Photo 2/13 | Ford 6 0l Diesel Engine | In the diesel industry, Ford’s 6.0L Power Stroke engines are known for having stout factory bottom ends, and the one in Justin Gerebizza’s ’05 Super Duty is no different. The untouched, 180,000-mile short-block has held up fine thus far to all the truck’s added power. Up top, the heads are anchored to the block via ARP 2000 head studs, and they house a set of Maryland Performance Diesel 275/100 conventional fuel injectors. A Thumper II high-pressure oil pump from River City Diesel meets the injectors’ lubrication demands.

Photo 5/13 | Fixed Geometry S467 Turbo | In order to maximize horsepower potential and reliability, Justin got away from running a variable-geometry turbocharger. Even though the truck was once equipped with an S366, this fixed-geometry S467 from Dirty Diesels now sits in the lifter valley. The S400-frame turbo features a billet 67.7mm compressor wheel and a 0.90 A/R turbine housing, and it mounts via a T4 turbo pedestal from Maryland Performance Diesel. A massive, 5-inch downpipe routes exhaust to the stack in the bed.
Photo 6/13 | Sinister Diesel Regulated Fuel Return | Sinister Diesel’s regulated fuel return ensures the air-free fuel reaches the injectors without any problem. Justin keeps the Aeromotive regulator set at 65 psi.
Photo 7/13 | Heavy Duty Ficm | A 58-volt, heavy-duty fuel injection control module (FICM) from Swamp’s Diesel adds that little something extra to the truck. The higher voltage FICM sends a more precise, efficient pulse to the injectors for improved throttle response, better cold starts, and a few additional ponies.
Photo 8/13 | Sinister Diesel Coolant | To keep debris from plugging up the oil cooler, Justin installed a coolant filtration system from Sinister Diesel. This is a must-have item for both modified and stock 6.0L engines, as it removes the larger contaminants from the cooling system.
Photo 9/13 | Boost Gauge | A steering column-mounted Auto Meter boost gauge keeps tabs on the S400. At the track and on the street, the needle nearly touches the 50-psi mark at full tilt.
Photo 10/13 | Cts Insight Edge Tuner | While an Insight CTS device from Edge Products monitors all the 6.0L’s OBD II data (transmission, engine and coolant temp, and such), the truck’s PCM is SCT calibrated by Innovative Diesel.
Photo 11/13 | Fass Fuel System | Supplying the healthy 275cc injectors with plenty of diesel is a 220-gph Titanium Series fuel system from FASS. It’s mounted next to the fuel tank, yet hidden from view.
Photo 12/13 | Nitto Nt420s Tire | A set of NT420S Nitto tires provides the grip the truck needs for hooking up on the street. At the track, they’ve propelled the nearly 8,000-pound Ford to a 12.6-second quarter-mile at 106 mph—and on a soft launch. The all-black look is completed thanks to a set of 20x12 Hostage wheels by Fuel.
Photo 13/13 | 2005 Ford F 250 Interior | The original interior is in darn good shape for a 10-year-old, 180,000-mile truck. To us, it proves Justin pays just as much attention to detail when it comes to the F-250’s cab as he does to its exterior.
