Lot of power and torque to push a box that fast.Washed the truck and loaded it up for a trip out to the Salt Flats. Heading out in the morning to watch a friend try to set a personal record of 200+ in the Salty Box Ram 2500. The owner of the truck set the record in its class (D/DT) last month...227+.

Yeah, I wish I had more time to shop around, but this one was available, was guaranteed rebuildable, and was a decent price.Found a new block did ya?
Should be a good one. Are You going to do a build thread ?Yeah, I wish I had more time to shop around, but this one was available, was guaranteed rebuildable, and was a decent price.
I'm doing all the tricks I know (thank you Robyn) to help it but really relying on the third law of diesel dynamics - "An uncracked block tends to remain uncracked".
I feel pretty good about it but we'll see!
I'm doing a full write up with as many details on the peripherals that I can (marine injectors, ARP main studs, thermal coated pistons from @Twisted Steel Performance, etc.) on my site 65TurboGarage.com and I want to get some of that info here too. I appreciate all the info and help that I've gotten here over the years so I try to bring some value back.Should be a good one. Are You going to do a build thread ?
I have a 20 foot utility trailer, the spot where I like to keep it parked is about nine or ten foot wide, between the garage and the fence. The problem is, getting the trailer backed into the spot without tearing up the fence. Neighbors across the street park their cars along their fence so it makes it quite tight to get the trailer jockeyed to align with the gate and the alley way.
Next on the todooo list is going to make up a front receiver hitch for the K3500, then I`ll be able to shove that trailer into position just like driving a car into the alley way. LOL
