A 1,200HP, 2,200 LB-FT ’08 SUPER DUTY

When you’re a horsepower junkie but don’t want to sacrifice the reliability of your $70,000 daily driver, what do you do? You buy a second truck and throw all restraint out the window. This is the path to four-digit power Chad Flynn took with his ’08 F-250, a former plow truck from Cleveland. In the diesel game since the early 2000s, Chad knows as well as anyone that there is a point of no return when modifying your primary means of transportation. Even worse, the quest for more and more power can turn sour if you’re constantly turning wrenches on the vehicle you rely on day-in and day-out. So rather than continue to push the limits of his brand-new 6.7L Power Stroke, he set his sights on making this regular cab 6.4L a 10-second play toy.


With a little over 62,000 original miles on the clock, Chad plucked the 6.4L Power Stroke out of the truck and set to work prepping it to handle big power. Good machine work and proven hard parts served as the foundation for the build. An externally balanced crankshaft, R&R connecting rods with ARP rod bolts, and standard bore, cut-and-coated MaxxForce 7 International pistons from RCD Performance made the list, along with Elite Diesel Engineering’s Stage 1X cam. The factory heads were resurfaced, outfitted with Elite’s Stage 2 valve springs and cryogenically-treated rocker arms, and clamped to the block via A1 Technologies H-11 head studs.
