idk the guy repeats himself almost 3 times in his listing and then states at the end hes not giving out details about the motor and turbo that he just told you all about, makes me wonder if its for real

Lets poke holes in this

He has a vacuum gauge, diesels dont make vacuum

He has 425cc injectors last I checked 400 was the max

He says it is a common rail

He has 2 fass pumps one on each tank? Should just need 1

The truck might be real but the owner is an idiot, I would not but a truck that modded ever especially by a moron.

Just saying.

He left out the important stuff like nozzle size on injector turbo sizing and all. Compression ratio and stuff like that.

But I agree it looks copied an pasted together.

400cc is not the largest injectors come.... you can get lots more out of them!

The dual fass pumps is probably because one would never ever keep up, or he is using both tanks and did the system a weird way.

With twin turbos it could make that PSI but id be interested in seeing who built the transmission.

Also there is no one in hell its a 1000hp truck. any 7.3 needs a BUTT load of nitrous to hit 1000hp, i think brian has proved that! Its not any easy task and the motor build would be much much more if it was setup for 1000hp

and if its a common rail for real, its worth some major dough. None of the pictures i can see represent it actually being a common rail though

there is a lot of good info actually.... those twins will build 80-100 psi of boost depending on what turbos they are.
The engine build seems pretty good as well with the rods and bored .030 over and all that jazz.

It just seems like the truck was built by a shop and this guy is one of those that pays to have it all done then doesnt know exactly what he has. He only knows what he is told
