What is your dream build!!?

Alright ladies and gents. Let's see what kind of crazy/awesome ideas you have for building the most BA diesel truck you can dream of. I'll start off with the first.

My dream build is to make an outrageously powerful 6.4 that will have a huge single turbo fed by a procharger for awesome street-ability and even be able to tow a little. I have even looked into kits like Maryland Performance single s475 kit(even though I'd probably go bigger) fed by a custom procharger set up. I just love the idea of instant spool to feed a huge turbo for big power. Of course I would finish it all off with nice looks like I have always wanted a 6" lift with 37's on 20's. Also all the supporting mods to get tons of power and get it to the ground efficently as possible.

I had this idea to try to make the perfect truck for the Diesel Power Challenge.

So that's my idea, now share yours!

p.s. wasn't real sure where to put this, move it if needed mods..

I have too many ideas to type out. One thing I would like to build is a SWB 08-10 reg cab 6.4 modded and tuned to 6-700rwhp. Black on white.

I'd like to build a 2007 F350 Highline in bright red, with a CAT C7 and Eaton 6-speed automated transmission somehow shoehorned into the engine bay.
Of course the C7 couldn't be stock. I would like it to be upgraded with a custom compound turbo setup, injectors and custom tuning.

I doubt that it's possible, but would be pretty cool.

Wow, that's an awesome idea. Sounds like tons of work too if it is even possible at all lol

Ya I think the C7 is probably too long to fit without serious firewall modifications, and there would be lots of other custom fab work, but a twin turbo 7.2L straight 6 that'll last forever would be awesome!

My dream build is to have a 6 speed manual, F350, Lariat 6.4 tuned and when the motor eventually goes I will put a twin turbo 6.7 cummins in it and have it built for towing at 500hp.
