Highlights of my engine build by PHP

ok, so this all started as a simple take the heads off have them cleaned up and put studs in along with new turbo,injectors, HPOP, and fuel system... what it turned into was a complete engine rebuild after Bill found a good bit of damage to my rockers,valves and pistons... just figured i would share some of the highlights of the build with yall



on the trailer headed to GA for Bill to work his magic!!



engine is out and ready to find out whats going on



the turbo has seen better days!!!! it seems squirrels made a next in my intake while i had the truck parked for a while!!!!



Cody tearing the engine apart



almost coompletely tore down



think the valves need replacing??



piston damage!!



kinda hard to see but showing the cylinder wear



cleaned up and ready to start going back together



looking like an engine again



getting there!!



shot of the Adrenaline pump and CPR fuel system



better shot...



everything back together and back in the truck



close up of fuel bowl delete and new fuel filter



CPR fuel pressure regulator mounted



on the dyno breaking in the engine



and its done!!!


First of i have to give HUGE props to Bill,Brad and Cody From Power Hungry Performance, they have done an awesome job and are absolute pleasure to work with!! 2nd i got to thank Bob Riley at dieselsite for everything from answering all my dumb questions and always being on top of getting bill parts as soon as i would order them LOL, and Clay at RiffRaff for the awesome deal on the turbo.... and also thanks to everyone who i have bugged and bothered while i was gathering parts to get this underway!!!! i will have dyno numbers soon

No, you aren't only one... I had no plans of going this far with it, when bill told me it needed rebuilding I tried buying just a short block and throw it back together but it ended up being worse than my motor, it did have forged rods which we used since my original motor had powdered metal rods.

I havn't got a final number they were breaking the engine in before doing any hard pulls on it, and thanks they did a great job of making it look really clean, when I get it back I'm gonna detail the engine bay to make it look as nice as the rest of the engine lol
