6.4 pulling truck build

My buddy has been building this pulling truck for a long time now. The truck is an f450 that was totaled in a crash. The frame was shortened and the axle put in at 158" wheelbase. The bed is a standared 8 foot bed with another 21" welded to the fornt to make a 10' box. The rear axle is a Dana 80 out of a Dodge with big axles in it. The front end was switch to a standard Dana 60 front. The truck owner has the F450 rear end and front end that he would like to sell. The motor build is a stock bottom end, Elite Cam, Ported heads, Modified HPFP, 100% over injectors, Air dog and 3.0 single Bulleseye Turbo. It is a ZF6 manual tranny with a Southbend 2 disk clutch.

Currently the truck has some issues that we are trying to work out. Hopefully they are just tuning issues. What do you think?

Here are some Pics.

The bed stretch looks very clean... nice work. Looks like it got a body lift too?

Yes, body lift. I think it is a 3". On the bed stretch the original bed front is still on both parts. So it ended up with a compartment in the front. Guy found that diamond plate toolbox that is damaged and cut the bottom off it. The only part of the tool box that is left is what you can see. It fit great over the compartment that was made. He mounted his Fuel Cell in there. And if the intercooler doesn't work very well just being in the black vat of ice water he is will mount his ice cooler back there if the truck gets switched to an air/water intercooler.

How did he delete the fuel filter on top of the engine? And what did he do with the fuel coolers?
