Modification Addiction...

Does anyone else get the urge to do a complete engine rebuild on a 6.4 with extreme performance parts every Saturday after watching HorsepowerTV?

I feel like if I had a spare 6.4 motor, performance shop in my backyard and a ton of money I would be out there right now porting heads, changing cams, doing valve jobs and just plain reworking an entire engine!

Yup, at times I'm thinking. I'm done putting money into that truck. Just run it and hope it lasts. The next day I'm like well maybe just go ahead and stud it and upgrade the top end of the motor, throw in the batmowheels and egr delete and call it a day lol. If only I had the money burning a hole in my pocket. Only thing stopping me from an egr delete is the emissions. We had it a few years back and I'm sure it won't be long before it needs to be on there

When we had cable i would sit every Saturday morning and watch all those shows in the Power Block.

Man it would make me want to upgrade my truck, get another muscle car to toy with. Always something LOL.

Its like a crack head being near crack. Im ok as long as i dont watch the shows but as soon as i do man i get the itch.

If i could id by a junk yard 6.4 and start the upgrades. Luckly i dont have room left in the garage with all the toys i got in there now.

That's the problem. Only things in my garage are my motorcycle, riding mower, miller bobcat 225 welder and the set of lariat wheels and tires I'm trying to sell.

Leaves lots of space for projects.....

Dude I'm the same way! I watch those shows every Saturday or Sunday since I was in high school, if I had the money that's all I would do is build hit rods and tinker with sh!t all day. I can never rest my mind from what the next mod should be, I just can't. LOL, since I quit drinking 2 years ago and I have a very addictive personality and this truck modification addiction has replaced my old beer addiction lol. I'd love to build a 6.4 motor from scratch and dump a truckload full of cash into it...I have the truck to load the cash in but no cash to load into the truck lol
