What are your differential ratios ? Nice TruckIt's a 4BT hooked to a 4l80E with a Compushift computer. I'm running a volvo intercooler as well. The injection pump is untouched. I'm in the process of building a custom intake manifold, once that's complete I'm going to upgrade the intercooler and crank the pump up. The power is good. My truck weighs 6780lbs. empty, and I can pull Sandstone Mtn.(6% grade for 6miles) at 50mph (900egt post turbo) with a 1000lb. load. I debated between 6bt and 4bt for some time and couldn't be happier with my choice.

There's really no way you could twist off a pinion on a stock truck like that unless you were abusing it. I'm really suprised the u-joint didn't break - those are supposed to be the weak link so things like that don't happen.The pinion it is. The owner of the Ford told me that 3 dealerships have called him bullshit on breaking it (he told them he was in the field) and said no to a warranty claim. He said it's going to cost him $1100 to fix it.
No offense taken. There's no question it’s a horrible idea. However, I was curious as to what might happen, and the Ford owner talked alot of shit, so there comes a time when you just gotta sack up and do something (I was raised on WWF, Wild Turkey and Testosterone). Fortunately, the Ford broke. In the end I think it’s an entertaining video clip.No offense, but truck pulling on a sticky surface is a very bad idea. I would never expose any of my trucks to such strain. I would do such a thing on dirt or mud.
