Tryin to make the Excursion GO FAST!

Finally pulling my Excursion in (hasn't ran in over 3 months) for some work. It has blown head gaskets and a bad IPR. I've been looking forward to this for awhile and finally got some room in the shop. I'm also needing some help coming up with a name for my Excursion...post any suggestions. I'll post pics later.

Mods will be:

205/100 Warren injectors
S366 w/ our first t4 mount (maybe twins later on)
Divided up-pipes
ARP studs
Hamilton push rods and valve springs
New Ford gaskets, oil cooler, stc fitting, dummy plugs, standpipes and IPR
EGR delete
AirdogII 165
Drilled banjo bolts
Coolant filter kit
AFE Big Boost air filter
Colt race cam
AIS water/meth kit (mounting location undecided)
Mild port job on heads by Soot Powered
High Velocity intake manifold
Intake elbow (undecided on which one)
Flo~Pro 4in exhaust
Edge CTS
SCT w/ tunes by IDP and KEM
Possibly headers later on

This sounds like a solid build for sure. There are two things though that I wouldn't do. One is the AD2 fuel pump. I would HIGHLY suggest just getting either an AD150 and Fuelab or A1000 or just the Fuelab. Either set up would need a sump of course. Just too many failure rates for me on this.

I also recommend using 90* fittings on the fuel ports on the heads. These will flow way more than drilled banjos and wont be weak from torquing. I ran Strictly Diesels RR kit with High Flow banjo bolts made from stainless steel and they couldn't take 20ft-lbs of torque without twisting. I have been using 90* 6AN male to M12x1.5 male adapters and they have held up GREAT. Again JMO on this. Take it FWIW. Best of luck with the build, sounds SICK.

I agree that you should get a regulate return, and stay away from the airdog II. Also, have you looking onto manifolds like the steeds or MPD's, if you get them with the up pipes, most places will usually give you a deal. Instead of an intake elbow, you might want to look at a No-Limit CAC pipe. They look sweet and work great.

Sounds like that will be an awesome truck. What are the plans for your tranny? Good Luck!

There will be a regulated return. We have our own headers and getting Matt at Cutting Edge to do my up-pipes.
