King coilovers was bolted into the new location. Out back, a set of lowered Atlas springs and True Bliss traction bars replaced the stock units and a pair of King reservoir shocks were installed. This setup brought the front down almost three inches and the rear is a full four and a half inches closer to the pavement.
Pushing the Power Stroke
Once the suspension was tested and geometry validated, it all came back apart to go to powdercoat. In the meantime, Adjarian needed a little more power out of the 6.7L Power Stroke. Luckily, this wasn’t his first Power Stroke project and he knew exactly what to do. The first call was to Midwest Diesel to order a 66mm turbo kit with stainless steel intake piping. With that on its way, a No Limit Fabrication intake was ordered and installed onto the 6.7L along with a Snow Performance water/methanol kit. Getting that hot turbo exhaust out of the engine quickly was important and Adjarian found the shortest path: through the hood. So a hole was cut and piping was run. Finally, a Spartan tuner allowed Adjarian to pull the full potential out of the turbodiesel. With all that power available with the tap of the throttle, he knew he needed better clamping force and upgraded the stock Ford brakes to Wilwood big brakes.
Old With the New
With the suspension and performance taken care of, Adjarian turned his attention towards the body. This is where he used a
