Default Dip your truck WHAT!!!!!

Ok. Picked up a salveged 01 with the boring 8.1 lol. Really not that boring just had bad pistons, piss poor heads, restricted intake but other than that it has possibilities for an 7 mpg towing vehicle and 11 unloaded.

So first step fix body with new doors and bondo here and there. Trying the dip your car stuff. Dark gray trimmed out in black flares and bumpers and grill. This will be my first attempt at the dipping stuff. Whatced ton of videos already on it. I do auto body paint though. Should be a breeze

If that works out ok then may find a donor motor (this one still runs great 220k) and build it with the raylar heads and cam. Plus intake work and see if we can blow this Allison up.

It has an 3" body lift. I know don't laugh. I hate them also. Should be a fun project though.

I would imagine it would hold 700 torque no problem

A 100hp diesel tune due to the torque level. You're talking gasser. Torque will be a lot lower.

We'll will see lol. Hopefully get the body work done next two weeks and go from there.

And I agree the torque is lower but the HP Should make up for the losse of torque. Thanks

Not that know of many people with Aly behind an 8.1, but never heard of one not taking everything they threw at it. I knew of one guy with a turbo and another with a supercharger. He was on 53s boggers and drove that thing like a sports car.

Yeah I agree with bac the torque isn't the same. And thanks dozerboy I hope it holds up but we'll see. Lol. Got some used parts on today. I'm really considering that raylar 540 motor.

I was thinking the same thing. S475 is pretty standard with the "little" LS engines as a turbo option, so what would a person use with a BBC?

Itís been a while, but I think he had at 480 or comparable turbo.The thing is is the 8.1 is a lower revving engine so you canít get too crazy or you get a ton of lag. The high horse power guys do twins or supers.
