This LMM is a daily driver, errand runner, tows 25+5 gooseneck equipment trailers, 5th wheel toy trailers, boats, bumper pull toy haulers, RZR 4 doors on the bed, and anything/everything else you can imagine. All the upgrades that have beed done to the truck are for reliability and towability.

And now for the good stuff. Tow big? Go Big! Big air, big fuel for the tow beast, with a block that will take the abuse and keep asking for more!

Some of the details:

Built Short block...
LML block, LB7 crank, Carillo Forged Rods, Mahle Cast delipped pistons, keyed crank/cam, ARP studs, SoCal Stage 1 heads, Super Damper, Socal 3388 cam, DmaxStore tig'd water pump, new oil cooler. Getting DDP injectors, HSP overstock twin kit (factory battery location), with the HTT ProMax 64 turbo as the valley charger and a HTT Protow 476 SX-E turbo feeding it.

What does it take to use a LML block in a LMM you ask? No worries, we got you covered...
You will need the LML oil pressure sensor with pigtail as its a different size bore than the LMM and prior sensors.
You will also need the LML turbo oil feed line.
And you will also need to modify the LMM dipstick tube as the routing is different due to the block webbing on the LML's.

So why use a LML block? A bit stronger with more webbing, and the oil feed comes off a different location instead of the valley off the cam journal feed.

Note the red plug, which is where the oil for the turbo comes from on the LML block.


In this pic you can see the mounting points for the dipstick tube will need to be modified.

Opened up the ports on the exhaust manifolds slightly to match the SoCal heads. Left plenty of area for the gaskets to seal on.

So got a call about the oil sending unit when using a LML block in a LMM.

The thread size on the block is bigger on the LML, so you need to use a LML sending unit. LMM wont work, however the connector is different, so you need the connector, then cut it, and splice it in place of the LMM connector. And you are set.

Here is a pic of it...
