Shop truck build

We just purchased a shop truck to do some mods on. 6.0L's are a big part of our business and we get the all to often question "are they worth fixing" so I decided to build one. I will update this thread with pics and stuff if I get some subscribers interested. Here's where I'm starting....

To start off I'd like to mention that Andy and Jesse Warren are close friends and will be active in the build. Jesses injectors and Andy and I are guna put the trans together. This is what I'm thinking so far... Bought a turbo from a member here "Charlie" as the heart of the build, so mods accordingly.

190/100, BWD 371/82/90, full motor build, delipped pistons, FoMoCo gaskets (my dealership is giving me a screaming deal so I'm gobbling up all I can) ARP 625's, T500, Regulated return, fuel lab/sump. I ordered a 2200rpm converter from Jack at Precision with a forged cover. This truck will be a driver also. Also ordered billet low/rev hub, input and intermediate shafts to hold up to whatever I throw at it.

Here are some things I'm looking for input-opinions on...

Ficm tuning, mitsumoto intercooler, big tube kits, ported intakes.... Begin

PHP Sells a FICM tuner with four tunes on it and can accommodate your bigger injectors. Would probably be best to allow you to test all the tunes.

Wind runner Performance does stage three race intakes and stage 2. I'd talk to the, on the intake. They're a popular source.

Good luck, excited to see how it turns out.

Ed at Ficm repair has been doing our module repair work for a long while now and I'll prolly have to just pick one tune and have him flash it before it comes back. Iirc he mentioned not running the big tune with "larger" injectors for idle reasons?
