he spent at least 30k.... so if you double that it's gotta work!

But he's got a junkyard full of candidates! He'll disappear like all the other dreamers soon, and the VK56 will be the biggest pile of crap. It's obvious he hasn't done any research on this project. This is just another LS engine build with tons of aftermarket support...not. He might have better luck selling this idea to the FB brainiacs.

Keep it up, man. I want to see it happen. I'm on the nay-sayers side on trying to boost a VK56, but if you want to do it and can afford to do it have at it. It's your money and time, not theirs. Just swapping the VK into a Ranger is going to give good power to weight ratio. My truck's not dyno'd, but my butt dyno tells me mine is in the neighborhood of these newer trucks with the 390HP engines (Titan and RAM, 2015 or older Titan doesn't stand a chance). That's just with CAI, exhaust, and tune. 400-ish HP in a 3500 pound truck is making some moves.

We're gonna start with 4-5 psi per bank, nothing crazy, and dual intercoolers, gonna try and make a new pcm with a writeable pcm to put in so that we can ignore a lot of unnecessary stuff like tranny info and such since it's mounting to a manual trans

The whole point is something different and new, coyote swaps been done, ls done, 5.0 etc.....
It'll be different alright. VK56 guys are scratching their head "like why'd he use a VK56".. and other guys are scratching their head "what's a VK56"..

I'm going to set a reminder in my calendar to check this thread in a year to see pics.

Pretty sure if you just make sure you stay consistent with the VK56 generations you're good, but I'm not as much of a gearhead as some others on this thread.

IIRC the 2004 is different than the 2005-06. In 2007 they made the intake manifold bigger and added VVT. I think the hard part is going to be having the VK sensors to talk to whatever you decided to use for stand alone engine management.

Some guys have modded the intake and run a 90mm throttle body.

Im looking over the engines and do you think I should just put standard sprockets in that match and just make the motor non vvt? For start I will but for the final product?
