Cool new to sight and have done my research and still not sure

Hi i just bought a 2003 f350 diesel and it has a new head studs and head gasket and a banks turbo and 4 inch exhaust. was was wondering what other mods i should do to it to get more power out of it. Programer which one? or chip? cold air intake? which one? anyone running a 6 inch lift on there truck and what size of tires can you run with it? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT WHAT IS THE MOST HORSE POWER I CAN PUT ON A STOCK TRANNY WITHOUT BLOWING IT UP OR MAX TUNE FOR POWER

I didn't think Banks makes a turbo for the 6.0.???? Apparently you didn't do a good job of researching, The questions you asked have been posted 1000's of times.

Yeah if you read any of the programmer questions you would know that SCT w/custom tunes is the only way to go......If it's a 6.0 anyway. Not sure about the 7.3's. I run a six inch lift and I run Mickey Thompson 35" MTZ's. You can look at my gallery, that will atleast show you what that looks like. Stick with the stock intake. It's the best your gonna get until you reach 500+HP. Not real sure about the what the tranny will hold. I am sure someone will fill you in on that.

All this only holds true to the 6.0's. That is the motor I have, so it is really all I study. Hope that helps man!

I've read (many hours of trolling around on this forum lol) that 500ish is when you should start updating the tranny. I'm sure someone with experience will chime in tho.

As far as the tranny goes 500hp is said to be about the max. I think it really depends on the history of the tranny. If that thing has been beaten to crap then it probably wont take too much more than 400+hp to finish it off.

Driving habits are also going to have an effect on the life span of your stock tranny. If you put some mods on it and then start romping on it all the time, I would assume you will see some problems alot sooner than later.

As for the rest of your questions, do some research on this site. There is a lot of valuable information posted in the 6.0 section and you will learn a whole lot more by researching yourself rather than someone just simply answering your questions.
