Just a quick update from our visit to Bonneville salt flats for speedweek.
Best run of 179.2mph
6 runs total
Qualified for the B/DT record and backed it up at 177.9mph
Broke the lower shaft in the quickchange differential and replaced it out on the salt .
We were fighting drive pressure issues (pressure in the exhaust manifold) it was holding us back to about 2500 rpm in top gear.
New turbo/manifold and external wastegate going on for the next meet.
The truck is still street legal only difference is I run the skinny tires on the salt.
Here's a few pics from the meet.

Here is the new Garrett that's going on in place of the compound turbos, I'm mounting it on an externally gated manifold along with a decent sized wastegate.

I started fitting the turbo on Thursday, I had to slice and dice a gen 2 down pipe to fit the new setup along with a new flange. I found an oil drain from a commercial 6.7 turbo that I dismantled laying in the shop. The stock oil supply line worked fine, then used the intake pipe and filter from the compound setup.
I used AN 6 fittings and braided line for the water supply and return on the turbo along with some conversion fittings to go from the metric threads on the engine and turbo to 'AN'.
The turbo to intercooler pipe had to be modded as the turbo end of the pipe wass too small,I sliced this off and welded on a 3inch diameter end .
I'll take it for a wee road test this morning some time.
Here's an install picture.

The new single turbo netted an extra 148 hp on the Dyno, getting us 886hp 1430lb/ft to the wheels. I'm hoping this gives us some longer legs on the salt flats.

The truck runs straight as an arrow at speed, although we do have to fill a 110 gallon water tank in the bed of the truck to keep the rear wheels planted.
We are hoping to make it out to El Mirage dry lake later this month or early Nov if it stays dry. See what it can do in 1.3 miles.
