Injectors & Turbo(s)

So right now, my truck is havign a new tranny dropped in since I may have blown my stock one up. I really want to get a set of injectors and a new turbo but I'm unsure what I need to do to get me to my goals.

I would like to hit mid 600s but if I just cross the 600hp mark I'll be happy. Right now I'm looking at Elite injectors either the 255cc or the 295cc but I'm unsure, if they really are the best choice. As for turbos I'm lost, I'd like to do a compound set up (62 over S475) just to keep away from having a huge laggy single but I'm not sure if I want to spend 7k on just turbos. I'm open for all suggestions and thoughts on what injectors and turbo(s) I should run.

What needs to be done for supporting mods to help me reach this goal? I've already got an Airdog II 165, studs, and an EGR delete.

295cc are way to large, Nate is running a 64mm single charger with elites 225cc and did 617 I believe on fuel only. If you run that big of an injector your gonna need to upgrade you fuel lines to at least -6 or -8 lines to feed them, Twins is the best way to hit 600hp but doesnt mean you need to have that big of an injector. Your gonna end up spending alot more then just 7k believe me I know Ive went down that road already.

Realistly what do you use your truck for in the end ?

If i can get away with a 225 Injector then I'm all for it. I know I'm not comparing apples to apples but my friends 7.3 has 220 Swamps and he's barely crossing the 440 mark. And if I can keep a single charger on it with out having a ton of lag then I'm happy.

But really, this truck is just a daily driver that only tows a 28' boat duing the summer weekends.

you can make good power with 225's and a non VGT turbo. thats what im going for. To get rid of the lag im going to be running a suncoast converter with a 1900 stall.

Just to point out even though you will hit 600 with inj and turbo(s) there will be some other items you should concern your self with with that high of power. Elite recommends their HPOP with 225 inj. Modifications to the trans to handel 600hp.

Elite makes a vgt that works with their 225 and 255 inj if you want a faster spool, it will also hold the low end better than a non-vgt, unless you want twins, then that does both high and low end.

Its good that you have the fuel studs and egr delete

I used to have a 97 Cummins and I learned about supporting mods the hard way with that truck. So I've been pretty good on taking care of things like the Airdog and studs. I've also got an ATS tranny going in right now since I did something to the stocker while show boating with the Edge on lvl6.

Would a Stealth HPOP be good enough for the 225s? Should I leave myself some room to upgrade in the future and get the Terminator HPOP set up?

Also what's a good turbo for 225s? I was thinking of getting a 64/71 that way if I do decide to go bigger and run compounds, I would already have a primary charger.

We all have our own experiences and our opinions will be very helpful, but another way to get more information on YOUR proper set up is to call elite diesel.

Thanks! I'll have to give them a call tomorrow and see what's what, and if everything is good, I'm only about 3 and a half hours from Pueblo so this whole set up may happen rather quickly
