Default New Harley Build Advice Needed

Possibly have my stage 1 dynamic Diesel engine for sale in another truck I have.
This engine had;
Dynamic diesel stage 1 kit
Arp 2000 head studs torqued to 275
Ceramic coated delipped .20 over pistons
Mahle clevite bearings
HD lifters
Chromoly pushrods
High rev valve springs
6.0 manifolds and custom uppipes
No limit intake
Cold side pipe
Pusher intake elbow
Stage 1 cam
******* 325 tune.

Was a solid truck and pulled hard..

I have a harley 6.4 all stock that I want to build. I regret the first build I did because only after 35,000km the Hg blew or the heads cracked. And wouldn’t give me heat and pushed coolant. Also the oil cooler clogged. It was my first build. And I want to do things different with this build.

First. What am I missing from my first build I should of had.. and what kit should I get for this engine. Dynamic diesel kit? Or Asheville kit? Or are there any other kits.. with cam pushrods and valve springs preferably.

Second, when should I coolant flush after the build. (I think this is why the cooler clogged) I never flushed it when I first built it, sediment from the block probably clogged the cooler.

Third. Oringed heads? Or not. Is it worth it? I am up in Sudbury Ontario Canada. With NO reputable diesel shops around me. Does ANYONE. Know of a shop down south. Toronto or in Ontario they could hook me up with that would Oring my heads. And check them. And machine the block. I heard Line Boring is key with these engines. But I want reliability. I will be stock fuel and air *for now.
But eventually want some bigger injectors and air. But sticking with a sequential/twin setup. Unless anyone has better ideas.. I’m looking for a reliable 800hp.

Anything else anyone can add I appreciate it. Even small stuff like aftermarket lpfp, fuel bowl ****** stuff I didn’t do before remote oil cooler, I’m talking technical and stuff most people wouldn’t think of doing like I forgot to do with my first build. Thanks!!


Also tranny options.

EDIT* after multiple reviews and multiple readings I will NOT be going with Dynamic Diesel products again.

Thank you all for the warnings.

Is there any other company other than Asheville I can get recommendations from? Thanks.

First stay the hell away from dynamic diesel. I haven’t heard good or bad about Ashville though. Contact kill devil diesel for your engine build. This guy knows his stuff, hence why he still builds monster truck engines like grave diggers. I’d also check with warren diesel for a built 5r trans.

If I’m not misteken, kdd also uses new blocks and new heads on all the builds. He goes through and decks all surfaces, line bores and fully balances the engine. He also has his own springs, pushrods, billet cams, the new jesel rocker system etc. Since elite isn’t in business anymore might can contact Wesley beech with punch out performance, he has a nice lpfs with a fuel bowl del kit.

Okay that’s very good information. I’ll research them, I also heard the same about Choate Engineering.. @white_monster has helped me lots too with decisions and getting ideas. Just want to shout out to him.

I am up in Sudbury Ontario Canada, I was referred by a friend to Scott’s performance diesel in Cambridge Ontario to potentially build it.

Just looking at options. I’d love to trailer it to the States to get one of those extremely reputable shops to build it. Just have to watch Costs, but there’s no penny pinching if I’m building a 6.4 right.. Scott has shown me many builds he has built so far. Pretty impressed. Ive uploaded some of Scott’s builds he sent me.
Says he builds his own piping and does his own machine work.

I totally forgot about choat engineering. He’s just down the road from me too. But, I don’t have any first hand exp with him like I do with kill devil. It might be you could have someone down here build you the engine and have it shipped up to you. I’m sure Shane could even help you if needed with the install etc.

Just to give some feedback here about some vendors. DDPM was very helpful in my build. He is sooo knowledgeable! Even knows tidbits like how the international piston are 5 thou shorter than stock ford pistons. I trusted him with his stage 2 rebuild kit, got the rcd cam upgrade and it runs amazing. A lot of the parts in the kit are Mahle which is the OEM for ford. Even take a look at your pistons when you take them out, it will be molded on the underside. Anyways when it comes to KDD I have to say the customer service is amazing. They really go out of their way to make sure youre satisfied. Which brings me to sending them my custom 100# valve springs. Which were "progressively" wound. The tighter end always goes facing down for many reasons. A couple being weight in motion as well as harmonics. Regardless when i got my new KDD heads they were installed 19 of 32 upside down. Aaannnddd 1 of the springs was their 70lb spring. Looked visually different and measured it in my valve spring compressor. That kinda ticked me off they missed one and had to go digging around their shop to find my custom spring. This set my build back a whole extra week. Thank god for my white paint dot(to mark its direction) which made it easier to find in their shop. Now i wanna mention they made good on this. With different options to revise the issues. So im certainly not badmouthing KDD as they have excellent products and am very satisfied with their heads. But note Jared the owner is obviously not building these things. He has many people working for him, like any good expanding shop! So i just want to clear the air and say they are both amazing companies. Some will have good with one and bad with another. But i do not believe either are bad. No one can expect a company to have a 100% sparkly clean reputation. Do your due diligence, trust your gut and all will work out. Have fun with the build and feel free to reach out. Just did a complete 6.4 build. Full engine, bigger injectors, dual fuelers, fass low pressure fuel, bigger manifolds and uppipes etc, bigger turbos etc.
