Owner says: “Horsepower is an addiction there just isn't a cure for. When I read 644 on the dyno, I was happy; it felt like a good stopping point. Yet being so close and so far away from 800 hp…it needed to be reached. I’m planning on dual fuelers and 30-percent-over injectors soon to reach the goal. I love how reliable it is currently as my daily driver. I work on the 6.4L in my free time when I'm not loading bombs and missiles for the Air Force!”
