  1. Muscle Trucks!!! Wild Engine Setups! What's out there?

    Hello everyone!! Greetings from the deep south!!:mdr:

    I have spent a whole lot of time and mula building my truck. I posted a few pics and no one comments. I mean is it cool? Does it suck? I donĀ“t know what people think about the work I put into this.

    So I thought why not start a new forum about muscle trucks. Lets all see what guys have built. Show off your mods and lets vote on these things! Is it just flashy? Is all buisiness? Is it both? What kind of power are you making?

    X2 on what Stephan said. Would have commented but must have missed post. You sir, have done some amazing work. must tell us what power it makes.
  7. Thanks for the comments guys. I ran out of money after the oil spill in the gulf shut down the field services division of SMI companies. I spent thousands putting this engine together and just when I'm nearly done BP happens. I have a few vids on Youtube of this thing running. Just look for user Cajun Road Warrior on youtube. I still need a new ECM from Dynamic EFI to get it running right. Brian Harris of TBI chips got the tuning this far but waiting for mail and chip swaping is a pain. I need to tune it myself on the fly.

    According to the Desktop Dyno this setup should put out a conservative 480hp. Even with a bad tune it still destroys tires. On one vid I did a long burnout at half throttle; any more throttle and the engine would stall. I found out I had a bad TPS sensor and replaced it. I still have a long way to go. I plan to install a blackout billet grill and 305/45ZR22" tires soon and slam this truck. I still have to do some brake upgrades and a 1 ton axle swap. I know as soon as a put the nearly 500lbft of torque to the ground I'll snap the stock axle like a twig. This engine's torque at just 2000rpm is 402lbft. That's why I rips up tires so bad.

    Latter I'll drop in a 6L80E.
