Default DT-466 Peterbilt rollback project

New to this site and forums in general, just completed a DT466 Swap to my 2002 Peterbilt 330 rollback tow truck, it started out life as a PacLease box truck with a lift gate in California, in 2010 we purchased it and mounted a Vulcan rollback body on it, 2012 I abandoned the Allison 2000 series and swapped in an eaton fuller 9-speed and last week finally gave up on the Caterpillar 3126 and swapped in a 1992 DT466

Any updates on this project? How is it running? What did you end up with for pump sizing and a turbo?

Runs great after an inframe, my "75k" motor was a dud and needed a rebuild, it's got a turbo off of an 6cta cummins, MW Bosch pump although I'm sure I'd love a p-pump for it. Seems to put out maybe 350 horse in its current state. Would like to see some more but I can already push my egt's up past 1,400 and I'd prefer not to melt down a freshly rebuilt 466. Might try to track down another 466 to swap into my 08 F350 as it only took me about a week to grenade the 6.4L powerstroke

A little dirty due to an exhaust leak
