Big Blue Part VI

We've Got Power!

July 2013 Build Brady L. Kay

From The Start

To get you all caught up, our project started when we added a boost gauge as well as an EGT gauge from Prosport's Premium series, gave Big Blue new Hankook tires from its Dynapro series as well as added the Off-Road, 326 Gloss Black Machined Face wheels that are part of the V-TEC line from Vision Wheel.

Other quick upgrades included a Diversi-Tech locking hitch, as well as the BedStep and BedStep 2 from AMP Research. Next we added a beefier starter and alternator from Mean Green Industries, an aFe Power intake and exhaust, plus a performance chip from Wide Open Performance.

In the April issue we worked with Powerlabs Diesel to install some great products from BD Diesel Performance, including the addition of the Boost Fooler and the Crankcase Ventilation Kit. We also tossed the stock boots and upgraded to BD Power's Boot & Clamp Kit.

And in May we hooked up with Adrenaline Performance in Shelley, Idaho, for a transmission rebuild. Our vision for this 7.3L has us taking Big Blue to the next level and we knew we couldn't get there with a stock transmission. While we had it on the lift we also installed a new rear differential cover from aFe Power.

This kit brings tried-and-true stability, strength and caster control over factory radius arm setups...
