i figured seeing as how its halloween time ill name my current project something little more season themed, so Franken-Max is where it'll lie... a little back ground on this project ive started is my daily driver, an 2006 lbz ecsb, that on my way home from a road trip with a truck full of my buddies decided it wanted to split a 1/16 " crack in the first lobe of the crank :D after getting the motor out it got the wheels turning after the p-pumped common rail project thats running wicked strong... lets see what we can do to a duramax by combining all the best of the old in with the new and put it to the test... so that brought on a set of lipless LB7 pistons and gapless rings, reusing my stock LBZ rods an LLY crank and all the rest of my LBZ (heads injectors, ect.) a set of ARP headstuds (WHEN EVER U CAN FINALLY GET THEM AGAIN!!! :mad:) to hold down this Danville stage 2 S475 and some my dragon flow pump to feed some 60% nozzels.... now does this not sound like a box of parts headed for disaster or what!!! All pretty much on a your shits weak dare by a kid with a damn 24 valve :( hopefully you'll tag along to watch this project come to life haha!!!

It's all fun till it blows up. Then you gotta build a stronger one. But why not pop a motor or two if you got the spare time and money

Damn, that's a lotta power on stock rods. I was thinking about doing a budget build with cryo treated lbz rods and coated lb7 pistons. So I'm curious to see how your build works. Haha and yeah it's fun to drive except for in the rain. Other than that it's a blast. Nothin like a big single lightin up.

A 42 pump and 60 overs will move a whole lot of fuel. I spool this s472 just fine and I have a stock cp3 and stock injectors. You're lookin at alot of power

Not to derail too badly, but do you tow at all? Compared to other options, how do you like the s472? Have you ridden in a 366 truck?

I don't tow and I've ridden in 366 cummins. This s472 would tow a boat or something like that just fine. But I live this charger
