Using stock turbo, it will be perfect for the power levels we are going for.

Estimated temps this weekend are in the triple digits. Our mission is to have this boat burning diesel by next weekend and making waves in Lake Tahoe over the 4th of July.
Final electrical, IC plumbing and exhaust system under fabrication.


We will need some Props for testing, (Anyone?)

Penninsular diesel supplied the intercooler it is serviceable. It is the same one they have been running on their 6.5 diesels for years. It will get raw lake water through it. This boat will use a closed cooling system with a Penninsular diesel heat exchanger and oil cooler. Raw water will run through the oil cooler then the heat exchanger next the intercooler followed by the manifolds and up pipes exiting out the exhaust down pipe and through the OE exhaust ports.

Great work so far. That D-max would be such a great engine in an X-star!

I can picture it now......a lifted 2500 Suburban with a D-max pulling a D-max powered X-star!
Can you say "dream rig!"

We are waiting for some more mandrel bends to show up Monday so we can finish up the inter cooler piping,cooling, and exhaust systems. We test fit the motor cover late yesterday and had to loose about 2 inches off of each rear ice chest to clear the air charger and heat exchanger. The fit is very good and this re power looks like it came off the showroom floor.
Our ECM is on its way back from the master of all Duramax tuning (Rob Coddens) we should be uploading some running video by next weekend.
