‘97 Extended cab e350 with a 5th wheel

We found this in California & the vin sticker says Unfinished vehicle. Started as an ambulance chassis I think but it got an extended cab, aluminum bed & service boxes.
I just added a 5th wheel hitch to it. Was surprised to see the frame rails drilled for the hitch. Must share the rails with the f350.
Runs great but needs a power increase so... moved the batteries to the box, installed a diy 6637 air intake, Mark F. efuel system, 4” diamond eye exhaust, 2 stage 8 gallon water/methanol injection. Currently waiting on 180/80 injectors from Rosewood & upgraded CNC fabrication hpop. Also installing a Melling lpop & new water pump & gp’s.
Brian Jelich (JeliBuilt Performance) will be doing the tunes on the Hydra tuner.
Also converting the ebpv to an exhaust brake, air bags & a diy Viair w/small tank compressor.
The extended cab area was just an empty fiberglass box so added carpet & a Suburban seat back there.
Looking forward to some long distance towing.
