Will I need any drivetrain work?

Around the end of next month, I am taking my truck down to install compounds and 205cc injectors. I have already done the motor and transmission upgrades for this.

My question is, do I need to do anything past that( transfer case, axles, etc....) I have already put a detroit locker in the rear and auburn posi up front. And will probably have new driveshafts made up just in case.

nope everthing in the drivetrain is good besides the tranny. drive shaft loops arnt a bad thing if you plan on racing. And traction bars are a nice addition.

Alrighty then, I have the stock 20's and will try to find the widest tire I can safely fit. I have been looking at trac bars to help out. The driveshaft loop is something I haven't thought about at all. Thanks 06, how's that setup of yours running?

s364 over an s480. Got'em both with batmowheels. I had picked a 474 but decided on the 480 with 1.10 housing and diverter valve. Hoping this thing will light off pretty quickly.

I have heard once tuned right, that when the low pres. side lights, it's a fairly violent blast.

Gotta figure out how to run a 5'' downpipe. And where does passenger side battery go? haven't really found any info on relocating it.

This is alot of work, well more planning than anything. And as always, a huge pile of money.

JMO here, but I think your turbo setup may be a little big for the injectors you want to run. I would think you may have getting the 64mm turbo to light quick. JMO and I really hope it works out great for you. Please keep it up dated as I am always interested in how folks do a compound set up.

Just curious, but who's building your injectors?

Hopefully not, I am having it live tuned plus the airflow paths(gogo intake, headers, ported and polished heads) plus the batmowheels themselves, hopefully that'll help out, it can't hurt. Heck, I may just make me a set of 2.5'' or 3'' up pipes to feed them. I swear there has to be some restriction there.

I am only going this small with sticks until I can afford to pickup a manual dodge to do my pulling with, well what little I do. don't get me wrong, i love the auto, but after rowin' my own for so long, I miss it. I do like the 06-07 commonrails a lot. It's all time and money, plenty of one, not enough of the other.

I got'em from warren diesel a while back.

wont have a problem with the 205s, That is alot of fuel. Are you running dividers on both? battery will go to the drivers side where the factory air filter would be. Im just running one with mine right now becasue the way mine is made I dont have room to fit my big batteries in that stop. Im going to get a couple of smaller frame batteries and make it work.
