Picked this truck up on trade. It needs ALLOT of work. Currently it has a cracked 53 in it. It runs but not the best. I'm working on getting it to run properly before I decide what to do about the cracked block. So far I've replaced the Cam sensor which fixed the tach and hard start issue. Now the engine light is still on, PO said the light has been on since he had the 1st cracked 53 replaced two years ago. Last night I found the IAT sensor to be unhooked and full of dirt. So far that is the last code in the system. I wasn't able to just hook it up though, somehow the wiring harness is improperly ran not allowing it to get to the sensor. That is next on the list.
Other things I know it will need at this point, front axle rebuild (not sure how extensive yet), rear axle appears to have leaked for quite some time out the pinion seal, pinion is loose, I'm guessing rebuild on that too, rear brakes are sticky and probably junk, fronts brakes are junk, wiring needs a fine tooth comb and clean up, blown/missing fuses galore, rear window needs replaced, dash is junk, carpet is gross, amazingly the driver seat isn't ripped but the foam is quite worn, dome light doesn't work, door seals are toast, tailgate doesn't open properly, tailgate cables are broken, exhaust manifold is junk, tires are junk, I'm sure I'll find more when I have more than two evenings into it.
Its a 2000 QCSB, 229k on the body, 4.10 factory gears, limited slip in rear, supposedly has a ATS stage 1 kit in the factory trans housing (no proof of that though) I can tell the converter is definitely not stock and the shifts are nice and crisp even though I've hardly driven it. Has a raptor lift pump, supposedly 75hp injectors, Edge juice with attitude, pump wire currently not tapped. Supposed new VP not long ago. It did have a P0216 code but it cleared and didn't come back, so far, we'll see about that.
Ultimate plans are to fix all the little issues, lower it, and shoot for somewhere around 650whp (eventually) on fuel with possibly a little n20 on top of that. I've got a good HE351 from a 5.9cr laying around that I'm thinking would be a nice quick spooling setup over a s475 or whatever I can find cheap. Depending on what I find for a block and what happens with the VP pump that is in the truck I might just go P pump but I like the adjust ability of the VP. So I'll just have to see what I can turn up for parts. Basically I'm looking for a fun street strip truck that isn't so crazy I can't drive it and also isn't so expensive It'll never be on the road.
I've always wanted a qcsb 2nd gen street/strip truck ever since I had my 01 long bed.
