Mighty Whitey's build thread-Vision Diesel Performance

Ok, so its about time to get Mighty Whitey back in the power game. The end goal is a reliable 550+ RWHP capable of everything from daily driving in town with the wife and kids, towing heavy (14k+), hitting the track/dyno at events to cruising down the highway with the family and boat in tow and the wife driving. I want an all around good, reliable, useful truck thats capable of making respectable power and still doing everything it could from the factory, just better.

She began life as a 2006 extended cab, long bed, 4x4 w/ FX4 package. I've Added 17" Gear Alloy 715c Recoil wrapped in BridgeStone Dueler AT's (35's), a 2.5" front leveling kit and a replaced the stock 2" rear block with a SuperLift 3" block along with Ranch RS 5000 shocks all around and a Rancho RS 9000 steering stabilizer. She has 60,xxx miles on her right now.

Here's what she's got now-
ARP head studs w/ OEM gaskets
MTW stage 1
MBRP 3.5" DP into a 4" straight pipe
S&B intake
River City Diesel EGR delete
Quick Tricks 58V FICM
PHP Atlas 40 FICM tune
SCT Livewire w/ tunes from damn near every tuner out there
AIS boost activated, dual nozzle water/meth kit w/ 6 gallon tank mounted in the toolbox
GoGo diesel direct clutch solenoid
ELC coolant
DieselSite coolant filtration kit
Metal cold side CAC tube
HPS CAC boots and SS clamps
Strokers Unlimited Y-pipe w/ upgraded bellows, ceramic coated along with the River City delete pipe
Blue spring upgrade
EDGE CTS w/ EGT probe
GlowShift Fuel pressure (0-100psi) and Boost (0-60) gauges
Innovative Diesel upgraded HFCM drain plug
Quick Tricks Billet Oil and Fuel filter caps (polished)
Polished oil filler cap
Powder coated and hydro graphiced CAC tubes
Harley headlights

I'm sure Im forgetting something. I'll update this list if I think of anything else.

What she's gonna get-
Bullet Proof Diesel oil cooler relocation kit
Twisted Diesel Stage 2 trans with billet input shaft, triple disc billet converter and upgraded solenoid pack
Regulated return- WPE
Beans Diesel Performance sump
Air Dog 150 feeding the HFCM or a new high pressure pump
Warren Diesel Injectors- Probably 175/30's but maybe upgrading to 190/50's
Ported intake manifold
Pusher intake elbow w/ 4 ports
Vision Diesel Performance S2 64.7mm/billet

What she might get-
4.10 ring and pinion set front and rear
Detroit Trutrac in the rear
Nitrous

If anyone can think of anything I've missed, let me know. I've added some pictures of the now for comparison to later. Hopefully I'll have plenty of pictures throughout the build. I'll keep this thread updated with the progress. It won't happen over night, but should be interesting to see it all come together. Thanks guys and bring on the comments, criticism or support.

I have a company vehicle I drive day to day. The truck sits during the week and can often go several weeks without getting driven. My wife's 05' Denali only has 91,xxx miles on it and its her daily driver and our family vehicle to boot. The truck is mainly a tow pig/toy.

Matt, sounds like a solid build and I know you've been putting a lot of thought into this. Let me know if you need any help.

If you go with a new pump (like AD165 or similar), I would do RR kit that deletes the small fuel filter up top. It would be a pain to pay $50 just to replace the small filter. Josh and I are gonna do an oil filter housing off a 6.4L so the fuel filter housing is removed. I think it'll look cleaner that way....and add a little bit more room in there bc more room is nice.

Matt, you know I'm here if you want any help.

Has anyone considered an ARB? Nice manners of an open diff when the wife is driving in the rain or locked solid when you want it to be. Just wondering.
