Hello, everyone I'm starting this thread for a couple of reasons, one for members to see what I'm doing and another for so advice from the vendors and members to save time for build. I'm a vendor myself, so the turbos I will be using will be mine, but as far as alot of the other parts they will be by other vendors and shops from here.
I'm not selling or pricing on this thread just basically offering a go as I go build for my "MAD TRUCK". I plan on having dyno numbers, track times, pictures and video of whole thing.

So let's get started, the truck a 2004 f250 ext. cab XLT short bed. Truck as I bought has a 5.5 fabtech lift with 18 rims and 37" tires, also came with traction bars. It's and stock auto transmission, and 4x4, very clean truck with 111000, miles on it.

The mods I have done so far is ARP studs, Egr delete(ebay), 58v ficm, regulated fuel system(dozer's), 175/75 injectors(dozer's),inline high pressure fuel pump and filter,banks intercooler,factory oilcooler upgrade, Sct tuner,water/meth kit and analog gages(old school).Replaced single rear end with a factory limited slip unit, all work was accomplished be me. Pretty much the normal stuff, turbos have been stock to stage1- stage 2, right now no turbo.So that the base, of the truck and that's what I plan the build on.
This build is going to keep going on, and change untill I get to the point that I will stop.

Ok so, here's part 1, turbo will be a stage 3 tweeked just alittle more than the offer for sale.Injectors will stay same for now, have a set of 205/150 coming from Renenaged Diesel in next few weeks for upgrade.

Now, here's where I need input. I want to upgrade fuel system and thinking about a airdog 150, shooting into areo 1000 pump, to regulated fuel system.I also want to upgrade HPOP to diesel site pump and also use their performance oil pressure feed system. I believe that should take care of the fuel system.

A ported intake manifold will be next at same time as HPOP, either my ported 6.0 intake or a special one I will be running and will tell to guys later about it.
Next I will be taking truck to Altanta to get transmission built. After getting truck back it's run a tune to get it to Chris at TSD for a live tune on the stage 3 with the 205/150 injectors.

I plan on dyno numbers and of course track times for this build.I also plan on running this combo for alittle bit, well I wait extra set of heads to be worked on, and plan on contacting RCD for a set of lifters, and pushrods when head comes off and new on goes on.
Thanks ahead of time for all your input and look forward to working with all the vendors I can on this site.

This thread ought to be a good one! Can't wait to see the progress. How did your stage 2 work with the 175/75s? Was it able to clean them up enough?

The stage 2 with cast wheel did pretty good, still had to be defueled alittle. WOT was at 1400 degrees at over 100mph. I think the billet with a turbine section modded would do better.

Adrian, i have the same style fuel system you plan on buiding except i have a fuelab pump instead of the Aeromotive and a FASS instead of an Airdog 150. I love the idea of using a low pressure pusher pump to feed a bigger pump...mine has been working flawlessly for years so far with zero issues. Now as far as the HPOP with the HPODS...Bill does not offer the HPODS(high pressure oil delivery system) for the '03-04 truck...only the '05-07 trucks. This is due to the ICP sensor location and the difference in the high pressure oil rails....it wont work with the '03-04 trucks unless you use the later 05-07 heads.

Yeh, I read that, I have the newer head design, with the icp in the vavle cover and the same as 05-06 oil rails. I guess I have a late 2004, it's a mix of parts, like I have said before these trucks are different in the same year, and different from year to year. Do you know anyone with the high pressure oil feed system? and does it work?

I think this is what i'd like to try out with my 190/75's. I think a billet stage 2 with some turbine work will do nicely for me.

I'm sure there are "other" options on an intake manifold. Might just be one of the biggest secrets in plain sight of all.

Wow...that's all I can say. If the thumbnail for the video hadn't been the truck launched on 2 I wouldn't have believed it.
