Also we are putting a boost controller . Next will be injectors 200hp , valve body , torque converter , fluid , and input shaft going to post up pics of parts and install.

Might also want to consider a smaller injector. I've seen where the 200s and 220s cause problems with the Adrenalines and don't make as much power.

i think the best way to do it, would be to do your tranny upgrades at once, and then wait on the injectors until you get your turbo project rolling. cuz 200's coupled with an adrenaline, is just naughty time. unless you can program your adrenaline to do timing only. then you could possibly get away with it.

i hear ya, i just sold my Evo and STI, trust me, you are going to love that diesel. nothing like spanking stuff 1/2 your weight and gitting 2 to 3 times the fuel mileage!!!! GL lets see some pics.

couple things:
1) you arent going to max out the stock VP (unless you are running a stupid big injector)
2) allison swap? youll see after some reading even the "mighty allison" cant take much more than a tuner...in fact, the fastest street legal dmax out there (im guessing it is still the fastest???) is running a suncoasted 47re (the same tranny you have)

besides that, looks like a decent build, but id reconsider how you go about the turbo/injector...best bet is to do them at the same time

I came from the mr2 turbo crowd. These diesels are so much more simple than a turbocharged 4 banger. I compare them to a two stroke! I had a 97 nopowerjoke and my mr2 8 sold those to buy my '00 cummins. 8 rebuilt the engine iin all of them and the cummins is by far the simplest, beafiest and best supported engine of them all. Just go with what's proven if ur not trying to be an innovator. If u are then make sure u know ur shtuff!:shock:

Since youre in Tampa best thing to do is drop your truck off at Tim Moye Trans and get it done right! Did you get the Pulse with your Adrenaline? If so you can take the fueling out and add timing to help your trans live for a few days.
