Nice job so far and have fun with your project.

If you plan on using it fairly hard, I'd get to know a builder. A decent trans buildup (for ~500 ish) will be min $5K with 3 disk converter, etc. The secret sauce is known by the good builders, so use someone close to you. Its just me, but I wouldn't try to deal with transmission after sale support over the webs and mail.

So not a whole lot has changed, truck runs great and looks awesome still, but its started to hard start in warm weather. It's about 90 every day here and sometimes out of the blue it cranks and starts HARD. I think it's all okay, I think it's just the stock 320k injectors starting to get tired.

I'm leaving for college next friday and its staying at home with my parents for the next 5 years, but college is only 10 minutes from home thankfully! You guys think the stickers can make it 20k or 30k more miles until my we fully restore this think in a year or two? Considering how myself and my father take care of vehicles I think it will be just fine.

You're the guy with the Eaton TVS 7.3?? That truck is absolutely amazing!

I want to go Sam Wyse or BTS, but dont have funds currently and dont have a need as of right now.

So how does it feel to drive a s/c'd 7.3 vs a normal one?

Dorsey Diesel is in Missouri. That is what Irate Diesel uses in their race truck and it is one of the fastest. They also sell them. I am looking at the stage 2 good for 450-600 hp and $3,700. Have a few different options
