ALright, I have been keeping it a secret, but the diesel drag racing 6.0 is a go.

Heres my post about it on our site. Check back for updates, but the build is a go.

I'm sure there are some ' Ranger ' parts laying around from this sites members that might be donated as well.

I DO have some 6.0 powerstroke parts, though, they are factory take-offs from an 06 F350 Dually that had a full banks upgrade put on it.

Awesome guys, thanks. This is a very fluid project right now, but I will be looking for some ranger stuff too. As of now I have 2 short blocks, 2 sets of heads, several turbos, a new tranny and some other stuff too.

Thinking about going with Twins, but its still very early. If we can get the fuel issues solved with the 6.0 it will be good for well over 800 HP

Here is the donor truck. This is when it had a step side bed. It is now a straight bed. Its going to take a huge transformation, and everything is going to be black. We settled on 32 x 17 MT drag slicks. Thats a huge tire, and will lokk sweet under the back.
