  • On my way to a new motor

    Well as many of you know last year I had a major catastrophic event that destroyed my transfer case and transmission.....https://www.roadstarclinic.com/forum...-work%E2%80%A6

    Well this morning I'm on my way to see Duke in NM. We are going to install the new 110 Big Bore, transmission and transfer case. Left at 2am for the 17 hr trip......Super Excited.....oh and I got a new truck right before the trip....

        You are gonna love the 110. Where did you get it? Or is Duke building it for you? What goodies are you putting on it? Carb, cam, ported heads?

        That bright red truck will let all the coppers know where you’re at

          Home/hand poeted heads? Still stock springs/retainers since stock cams?

          Any changes to ignition (via Dyna 3000 box) needed?

            Dyna 3000 will be needed for timing curve changes due to the higher compression.

            Oh yea, Dyna 3000. Going to set at 28B, thinking that will be good.

          Love the truck! Prefer it over the old one, only because it looks pretty beefy for offroad use.

          You guys going to shoot some video so you can share?

          The gas for the trip down there and back will be more than what you paid for the engine I’m guessing

            You can't blame them. If you find yourself screwed in OR, come on up to MT. I know a few reputable shops that do great work and will do it. Powerstroke guys too.

          They're sold out for 2022. I'd never heard of one until now. Reports say the Maverick gets 40+ MPG city! At an intro price of $20k that's pretty impressive. Wonder what they'll be next year? They start taking orders this summer.

              I think the 4 cylinder hybrid gets the 40 MPG. Great vehicle for us as well. We'll have to see what the price does on the '23's. If we even HAVE a '23...
