And just a comment on injectors. They are all reman's. You can't get new OEM injectors and the jury is out on whether the aftermarket options like Warrens are more reliable.
Asheville used to do their own grinding but the Stage 2 camshaft is a brand new billet one. The Heads are remanufactured in house and are NOT new like the KDD heads. I would have preferred them but at a 12 week lead time, and given the my application for my van is for longevity and reliability and not PUSHING high HP(500 or more), I didn't see the need to spend the extra 1500. I wanted to put that money to new KC Turbo and Injectors.
Here's the link to the "brand new" injectors from Accuratediesel.
Here's what they state,
For many years our customers have asked us for a BRAND NEW 6.0L Powerstroke Injector Option. Finally, it is here! Our new fuel injectors come direct from Ford's original equipment supplier. There is simply no better 6.0L injector anywhere on the planet. For those who appreciate the very best quality, this is it. No part of the injector ever used in any engine anywhere at any time!
Please note that the manufacturer does require a core exchange on these, even though they are brand new 6.0 Powerstroke injectors."
I wanted to do the Owdawg but I can't get that product shipped to CA, unless you can find another way around the system
