If the block can be redone to 15mm theres a good chance 9/16 is possible which I can get the needed hardware for around $500 that is good for 150ft lbs, maybe more if it’s as underrated as the arp 7.3 IDI kit is.

I may do something like that, we will see. This project will stay on the back burner until the superduty and the 68 are done.

But yes, I have no problem switching to 9/16. I was looking at a thread chart at work and 15mm wasn't even listed.

First of all I know almost nothing about these engines. But I can tell you they don’t use GM 2 stoke injectors the injectors are different then the 53-149 series Detroits use as well as the EMD 567-710s. Both are rack controled unit injectors but other than that they are totally different injectors.
