1,000 HP Delivery Truck! You Have To See This Ram

Most companies use their parts trucks as tools. They may take care of them mechanically, but they work the ever living you know what out of them. So, when we came across a thread on the Cummins Forum documenting RevMax Performance Converters’ build up of their parts truck, we had to look.

initial single

Originally, they opted for a big single but they quickly realized that there isn’t enough boost down low and switched to compounds.

Sure enough, they plan on building their parts truck and laying down some serious horsepower with it. Now this isn’t a work truck turned toy either. A number of times during the build, choices were made because they plan on keeping the truck in service for deliveries.

Next time they are late for a delivery, they really will have no excuses with over 1,000 ponies under the hood.

The overhaul started in late June/early July and has progressed nicely over the past six months. The truck is a 2008 Ram 2500 that has a 6.7-liter Cummins under the hood. Since the truck is a delivery truck, it is 2WD, has a regular cab, sports a long bed, but only has 140k on the odometer.

This all started thanks to RevMax’s 68RFE program getting a substantial makeover. The goal is to become the fastest delivery truck in the country according to the post. The plan is to utilize the help of Hamilton Diesel for the engine, RevMax for the tranny, and then source everything else locally in Charlotte, NC. When the truck is complete, they hope to be in the 10 second range and have more than 1000 ponies under the hood.

We hope you check out the thread here, but a quick synopsis of the current setup (it has changed a few times as any build like this does) is:

The new large compounds going in.

Transmission

  • Revmax Signature 1000 68RFE w Manual Lockup
  • Billet input shaft
  • Billet Input hub
  • Billet flexplate
  • Customer Revmax Stage 5 triple disc billet converter

Why a 1,000 and not the 850? “The 1,000 runs different line pressure settings and overall line pressure.” Now the 1,000 isn’t recommended for daily driving, but 1,000 hp is recommended for daily driving. This build is about having fun and it appears that RevMax is having fun.

SRT10 hood goes on to give the truck a more sporty appearance.

How much? “[We have been] running the new twin setup around town and it is amazing! Spool up is instant and blows the tires at 60mph!!!”

The major issue they are currently having is traction. “[We are] having SEVERE issues getting traction.” While getting sideways is always fun, that probably isn’t the best idea for a delivery truck. Normally, with this type of power, major rear suspension changes would be made, but “we are limited for suspension and tire since this will still be our delivery truck! We aren’t back halfing the truck as we need a bed,” stated RevMax.

They are running Calvert Racing’s CalTracs and QA1 adjustable shows. The truck, also, features a full roll cage, but that seems to be about it for traction/safety modification.

image_1418169916957While this may be a “the truck is a tire frying beast,” it still needs to look good. A SRT10 hood was installed. The bumpers, grill, and other components were painted white. Even white Rigid Industries fog lights and LED light bar were installed. There are talks of adding a wrap down the road, but for now, it is all white.

If driving around in a high power delivery truck wasn’t cool enough, they interior audio system is being replaced. A set of 6.5” Polk Audio components are mounted up front in the doors and 5.25″ components are mounted behind the seats. To give the sound more dimension, two 10″ JL Audio W1’s subs are being mounted in a custom box that is being made to work around the roll cage. Powering everything is a JL700/5V2 amp.

There are a ton of updates being made to the post and lots of discussion. All we have to say is, are they looking for a parts driver?
