Thumbs up

I'm kinda new to the diesel world,Joe was very helpful with the intake.Thanks for the heads up on the spelling ,I'm terrible for that.
The motor has polished shotpeened and cryo'd 12v rods in it,the cracked cap rods make good paperweights!, also has fat pushrods and 110lb valve springs(cryo'd) and a hamilton cam.
The quickchange rearend has a 2.0 ring and pinion in it, that with the 6 speed should get me the legs I need.I was estimating turning the motor to about 3800 to 4000.I'm using the H&S mini maxx with the full tuning capability,very similar to efi setup.I'll have to get over to comp D,although I thought those guys are pulling sleds.

Joe is a very good friend of mine and heavily sponsored my last truck, in fact the Cummins conversion in my F250 was done in house at his shop. He's gonna be doing some work on my Ram R/T too. I know Zach Hamilton well also, and probably anyone else in the diesel industry you may need parts from.
I don't know how deep your contacts are in the diesel world but if I can help in any way just let me know.
I also know a few people who have done diesel land speed projects...I can get you in touch with them if you aren't already. Never hurts to have as much info as you can get.

I'll assume you're tuning it with EFI Live? How fast are you gonna turn the motor? Gonna run a Gear Vendors unit? And most important....did you put a real set of rods in that 6.7? Lord knows they don't like any power put to them. lol
Also...are you on CompD?
