Finally The Cab Comes Off

We have been avoiding cab-off at all costs. We accomplished Studs, Fuel System, HPFP, Turbo removal and install, EGR Delete kit with wastegate, chromoly pushrods and more all with the cab on. All of which is suppose to be cab-off.
For those who have not heard/seen on other forums, we broke the intermediate shaft in our suncoast trans. This caused the engine to over rev and the piston and valves hit. We are going to ported heads and upgraded springs, thanks to Elite Diesel.
Here are some pictures and a video.

^^^Its hard to see, but that is a light next to the valve and you can see light coming through.

Sucks that it happened that way, but usually that is the best way to talk yourself into more parts.

Cool! Thanks for finding another weak link for Suncoast to upgrade before I break down and buy a tranny!

Backpressure drove those valves open during the overrev. Time for valvesprings.

Is Ford not wanting to cover this under warranty?

HaHa thats a good one.

Man Aaron I'm getting a chubby just thinking about your upgrades on a already fast truck. Are you going to do the larger turbos too while your in there? Could this be the first 6.4 in the 10's?

We shall see about the 10's, but that is what I am shooting for. I am still waiting for Elite to finish the turbo's they are working on. I am pretty sure that no one is currently running these, other than maybe the 6.4 in the DPC.

Wow. A 10 second 6.4 would be awesome.
