So if more companies invested in performance parts for the V10 magnum, imagine what kind of torque you could expect.
The crack was right at the starter/bellhousing. I used the old block to get the new block.

I wish there was more support for the V10, it would be amazing what could be pulled from having two extra cylinders.

Is the motor back in? It sounds like the list that you shared should get you to where you want to be. Unfortunately there is just not a lot for these motors, have you though about cooling since you tow a lot?

The motor is not back in yet. Still waiting on the right springs and a few bolts, but hopefully those will be delivered today and so the motor can be finished up. Hoping to have the truck on the road next week.

From what I understand the V10 is running at 450 foot pounds torque, and if your running the 47RE automatic transmission, its rated at the same 450 lbs torque. If you are then DDT has transmission upgrade kits http://www.dttdiesel.com/product-p/d...ebuild-kit.htm you may want to look at that if your going to be pulling more power out of that engine. and Fastman makes a throttle body too http://www.thefastman.com/throttlebodies80.php I hope this helps some.

good luck.

Tom

I ended up putting headers on the motor, a good port, polish, and matching. Everything else I left stock. I have the NV4500, so I think planting the powere is not a problem.

Default Don't be discouraged,

There are a lot more options than u know about with that v10. I built mine as a pulling truck motor, I was able to bore it .060, pistons from Ross racing pistons, H beam rods from lunati, a custom ground cam from crower, a viper forged steal crank, ARP head studs, all new felpro gaskets, ported the head and shaved it .050 for a 12.0:1 compression, and it is now a 519ci 675hp monster, don't be doubtful, just do the reseArch

I did the research, but in comparison to the 360/318 Chry, or 350 Chev... No comparison at all, more bolt on parts available to those then just about anything else. I'm surprised you were able to run a 12:1 compression on cast iron heads, but then again what was the IVC on the cam? DCR vs SCR...

Well coroner had to take a viper cam and grind it to my specs with a 685 lift, and I can do it with cast iron heads with head studs and I use copper head gaskets, due to u can get different thicknesses for valve clearance

Yes but valve clearance also depends on valve even times. If you do a little trigonometry you can figure out exactly your valve clearances at different degrees of crank angle. I was just thinking what your IVC time must be, for 12:1 SCR (assuming SCR) then you must be something close to 70 degrees ABDC... that or you are running higher octane fuel and a cool thermostat
