hey all , for years have been wanting to get something going (motor drivetrain wise) and just never seemed to have cash ,found cash to do all my other mods :D , wtf , After sometime doing some/lots of research and help from guys like B585ford ,jeff 08stroker250, ptp(eric/nate) ,mpd(craig) ,and reading about what route others are going (capt dong,country aggie,) ,and agree with most 100% and others not so much but thats what makes this site such a wealth of info ,
The time has come she just keept puking more and more , I found a shop here locally ,great guy and just starting his own business TUFF ENUFF diesel ,here in NWI , Its started as just headgaskets and head studs , but as ALL , I want to get the most out of lifting the cab , I will have to run some of his stickers for this but hell :D , This is what im doing , oem headgskets , headstuds arp , stage 1 Elite cam , valvesprings and pushrods , MPD 6.4 log style ported exhaust manifolds , Diesel Dr 6.4 ported intake , Custom up pipes with Wastegate (precision 46mm ) and also will be installing the LP/HP batmowheels form MPD , Heres a sneak peak at the ported exhaust manifolds


Im able to lend a hand when i can , the trucks about 30 mins from me and we are about 4 days behind schedule ,Trying to get the intake in my hands so i can go get my new PORTEDINTAKE , OH also will be installing a 8" BDS 4 LINK lift with the rear springs , I had all this powdercoated gloss black to match my traction bars , and going with a set of chrome ultra predators 20's with 38x15.50 mickey thompson mt's ( thanks to 1bigpowerlineman) , Ill update as i get pics or more info -thanks for looking in

Sounds like a good plan. Good luck with the build. I hate to be pushy, but can you share the info. (Number & location) on the diesel shop you are using? I'm looking for a good local place myself.

Thanks!

Diesel23 just curious why you decided to go with the log style manifolds? Do they use the same up pipes as the 6.0 manifolds? They look similar.

Please let me know how hard it is to install with the dent vs dent removed. Also are the log type manifolds supposed to outflow the 6.0 manifolds?
