Got a lot of questions
I had an 04 SC/SB 6.0 with IDP x-street tune, some kind of aftermarket intake, a 4in turbo back to 6in stacks, a suncoast extreme duty rebuild kit and a ATS 5 star convertor. Stock everything else as far as i know. I took the truck to the track a few times and the slowest it ever ran was a 13.6. I thought most trucks with the similar things run mid to low 14's? Any way the truck has totaled earlier this month when a mini van pulled out in front of me. I found a 03 SC/LB 6.0 with ~75,000 that has 2 melted pistons in it for $10k. Is that to much money? If it is what would be an good offer for that truck? My plan is to buy the 04 back from the insurance company and the 03 from the other guy, pull both motors and put the 04 motor back in the 03. While the motor is out I plan to stud and delete it put a set of injectors in it and a turbo to go with it. My goal is to be around 550hp to the wheels on fuel and 650-700hp on spray and still keep it a DD. I've been thinking a set of 190's, a Powermax and and airdogII would get me to these levels?
and for the lazy readers:
What would cause an truck with just a tune intake exhaust and built trans to run a mid 13 second time in the quarter?
Is $10k to much to pay for a 03 SC/LB 6.0 with 75,000 miles and a blown motor? If so what is a good offer for it?
would it be hard is it to swap motors in these trucks? I've done things like injectors, egr cooler, turbos before.
Will a set of 190's, a powermax, and an AirDogII get me to 550hp on fuel and 650-700 on spray?
Could it still be a DD and tow between 8000-10000#'s 3-4 times a year?
Will the rest of the motor hold that much power?
And finally would it be worth it to do it at all or should i just find a good truck then do the studs/delete and injectors and turbo?
Thanks in advance everyone
Edit: Forgot to say the 04' was an early year build and had an 03' engine tag on the valve cover
