My build appreciate input!


Ok I decided its time to get the ball rolling on my build. So far my truck has all needed gauges, SCT, 4'' exhaust, Garrett powermax, IDP FICM tune, minor stuff like bb mod and drilled out banjo bolts.

I wont be towing anything at all with this truck so keep that in mind. I dont put many miles on this truck so if it runs alittle smokey im ok with that. I just want maximum power

Ok now for the good stuff here is my list

stuff im sure about:
ARP Studs
Sinister EGR delete

now the not so sure about list:
injectors 190cc or 205cc?
Gaskets factory good?
Intake needed at this level?
building my own crossover line?
need a fuel system or can i just keep an eye on my fp gauge?
should I upgrade my 4'' to 5''?


I plan on doing all the work myself as I love learning and working on these trucks!!

Thanks for any input

190cc's are plenty for the powermax turbo. Wouldn't go any bigger.
Get yourself an AD2 fuel pump, 190's are thirsty.
Factory gaskets with ARP's are fine.
If you have the cash get one of Doug's stage 1 intake manifolds, but not completely necessary.

Yeah im kinda thinning 190s talked to Eric and he said that 205 would be fine but more fuel than i could use. He said 190 are more with in reason. It just seamed like everyone runs 190s I just wanted to be different.

190's are a popular size for a reason. They can be dialed down to work well with a smaller or stock turbo but are still enough fuel to get deep in to the 500's on fuel with enough air. Make no mistake, a 190 is a big injector.

I have one, but I don't think it's completely necessary. I think bigger banjo bolts and maybe a crossover line would do fine for 95% of trucks. Maybe upgraded lines to the heads.

It's just a line that ties the back of the heads together. There is a plug on the back of each head in to the fuel line. The plugs are there from the factory so the heads aren't limited to be ran on only one side. They are identical and can be interchanged. I'm not sure how much a cross over line costs, never checked in to one. They've been around a while, quite a few vendors sell them.

My turn.

Gasket wise Shu is right you can use either the Factory or the Victor Reins Black ones that I have.

Injector wise 190's are good enough, I plan on maxing this turbo out till it blows up so Im gonna tweak it to 600hp more then what its made for. Depending on your 190's depends on your power level and who you decide to go with.

Intake if you have the spare money then ya Doug intake is good.

Fuel system 2 sides to every story. I run the ITP RR and Airdog 150 and my pressure NEVER moves lol stays at 63 all the time. You can run the airdog 2 but I like the the idea that if it fails I still have my stock pump. Just me and thats my set-up which has been proven. You can build your own crossover but your gonna have clearence issues on the back of the heads BELIEVE ME already tried. Get Pre FAB kits easier.

Any other questions post up and I'll answer

Here is my set-up and what you have to look for.


Matt at Gearhead,Doug at GoGo,Dave at Diesel Innovations,Ryan at Full Force Diesel,Eric at Innovative. Adam at First Coast

Built 2003 with 04.5-07 parts,Hey its a hybrid . Totaled

New Era Rescue 08 F250 CC/SB No limit stuff, H&S stuff, Fl pro stuff.

I like the idea of the AD2 but how reliable is it? like you said I dont want to be stuck if it fails. What about the cross over line is it really needed with an airdog? And guess i messed up on the intake. I didnt mean Doug's intake (how ever it would be nice just not going to afford it right now. I ment cold air intake. At 500+ hp is it going to help me get more?
