I also have a knock in the engine in the ranger, and the van needs a roof rack built, and the push bar welded on. But the Buick takes precedent right now.

Iíve got this waiting to go in my F150... ran out of play money so the build is on hold.

Stock is 48mm turbos. These are 72mm EFRís.

Tru dat!

I try to keep my projects "running" so they don't go stale for years. However, you people keep pushing the thoughts of picking up something older.

I honestly don't know what cars like this are worth, I bought it from a friend so I know it is a built motor that started as a brand new crate motor from ford, built tranny and rearend, but I can't actually prove that to a buyer. It was running and driving a year ago after sitting for 3 years, went back 6 months later to get it out to clean up and sell and it wouldn't start, probably a fuel issue. Figure I'll get it running again then list it for 8-10k and see if it gets any bites. Once its running it will just need some tuning work, leaks fixed and trans brake hooked up.

Everytime I see that pic, I cringe because I know that engine is going to scratch the paint.

Details? As much as I would like to get crazy with my SCrew, it is my dad mobile and our primary mode of transportation. I don't enjoy driving the wife's Explorer with more options and comfort features as much as the truck. I need it to stay reliable and a somewhat comfortable ride! It is bone stock at the moment. I still need to get the drop shackles installed and eventually that pedal commander is a MUST, I hate the lag in throttle response.

My truck is a 2011 Platinum with the 3.5 EB. The engine build was going to be a decent short block with stock heads and the Full Race stock location turbo upgrade, ending up around 550 rwhp. Then I got stupid.

This one has a stock crank but that's it. Everything else is upgraded. Deck plate in the block (EB's have floating cylinders), full port job on the heads, nice rods and pistons, high end springs and valves, custom grind cams, a HPFP that costs as much as a used Civic, better injectors, converting to return fuel system with a surge tank, remote oil filters, and on and on and on. I spent easily 4x what I initially budgeted.

The engine is actually headed back to the builder. It's been sitting in the shop for over a year. Currently has stock cams and he's going to install different pistons and the custom grind cams and go back through the motor to freshen up all of the assembly lubes and such. If money starts flowing again, I'm considering a 4.2L stroker but the sane side of me says to just stop and get it installed.

I've got a build thread going on another forum if you care to see more detail. It's gets into the engine and everything else I've done to the truck so far.

Ecoboost Platinum build

Sounds like it is going to be a blast to drive when you get it put together! I'll have to check out the build thread.

My question is, did you take care of the damn oil filter?! I did my first oil change last weekend, and fuck the O-ring replacement on that fucker.

I'm going from stock (have downpipes but that's it), not even tuned, to hopefully 700 rwhp. I'm not going to know what to do with myself.


Yes, I've got a remote oil filter setup in the mix. The filter(s) will hang vertically for clean, simple removal.

I have a 98 K3500 350/4L80E that I'm swapping a 24v Cummins/NV4500 into. I've had the Cummins for 3 years and the Chevy for 2. I've fixed a bunch of boost leaks on the Cummins and within the last 2 weeks finally got the transmission and transfer case out of the Chevy. When it warms up again I'll get the engine out, and then the fun will begin

No SVO, no 65 F100, no Jeep, and no old F150, no jet skis, and no real desire for most projects.

A mostly stock 13 GT that's seldom driven and probably needs a new home before it gets twin turbos.

A new 18 F150 supercrew that will likely get a tune and maybe a cold air kit.

I think my projects will probably just be teaching my boys how to work on whatever beater they get.

I've spent the last few days on big block buick sites reading up on the motor. I need to figure out what rear end I have so I can find a limited slip diff for it.

I need to get my sprint car back running, I only lack ~1500 from having it back together. I just purposefully haven't done it, because it eats money while it's running like a fat kid eats cake.
