    "TOMBSTONE" 2000 GMC Build

    Please move to correct section (if this one is incorrect)?

    This truck build is basically meant to be a street truck with a pro Touring flavor, but also be able to visit the drag strip at times. But not at all a serious drag race truck.

    Bought this one-owner GMC a few years ago and daily drove it for almost two years when I got the bug to spend some money ;)

    Build plans:

    - Billy Briggs Dart SHP 427, 6-Bolt MAST 245 Heads, all the goods inside, BTR Intake with NW 102mm TB
    - Forced Inductions 88mm Turbo
    - Huron Speed T6 Hot side
    - NCC 3000hp Air-to-Water Intercooler (bed mount)
    - Rhodes 5-Gallon Water/Ice tank with Rule 3700 pump
    - Custom Cold Side
    - Radium 15-gallon fuel cell with triple Walbro 450 pumps (bed mounted)
    - Complete ridetech suspension with 4-link conversion
    - 5-lug conversion all around
    - Mini tubs
    - Custom forged wheels from Schott (20 x 7 front and 20 x 14 Rear)
    - Wilwood brakes all 4 corners
    - Quick Performance 9-inch with 3.70 Posi and 35-spline axles
    - RPM Level 5 4L80E with Console Mounted B&M shifter
    - FTI Triple Disc Converter
    - Pro EFI 128 ECU (stock PCM retained for some functions)
    - Flex-a-Lite Alum Radiator with E-Fans
    - Hydroboost conversion

    We hope to complete the cold side of the turbo system this weekend as well as routing the exhaust through the frame using some oval tubing. Looking to make about 1200rwhp for now, as that is about the limit of this 88mm turbo I have.

    PS: I joined this forum about 14 years ago when I was the project manager for Wheel to Wheel Powertrain (customer builds). Decided to return since I am now a "pro touring" guy

    Sorry I don't know how to make the photos show up in a logical sequence????
