Photo 3/15 | 6 Inch Precision Metal Fab Lift | Dorian’s F-250’s modified stance is made possible thanks to a 6-inch lift from Precision Metal Fab. The lift kit also features extra-long link bars, a Stage 3 track bar, and dual BDS steering stabilizers.
Photo 4/15 | 6 7l Power Stroke Diesel Engine | The 6.7L engine in Dorian’s ’12 Ford F-250 is capable of some pretty impressive power numbers, considering its limited but well-thought-out modifications. The most noticeable change is the single turbocharger setup from Maryland Diesel Performance, which was color-matched to the truck and is largely responsible for the rig’s 647 hp and 1,012 lb-ft of torque.
Photo 5/15 | 66mm Borgwarner Turbo | Stock 6.7L turbochargers on ’11 to ’14 Super Duty Fords are known to be problematic and horsepower-limited, so a 66mm S300 turbo from BorgWarner now provides airflow to the engine in Dorian’s F-250. At 44 psi max boost, the new ’charger’s compressor speeds are relatively moderate.
Photo 6/15 | S And B Intake | The stock airbox can create a restriction once a turbo upgrade is performed, so Dorian installed an S&B intake that draws air from the front fender.
Photo 7/15 | K16 Injection Pump | A second K16 high-pressure injection pump is nestled under the intake piping and keeps plenty of fuel going to the stock injectors. The installation kit is by H&S Diesel Performance.
Photo 8/15 | B And W Drop Hitch | Another key to responsible towing is this multi-ball B&W drop hitch, which has been adjusted all the way down to keep the proper tongue weight on loads Dorian hauls.
Photo 9/15 | Amp Research Step | For a cleaner look that still accommodates shorter passengers, Dorian removed the stock running boards and installed these Amp Research powered steps, which extend out when the doors are opened.
Photo 10/15 | Fox Shock Installed | The F-250 rides quite well considering its lifted profile, and Fox 2.0 shocks are a big part of why it maneuvers down the freeway as comfortably as it does.
Photo 11/15 | American Force Independence Ss Wheel | American Force was Dorian’s first and only stop for wheels, as the black 22x12 Independence SS models complement the body’s gray color very nicely.
Photo 12/15 | No Limit Intercooler | Some items may look like they came from the factory, but they didn’t. This intercooler from No Limit Fabrication installs in the stock location yet has much greater flow potential than the stock air-to-water intercooler.
Photo 13/15 | Airlift Air Springs | Since Dorian tows with his truck quite often, a set of Airlift air springs is used for keeping the front end level. Not only is it safer, but it also keeps the truck’s headlights out of the eyes of oncoming traffic.
Photo 14/15 | Mag Hytec Diff Cover | When covering thousands of miles a year, the life of the transmission oil, engine oil, and even gear oil is very important. A Mag-Hytec rear differential cover is used to help increase the life of the gear oil by reducing the operating temperature in the rear end.
