Fawking sweet,

I've never really been a fan of the Exploder look. You managed to give it a mean look though. Must be the combination of the 54's and rocks lol. anyways sick build. its gonna be a

That's funny 'cause I always said the same thing about the Sport Tracs... I think they are ugly also. I think the Chevy Colorado actually has a better look but if I was building a Chevy I would have to kick my own ass. It was more of a decision of function over looks. I think 54's and Rocks could make anything look good. Well almost. Pontiac Aztec would still be ugly.

You sure about that???








Okay, good call.

Also, OP, is that a B-Series I see in the corner of that one picture? What's the plan for it?



Okay, hijack over...back to the IDI SportTrac wickedness

It is a B. And it will soon be living under the hood of my buddy's '88 F350 4x4.

Lucky! Would love to do a cummins swap in my 87 4door 350 but for the going rate of a cummins and all the parts needed I can buy a running 2nd gen dodge.

Ya, this one won't be cheap. Picked up the engine for $1500 and when I removed the head found it had been stored with the intake off and #3 and #4 were filled with water. So it needs a total rebuild and two cylinders sleeved.

I seriously considered putting a P-Pump Cummins in the Sport Trac but there was no way it was going to fit under the hood without major modifications to the firewall and cab. I am however working on picking up a P-Pump from a 9.0 litre International V8 to try to install on my 6.9.

Meh, EVERYONE does a Fummins....don't be like me, err, everyone.

However, I've always wanted to p-pump an IDI....drop the compression a bit, put the biggest injectors I could, and a triple turbo setup with twins feeding a big single....(rattle, lope, rattle rattle, lope) VERY interested to see where this goes...

I've heard that the bottom end of an IDI 6.9 is only good for 600-700 hp. Over that it pushes the main bolts out of the block. I'm looking for something a little more sensible. Maybe 450-500 hp at the flywheel with a single turbo.

I used to be HUGE into IDI performance when in college (and when my Fummins was yet to be and still purring a 7.3 NA with every non-turbo power trick known to man, aside from a cam). There was a sketchy shop up north, around Michigan I believe, and he claimed to get over 400hp regularly out of the IDI's. He would stud them and claimed to run nearly 25 psi of boost on the stock 21:1 compression without cracking the pistons. High compression makes decking and studs a must unless you shave the pistons or get low-comp slugs. There used to be hopped up head gaskets (copper maybe?) but I haven't seen them since that Michigan guy's website died. I have also read about the bottom scattering, and I also read just as much about block flexing/cracking when making power at higher revs.

I've never seen a buildup of an IDI with the P-pump though, so I'm excited to see what you come up with.

Seems someone has done it, but details are as always; lacking.

EDIT: in the pics you can see a huge main girdle between the block and pan.

Nice find! I had always heard the legend of that F-100 but never saw engine pictures. Nice to see some hard evidence behind the mystery. The negatives also say "6.9" on them too, so I'm guessing they favored the slightly thicker cylinder walls....?

That's a little over the top for me. That engine probably has more money into it than I'll have into my whole truck. In the last year I've scrapped 3 running, rebuildable 6.9s... so the next one I come across will go on a stand and get used for all my mock-up. I'm gonna get the truck running with the engine I have now and the P-pump engine will be the next project. Those pictures make me wonder how close some Stroker manifolds would be to bolting up... I need to check into that.

Finally got to work on the truck today. I've been super busy at work so I havn't even looked at it for a couple weeks. I got my rear shock mounts installed. I didn't have o-rings for my wheels when I installed the tires so I have to break down my wheels and tires to install the o-rings and then I can cycle my suspension and check clearances. I'm not looking forward to wrestling those heavy ass wheels and tires around... I'm just a little guy...

I worked on mounting the rear fenders too... Stared at it for a while and I'm still not sure how its gonna work. I'm worried about the fenders cracking or being in a bind. I have to buy some isolators and I'm thinking one mount in the rear near the tail light and two in the front, one at the top and one at the bottom.

So are those big meats gonna push into your beds sides when you articulate ?

Or will the tire clear over the top of the fender at full stuff.

I admire your progress... Wish I was motivated to work on my junk.

I actually plan to enter TTC when it's all done. I was pretty excited to hear the new rules, it wasn't anything I was planning, just a happy coincidence.
