tune i did 440/800+ the guys chart stopped at 800 . So it can be possible though.

Like I said ive email these guys already and see exactly what all is into it.
