Default The Last Truck I'll Ever Own... Build

I've owned the truck since new.**Purchased in in December of 2009, at about the 50k mile mark I did that thing with the stuff and the computer thingy and enjoyed the truck.**Well here I am at 170k miles with two cracked pistons.**Number 2 and number 8.**Not really wanting a $700-$1200 truck payment I've decided to go the re-build route.

I'm having TierOne Diesel in Rockingham NC do the build.**I've known those guys for about 4 years now and am very confident in their abilities.**They use Rankin Race Engines in Laurel Hill for all the machine work.

The goal of this build just as the title suggests is that I want to have a RELIABLE truck that will last me at least another 10 years.**Yes, yes I know.**The 6.4 isn't the engine for that.**I figure if I get another 170k miles out of it I'll be happy.**I'm sure that with what we're doing to the engine and with good care and maintenance I'll get more than that.

The List...**So far here's what we're doing;

FULL rebuild of the engine, any suspect parts will not be reused. To include the block and the heads (we're not that far yet).

Mahle HD International Maxxforce 7 Pistons, delipped, and fly cut
Wagler Connecting rod set
HD Lifters
Stage 1 Cam
Rudys Up Pipes and Manifolds
AirDog 4G Low Pressure Pump
Side Action Diesel Fuel Bowl bye bye
Industrial Injection Stage 2 Turbos (58mm High Pressure and 71mm Atmo)

So I've got two questions.

Should I add a Wastegate or a BOV to the build? If so, which would be better for the application?

If I should add either, who's is best? I see lots of Wategates, H&S Motorsports, EDE, RCD, who's is best? I'm hesitant to use anything from Elite for the build due to the potential for delays on the build waiting on parts from them. That's the reason we're not using their turbos. The kit from H&S seems very basic, and the kit from RCD looks sick. Thoughts?

I'm also open to any other suggestions for the build. Things you might do, or might not do. I only want to do this once. Currently the motor is at the machine shop so I've got a little more time for minor changes.

Nice looking build bud! I would ditch the air dog and get a fuelab, and also grab some side action diesel valve springs and pushrods while your at it. It's easy to float the valves with the stock springs.

I would do fuel lab or aeromotive for a lift pump, I would add the springs and pushrods like mentioned also. Rcd has great stuff so I’d go for there wastegate setup and I’d forget about the industrial injection turbos and go with rcd or elite since there tried and true. Also studs if you didn’t have them down. I’d check with Brenton at Sideaction for his lifters.

Even though they are the HD’s I’d go ahead and coat the pistons too.

Studs are part of the build for sure, just forgot to list them.

What gives between AirDog/FASS or Fuelab? My understanding is that the AirDog 4g is much better then the first gen AirDog stuff. Is the Fuelab $500 better then the AirDog?

The pistons are in fact coated, forgot to mention that as well...

I will have them add the RCD springs, I'll check with him on the lifters but they may already be RCD, and I can't find pushrods on RCD's site, are they still making those?

Personally I'd save the money and skip the connecting rods.

The carnage.

The piston pictured is number 8 which was the worst.

The pushrod pictured was rubbing on some of the casting from the cyl head.

The damage from the cavitation in the water pump wasn't too bad.

Skip the wastegate and get good tunes. The gate is not needed. Don't bother with the BOV, they are a pain in the ass and cause leaks down the road. The industrial turbos are great and reliable. Only thing with them is they don't produce as much power as other brands but they just work. I've been hearing of some issues with side action diesel HD lifters lately. Most issues are to do with needing shorter pushrods with them. Any more questions feel free to ask.
