I just think it's odd you hold the torch for a 6.0. You just backed up my point by saying both motors must be built. I'm the one who went to school or two years, diesel mechanics and auto tech. And our instructors basically beat it into our heads that 6.0s were shut, and we would see them come in the shop often. His point was proven, right after I graduated I got a job at quicklane, and my service writers both had the same argument were having, John had a king ranch 6.0 f250, and Josiah had a 01 f250 with a 7.3. I'll be honest, i was always a mopar guy when I was a kid, and I'd get a cummins anyways.

Any engine can be built to do whatever you want. Any of the powerstrokes can be built to 1000+ hp. I just think the 6.0 has a better streetable 500hp than the 7.3, when built.

powerstroke doesnt compare to a cummins...but a DT360 international does. Compare those two, and the international will come out on top every time.

Hey, by any chance does anyone have a 32mm long wrench and the water pump holder (its tool 1703 I believe) that I could borrow. I will pay for shipping down here and to ship it back up (or drive it back up if I can make the meet whenever you guys decide when it is). Thank you so much

So I got up and brought the car to the Kansas "inspection" station... what a joke .

Went to Baron to see about getting a second key - apparently you need your registration for the car... well I don't even have a Kansas title yet so that didn't work out

The new depo corners should be here this afternoon

Is this for the fan clutch removal? If so I have the specific fan wrench and holder but they are Kevin's (Sly1types) so you will have to PM him and ask. Last time he let someone borrow his RTAB tool, they bent it pretty bad, then I broke it because it was bent, and I had to buy a new one. So he may not want it loaned out.

Negative. Bird has leaky t tops, hella bad hail damage, the pop ups got destroyed by the previous owners divorcee, however, it only has 99,000 miles, and it's the ls1 v8 with the t56 6 speed. I'm pulling the motor and trans and ecu, and harness, and scrapping the car. In November, I'll be starting "project 357magnum" basically, I'm going the have to pay someone to make me a driveshaft, engine and trans mounts, but I'll do the rest.

Yes it is, I have new pulleys and belts to put on, as well as Im switching from a manual fan to an electric. And I dont really see the pointing in spending $50 on a tool that I will use once. Ill pm him and see what he says

Well the gears are gonna have to wait atleast until I sell my CSL reps. I called Nitto just now to get a price for some NT01's in 275/35/18 and my guy told me they only had 4 left in that size in the whole US. I had planned on ordering the gears first and waiting till I sold my wheels to get new tires but I couldn't pass up the chance of getting these tires. The NT01's have litterely been on back order forever.

I wanted to put on a set of semi-slicks but until I can tow the car to the track it just doesn't make and darn sense.
