Finally the time has come- Mitch's truck build

Finally after being very patient this whole winter in waiting for parts etc etc. Mitch and I finally put his beast back to togethor. Here are a couple pics as to what it looks like. I think it turned out really nice and definetly looks mean under the hood. The truck is not finished 100%- it will be running tommorrow, Still need to finish the fuel system, change fluids, and she will run.

Steed speeds on, all I have to say is what a PITA! They are to put on. I dont think I have ever said so many cuss words trying to put these headers on. It might also be a problem that I have softball hands, not a good thing when trying to reach for those little Stainless bolts.


Steed speed up-pipes, ceramic coated and wrapped. These fit very well and was impressed with how they looked and fit.


Ported and polished intake manifold(ported and polished by mitch and welded by Adrian), stage 4 MTW turbo, all necessary parts, no limit cac tube, BPD intercooler, bpd 58v ficm with hercules 120 tune?, all installed. Notice a passenger side valve cover on the drivers side? Yup, custom ccv mod on both valve covers and also needed to run the dieselsite high pressure oil system.


Fuel lab fuel pressure regulator. This is the by far best place to mount the regulator, this is how mine will be mounted in my truck. Bracket was made by mitch- fits with the degass bottle mounting locations.


Finished product


Another shot before the air intake was installed


More to come tommorrow. Forgot to get pics of the intake manifold. Word to the wise on the manifold- be very patient and dont friggin rush the installation process- you drop a bolt in the intake? You do a head removal

Looks good...but personally, I don't like where the fuel regulator is....to each their own tho. Not to mention....push lock hose was used... not a good idea IMO.

Agree with Strokin6L about the push lock connectors, but they are commonly used. Easy and fast to do but IMO really out of place with this great build when I would expect to see braided stainless steel hoses and stainless steel tubing. Did not realize Steed Speed were making their own up-pipes now. SUBSCRIBED!!!!!

Is that hose tapped off the degas bottle coming from the back of the heads?

Looks good, bet you can't wait to get it running.

That blue hose from the degas bottle is running to where the egr delete j-tube would go into. Push lok fittings are commonly used and those are top of the line fragola fittings with good hoses. Nothing wrong with this set-up.

A word of advice on the stainless braided comment, I will never run that sh!t ever again, everything it touches like have a belt sander under your hood. I redid my Dakota R/T with russell proclassic hose and red horse performance AN fittings. After using the proclassic hose and seeing the final look I could never bring myself to use stainless braided line on anything ever again.

Looks fricken awesome man! I actually hit my regulator down under where you guys mounted it so the smog nazis won't see it out here.
Hopefully that beast runs good.
