We have had a bunch of repeat breakages that have tied up the tool room and equipment back there, but I did manage to get the intensifier pistons cut down .098 so I should now have 160cc injectors.

Or I scrapped them lol.

It's worth the 250 dollar gamble to save 1400.

I'm going to go ahead and spam up my own post with some repeats to show how far we've come here,

The part of the build where we go from, "You should scrap that you're stupid" to "OMG looks amazing how" is a fun part :)

All the blasting and coating is done through my personal business GunnMetal Customs

I'll be powder coating the valve covers and turbo outlet shortly.

I don't think I've ever seen a manifold that rusted. Looks like it was washed daily with road chloride.
The head is the part that rusted through lol.

Apparently it's a thing on Powerstrokes. Typically I would just slap this all back together and call it good for twenty more years, but it's a good opportunity.

Powder for valve covers showed up, hopefully in between other projects can get them coated this weekend, or next. I'm also swapping my C10 to Holley EFI and have a 6.0 to wire an

I have the turbo rebuild kit on the way as well, need to get the EBPV plugged and new orings and I hope to get the cab set on mounts by Oct 1
