New Build Suggestions

Hoping you guys could help me out here a little bit. A little background on the truck/build. I have an 06 f250 with 140xxx on the clock. Was my daily driver/farm truck/plow and salt truck for several years. This spring I decided to get a rust free bed to put on it, then that turned into wanting a rust free cab and then into basically a body off rebuild. The initial plans were to keep the build small and still daily drive the truck. However my mind has now changed and I plan on this truck being a trailer queen and built for sled pulling in the 2.6 class.

Truck already has been bulletproofed and has had no issues since. I'm in the process if putting together a complete new fuel system, lines and all that should have no problem flowing what I will need fuel wise.

I have plans to go with 205/100 injectors most likely from Warren. I had originally planned on pairing this up with a turbo from either Barder or KC. However I have recently started looking at non-vgt setups and it has my brain spinning with so many options and ideas. I know a non-vgt will take longer to build boost which is really not an issue for my plans. What is your guys recommendation on a setup? I am limited to a 2.6 inducer bore so can't do much over 66mm. I know there are other pieces to my setup that I am missing such as dual hpop, ported intake, cai, tranny etc, but I think I have most of those figured out and they will fall into place once I decide on turbo and sticks.

Throw out some ideas here guys. Looking for a good setup that will put me in the 650rwhp range to start. Maybe there is something key I am missing. Any questions just ask. I didn't want to bore you with two pages of my build plans, so if there is something you need to know ask away.

Might want to look into a cam as well, it will expand your powerband and help the motor breath better.

A cam is on the build list. I plan on getting the truck together first and then doing a full bottom up build when I save up some more cash.

I don't like non-vgt for the street, towing, but I believe they work really well for a drag and pulling trucks. I would go to Barder , he builds good turbo, and knows non-vgt well. He might have suggestion based off some of his customers running non-vgt. I also know of a guy that runs a 63mm non-vgt built by Fleece in the 2.5 class. He has 205/100 and put down 650rwhp on a dyno, and does well in pulls. His truck was in diesel power magazine, a while back. Hope your build works out for you.

My recommendation would be to not build a "2.6" 6.0. You'll just get killed with 205/100s. I'd recommend sticking with like a work stock type class, using a 2.5 turbo, and with 205/100s and dual HPOPs, you'll be in the 600-650hp range.

I worked with KC to build a 2.5 VGT sled pulling turbo. I'm sure he'd be happy to talk with u on it more. Hope this helps.

Thanks Nate I'll talk to KC and see what he has to offer. I currently pull work stock, but the rules fluctuate to much from pull to pull to "build" a truck. In work stock we can't run a dual HPOP and some places won't even allow traction bars or spring clamps. After speaking with a few builders yesterday we are going to build more for the 2.5 class and bump up to 2.6 if 2.5 isn't offered. Around here they have a 2.5, 2.6 and 3.0 at almost all pulls.

Do you think sticking with a vgt turbo is best?

Nate, do you have some contact info for KC? Thought I had it wrote down somewhere but can't seem to find it.

Personally I believe an upgraded hpop will do just fine, I know mine does with 225s. The efr 9180 would do well with those sticks imo and spool better than a box 66, which I have for sale.

Got ya. I didn't realize what your specific rules were. I think if you're doing anything other than a Work Stock class (where basically a 'stock appearing' turbo has to be used), I'd recommend ditching the VGT.
