There will be some dyno numbers after break-in and tuning, the goal I'm after is 500whp. Probably make close to 600whp with a corn mix, but that stuff is tough to come by around here. Fuel quality will be the limiting factor I think.

With the stock motor, GT turbo's and the Full Race intercooler, the truck made 387/542.

Got the winch back in, everything worked out just like I planned, which is pretty awesome. Super happy that the truck is getting back to a 100% state.







And I think the truck was finally worthy of a new decal

Wheels balanced and alignment done. Glad to have them checked off the list.

Painted valve covers showed up, so I hope to get them on this weekend.

After all the truck stuff lately, the garage is a huge mess! I'll need to take some time this weekend to get it sorted out and organized again.

I ordered up a couple of gauges to monitor basics. They will be put in a A-pillar mount for now and maybe I'll do some fiberglass work to make up something custom to mount them.

Tuning has been going pretty well. Defintely a one-off set-up, so gotta be patient. Seeing as high as 650crank HP according to the airflow.

Truck goes in for some bodywork and a new rear bumper next week. Some idiot slid across my rear bumper and pushed it a little bit into the quarter panel. Putting on a ADD "Dimple R" bumper to help prevent body damage in the future.

Any more updates? What did you do to address the fuel issue with the gen 1? I have heard the HPFP alone wont solve the fuel pressure dip issue? I would love to get rid of the dip so i can make more "safe" power.
