Hey My name is matt, some people on here might know me. I'm from west bloomfield, I drive an '02 F250 with the 7.3! More than likely it will be lifted in the near tax return future not much else from me. oh and some pictuers, everyone likes pictures...
the dd

the day i turned in my ram lease

and the reason for my name, my never ending project of a camaro

Seeing all these dirty trucks scares me, i'm obsessive compulsive with cleaning and work at a detail shop. That being said, i've had my F250 pretty dirty a few times, it just doesn't stay dirty for long.

-Matt

Thanks it's a never ending project, it's taken me 2 years to get it where it's at. (forged motor, built th350 trans with reverse manual valve body and trans brake. aerospace drag brakes on all corners re ran all the brake lines so the engine can be dropped out the bottom without disconnecting the brakes, 9" rear end with all kinds of expensive suspension parts. hal QA1's on all 4 corners, coilovers on the front. deleted the AC and had the entire engine bay painted a lot of the engine bay was cut up and changed to make everything fit in there. also had the entire car rewired front to back so you really don't see any wires under the hood, and the PCM and big stuff 3 is mounted in the glove box)...

the turbo kit consists of for the hotside 1 3/4" stainless headers, 2 1/2" stainless crossover and a 4" stainless downpipe all the way to the back of the car. the cold side is 3 1/2" aluminum from the turbo to the intercooler, and 4" aluminum from the IC to the throttle body. all of which was built by a couple friends of mine and I

thanks, I used to work on it a whole lot more, it hasn't had much attention lately. between working 5-7 days a week and classes 3 nights a week I don't have much free time, i find myself working side jobs on my days off most of the time for spare cash. I'm looking to do an '05 front end conversion to the ford soon as well. I bought it from the original owner completely stock. i since put a 4" stainless turbo back exhaust on it, cold air intake, tony wildman 6 position chip and a billet triple disc converter and transgo shift kit in it, along with some of the normal high mileage parts (every U-joint in the truck has been replaced and I also replaced both front wheel bearing assemblies and put in warn hubs)

few more of my camaro :) i could have all of my college paid off for the amount of money i have sank in this thing!
notched the frame rail to squeeze the charge pipes through, also cut off the frame horns from the core support forward and boxed them in.

Also filled in where the battery once sat and ran a charge pipe through a cut out and also sank in the coolant overflow can. also the core support was cut out for the radiator to be stood up.

And what it looked like before it was cut into pieces
