    so i have been struggling with the idea of making my crew cab short box lmm a diesel race truck but it is fully loaded and way too nice to cut up.

    this is why i bought the following truck:

    2006 regular cab long box 220k mile, 2wd, lbz duramax, W/T

    this truck will probably not see the road very often and be more of a project race truck.

    future plans include:

    Exterior:
    cut the box apart (just run bedsides)
    find a carbon/fiber glass hood
    lower the rear 4"
    lower the front possibly do a 5 bolt or 6 bolt conversion to save weight
    caltrac traction bars
    and some sort of 30-33" slick on 16" wheels
    fuel tank delete/ fuel cell install behind rear axle between frame.
    hoping to make it weigh close too 4500lbs with me in it.

    performance:

    i plan on taking this truck to its motor limits next year, with the following mods:

    single 10mm or 12mm cp3
    220gph lift pump
    100% over injectors
    s472sxe turbo
    SDP t4 install kit
    hood stack
    wagler performance oil pump
    should be right close to the 700+hp mark

    if it hold at that power level it might get a cam and valve springs to get a few more rpm's out of it.

    want to short box it eventually but that's gonna happen in like 2 winters maybe, and yes it will get fiber glass besides, and 4 link, and full cage at that point.

    no pics as i am in middle of no where and wifi is slow as balws

    did egr blocker plate and built my own 5" exhaust from a 5" exhaust for a ccsb lmm $120 so that was fun.

    its loud and stuff so its basically a race truck already

    also ordered a coolant block off for the heater core and a a/c delete pulley

    and a fass 220 gph also tuning from danville.

    if any one has a clue what wheel width and tire width is the biggest i can fit under the truck that would be great.
