Homebuilt S475

What do you need to make your own kit and save $500+??


Heres what you need for a LB7..


Intake:... bought from Dmax711 on DuramaxDiesels, built me one complete with clamps, it's 5".
Filter:... Source automotive S&B for 2nd gen dodge 24valve stock/75mm twins, fits perfect.
Turbo: Forced Inductions in Alabama
Coolant block off plug for stock turbo; Tony @ All Season Diesel Performance
ATS A5k 4" downpipe and hot side intercooler tubes with boots, clamps and O-ring
Driver side dipstick from Merchant-Automotive
RDL t4 pedestal, 7" tall
BD Diesel stud and bolt kit(bolts turbo to pedestal, also t4 gasket.
Merchant automotive; Turbo feed/drain kit.

Think that's it...



Still waiting on my S475, but this is the same stuff that I bought instead of paying 3200$+ for a ready to run kit.


here's some pics so far...
















How she sits waiting...

Also, whats the suspension setup you ask? How did he do that?



3" DJM shackles, running 2 leafs in rear on each side, 7* shim to bring the pinion angle back so the driveline is happy.

Front is stock torsion keys all the way down, I plan on buying drop keys and lowering the front 1-1.5" to level the truck.


Caltracs traction bars for the rear. Stay tuned! Rancho "lowered truck shocks" adjustable in all 4 corners.

Crank It Up Diesel centerlink, and tie rod sleeves.


Yes Joe, I sold the GMC 2 months ago to a firefighter guy in Illinois. I miss the truck
