JON CAIN’S 900-HORSE ‘16 F-350 TOW RIG

Thanks to class-leading towing and payload capacities, a stout TorqShift transmission, and the proven 6.7L Power Stroke under the hood, Ford’s Super Duty seems to have it all these days. Still, that’s not enough for some. Even though Jon Cain purchased his ‘16 F-350 specifically for tow duty—and had no intention of going beyond a simple exhaust system and a tune—he found himself upgrading turbochargers just 10,000 miles later. Soon after that, things snowballed into a full engine build, with big fuel, compounds, and a built transmission all proving irresistible. “I’ve got ‘vehicle performance addiction,’” Cain told us. “I’ve had it since I was a teenager.”

Midwest Long Block

Knowing the 6.7L Power Stroke’s factory rotating assembly would never hold up to the kind of power he planned to make, Cain turned to his friends at Midwest Diesel & Auto for a full engine build. After the truck was dropped off at Midwest’s Athens, Illinois, location, the low-mile 6.7L was pulled, torn down, and rebuilt with some of the best hard parts in the industry. A balanced rotating assembly is made up of the factory crankshaft, forged-steel rods from Wagler Competition Products, and coated, standard-bore OEM pistons. Valvetrain upgrades include a Stage 1 cam from River City Diesel, Midwest HD valve springs, and Midwest chromoly pushrods. To keep the head gaskets alive with big boost in the mix, the heads were O-ringed.
