Also, hey Petey!! That prybar look familiar to you? It makes a great injector puller.

This is the overpriced tool that I needed.. SPX Miller Special Tools , 9010A Fuel Injector Remover Installer

Your stolen prybar did just dandy.. haha.. so bring that tool to RRE and i'll trade you straight up..

Looks like a fun build. My buddy's 12v build is pretty similar that he is putting in his E99. Cost definitely takes a toll after awhile though. We've been working on his for over a year. Hope yours goes quicker than his. Good luck and can't wait to see it come together!

Well jeez.. the cost of internals machining is a bit on the high side.. $900 to polished and shotpeened the rods. $240 to flow test the injectors and make sure they are right. And $800 to rebuild the injectors if need be.. A full head P&P is $2300.. not doing that haha..

Jeez.. horsepower is expensive haha...

My offer still stands, you can get out of this whole ordeal with a simple answer!

Think of what you could do with your 6.4L with all that cash...

Haha.. I could build the truck w/ a 66mm turbo and sell the thing for 30k all day.. I think I'll stick with my dream..

If I do build this truck I will sell it and buy a 6.4 drag truck haha..

The cummins crowd has a massive turn over rate. I just keep searching for deals. I snagged a $2200 htt 66/71/14 turbo for $850 with 6k miles on it. I see dual cp3 setups with pumps for $1700 all the time. Just waiting to snag a deal.

Yeah my buddy bought all new parts rather than getting used stuff like that and worrying about getting screwed. He also got an HTT 66 w/ the stainless turbine housing. Nice turbo, but cost him like $2600..
