Truck: 2008 Chevy 3500
Scope of Work: Turbo Kit, CP3, EGR Delete, Tranny, Lift, Exhaust, Gauges, Tune
Synopsis: Norrie was not content on having a stock daily driver. He wanted his truck to look, sound and perform good. We came up with a build that gave him the performance he wanted and also the looks he desired.
We started by scrapping the stock duramax turbo and swapping it with a GT4094VA Turbo Kit. We also added a 42% Over Industrial Injection CP3 pump. To top off the motor performance we added a Lloyd Cusotms EGR delete kit and an EFI Live tune with a DS5 switch. For looks we outfitted the truck with a Fabtech 8” lift kit with resevoir shocks. 35” Toyo M/T tires and a 5” side exhaust system top off the looks of this Duramax. Inside we added Autometer gauges … Read More »
Truck: 2003 Chevy 2500
Scope of Work: Twin Turbos, Motor, Tranny, Water Pump, Exhaust, Roll Cage
Synopsis: Nolan came to us with a request for a 9 second truck. Being speed junkies, we smiled and got right on building a truck for Nolan that would compete well in the NHRDA circuit.
We got started by gutting the motor and replacing it with a 7.1L SoCal Stroker Motor complete with Stage 2 heads and ARP Studs. To feed this motor we put in 100% over injectors with Twin CP3 pumps and a set of hand built custom race twin turbos. To keep things cool we added our spec Lloyd Customs electric water pump it with electric fans. A BD Intercooler, Pro-Fab Manifolds and up-pipes plus a custom single stack exhaust system helps with air flow. Because Nolan wanted to play in the 9s, we … Read More »

Synopsis: Pat wasn’t an ordinary customer looking for added performance. No he wanted a truck that could run with the big boys. We politely obliged to his request and began building his GMC into a race-ready beast.
We began by tearing out the stock motor and replacing it with a full race spec 6.6L Duramax engine with Stage 2 Heads and ARP Studs. Spooling this engine are a set of custom hand built towing twin turbos. To get the air moving we mated the engine with some Pro-Fab manifolds and up pipes. To make sure the power stays planted firmly tot he pavement we put in a race spec Allison Transmission with a 6-Speed Conversion. For added stopping power we mated a BD Exhaust Brake to this beast. Inside we … Read More »
Vehicle: 2007 Ford F-350
Scope of Work: Air Suspension, Dual Exhaust, Intake, Turbo, EGR Delete, Studs
Synopsis: Justin didn’t want to have an ordinary Ford Powerstroke when he first purchased his ride. The end goal was to customize this family hauler enough to make it unique and stand out from the crowd. What ended up was a pickup truck on steroids.
Justin wanted an air bag suspension system like no-other to help tow his toys. He opted for a 4-point custom system with a Voltair Custom Compressor that will lift and lower the vehicle at all tires. Add in 22” Jesse James rims with Toyo Proxy tires, a custom red pearl flake paint job with airbrushed hood, a custom dual exhaust system, AFE intake, Hybrid Turbo System, EGR Delete, ARP Studs AND a custom SCT Tune – the end result is a family … Read More »
