Well, easiest way to to pics and vids are with photobucket. Record any snippet of video you want, upload it photobucket. Accounts are free. Then once is loaded, all you gotta do is paste up the img code and it embeds into the post, no having to upload them as attachments to the DTR server.

Got It!!

Well, since every single video I see on U-Tbe, CF, and all other places is terrible I will attempt to make a good video that truly displays the sound of this truck.

Not talking bad about the other effort put into displaying their trucks but lets be honest, the videos are not great.

MY TRUCK SOUNDS LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I assume that most computer's will not depict the sound coming from this exhaust so this is what I will do.

I am going to make a video at start-up, backing out of the driveway, and slamming it at full throttle. Then I will try to get some FULL Throttle passes on an open road ending with some parked revves. What do you think?

Sounds good to me! I can't wait to here that sucker. I have a pile of similar parts at home waiting for my return in May.....a preview would be awesome!

Oh and I agree with the YouTube videos.....they work but not always the greatest.

B that sounds like a good idea. When ever I get home in a couple of months, I do something similar with the 2nd gen swap to compare sounds.

That sounds great! My wife is very good at photography and video so I might get some help, plus she still has my 1/8th mile videos from a few weeks ago. I can't launch now as hard as I did with the stock turbo because if my boost is too high I will shatter my input/output shaft due to stock configuration. I'm working as fast as I can with pics and video so please bear with me.

Thanks for all the support and help during this build!

Fellas, Been working hard lately but my wife took some videos on the truck. I used an Iflip, a Canon D60, and a standard video camera. We will see which one is best and get the video on ASAP. Hope to have it on here by Tuesday.

My wife is working the audio editing to ensure the best digital computer audio capability possible. Maybe finally someone will have a good sound to listen to.

Gentlemen, I wanted to share some other information regarding the exact measurements when I installed the shocks, Hell Bent leveling kit, and 1" Top Gunz Customs rear lift blocks.

Prior to lift (Nitto Dura Grappler's were Brand New at time of all measurements.) All measurements were made from the top of the tire tread to the bottom edge of the factory fender flare.
Front Left: 8 1/8"
Rear Left: 10"
Front Right: 8"
Front Left: 9 5/8"

(After Lift)
Front Left: 10 3/8"
Rear Left: 11 1/8"
Front Right: 10 3/16"
Front Left: 10 7/8"

Basically the truck was exactly 1" shorter in the rear without the lift blocks and about 1 3/8" out of level. Now the truck sits almost 100% flawlessly level.

Here are some pics of my new B&W Tow and Stow 9.5" adjustable hitch. I originally ordered the 5.5" adjustable but it was still WAY TO HIGH even at its lowest setting.

WITH THE 5.5" drop, at the hitches lowest level, the top of the ball was exactly 22.5" off the ground. That caused both an enclosed motorcycle trailer, utility trailer, and 21' Travel Trailer to ride upward on the hitch.

WITH THE 9.5" drop, with 3 additional adjustments left downward, the top of the ball measured 20" exactly from the ground. RIDE HEIGHT PROBLEM solved. I can still go down 3" if I want to.

FYI, With my set-up and the ball all the way at the lowest setting, the bottom ball is still 9.5" off the ground. Unless you plan on taking the rear axle out, this thing will not scrub the roadway. OFFROAD, this thing might get in the way. Here are some pics.

New2diesel, you going to upgrade the transmission? How heavy are you towing? I'm so close to pulling the pin on a built transmission. I have most of the parts to get my truck going to put up the power into my truck just don't know if the aftermarket transmission would hold up.

I am 100% positive that I am upgrading the transmission. (Full Suncoast M3GA).

On Thursday I am going to attempt an 1/8th mile run prior to installing my new transmission. The reason I say attempt is due to the fact that I will have to be very careful not to snap an input/output shaft. If I do, oh well, cause the suncoast is already paid for.

As far as towing, the heaviest thing I have towed is a 19' TT. It weighs 4000lbs empty so loaded out I am probably at 5500 MAX with the wife and 2 kids. The truck does perfect with that load. With the stock turbo, with cruise control set to 65-70, on hills the MM would show 30PSI. With the IISS66, in the same conditions/same roads/same hills, she never got over 14PSI. I currently have the wastegate set to 45PSI, but, once the trans is installed I will bump it up 10 additional PSI.

After transmission, I will be installing a dual fueler and begin a twins setup using the IISS66 as the bottom turbo. That ought to be fun.

You'll probably have tons of turbo with just running the S366, just might want to install a bypass extrenal gate just so you don't break the S366 on a big boost pull.

Hopefully suncoast can come thru with there claims on a 1000rwhp transmission. Time will tell, hopefully they can.

The rumor is aisin is suppose to hold up better than the RFE68 for big power.
