So how do you really get more power!?

See sig below about current rig...

In looking around for more POWER I'm finding that most of the tunes you get (SCT, etc) only provide about 125+ more then stock.

With studs done, EGR done, exhaust done...how do I get more??

Once you do custom tunes you could get a custom FICM......from there it gets really pricy to get power.

These guys have you on track. Once you have tunes and supporting mods (EGR delete, studs, fuel, and IMO filtration) you're looking at injector and turbo upgrades.

One thing I will add, if you haven't already, I'd consider re-gearing your diffs to "recover" your lost power. That can be done for around $1K depending on the brand of gears you choose and how proud the shop is of their work. Still cheaper than either a turbo or injectors.

Any way you look at it, 400-450 hp is about the point on a 6.0 it starts to cost real $$$$ to make more power.
