so in your opinion, would this build be "the best bang for the buck" as far as performance goes? not really a big tower, not a drag racer. but I am looking to have me an awesome truck, and would really enjoy spanking diesels.

Such a simple question but not one that's easy to answer.

To spank diesels you need torque, which a PD blower will deliver. The caveat to that is the blower is so small that you will have to over spin it just to get 6psi from it. If you used a larger blower with lower IAT2 temps then you can safely make more power on whichever gas you choose to run.

A well balanced motor with "enough" power up top but has plenty of torque down low that isnt "peaky" will give you great benefits. To accomplish this a small Eaton M112 from a lighting wouldnt be my first choice.

A set of ported PI heads with a Twin screw is what I would be looking into for what your wanting. It wont make the most power it can but it will make a nice solid "flat" and use-able torque curve while maintaining plenty of power up top to get out of its own way at highway speeds and pulling a trailer.

are you recomending porting the existing heads and keeping the stock cam for this setup?and would this mainly amplify the current stock powerband and not alter or shift it in any way? I'm not really a gearhead or a expert on V-10's or mechanics in general.

Basically, Yes.

I would port the stock PI heads and use a small whipple. Adding a larger Whipple would give you the biggest jump in power without altering to many of the things you like.
