Well its not exactly a drop in.



Plenty of room on the Passenger side



Drivers side is a bit tight


Steering is gonna be a problem



The question of whether a hood scoop is needed has been answered

^^^meh, alternators are overrated.


Question though, engineering wise, on the crower rods, is there a reason for the offset on the rod caps, or is it just a clearance issue? Just curious.

The bores on the 6.0 are pretty small, and the crank is very fat, so the rod is made that way to actually fit in the bore.

This will give you an idea of what it will sound like. This is of my f-250 this morning.

This is the first start of the day. The oil isn't even warm yet, but it whistles already. Once it warms up its much more pronounced.

You can hear the miss from the bad injector caused by my fuel pump dieing on the way to Steele AL race

Original vacuum brake booster was a problem, so here is the solution. out of a 03 -f-250. Runs off of the power steering pump.
