Hi all
I have had a build underway for a while now but parts sourcing has taken a while. It is finally starting to be reassembled

Basic overview is:
2008 GU coil cab now with 220mm cab extension
Warmed up Duramax dyno'd at 2153nm and almost 700kw
Six speed Allison (trans & convertor kitted to 1000hp
PTO and hydraulic system (if I can make it fit)
Marks Adaptors revised Portals with shimmed rear and TJM front locker
Upgraded drive shafts and axles
Custom entire suspension replacement
Arctic flares
Suspension seats
Trick interior
Custom bar work and tray setup
Etc etc

Will add some pics tomorrow as I just realized they have been moved off my phone

Motor is built by SoCal and tuned via Heath from PID (not Marks). They are good for more power, this is a midrange "towing" package. Five tunes from economy to wild are switchable on the fly.
Factory convertor lockup is also inbuilt so it overcomes some auto issues on descent.
Marks have designed a strong package so I am hoping the weakest point will just be traction.

Sounds like my dream Patrol, will be watching this thread. Are you sure it's 700kw though, surely you mean horsepower.

As a technical exercise I think its brilliant, but I just can't see a practical application for that much power in an off road vehicle. A 1000nm will have you towing any legal size trailer faster than the speed limit in any state in Australia.
