Is your 600 mark at the motor or the wheels? At the wheels, 600 will probably take done serious cash. I'll let the masters break that down. 600 at the motor will require a tuner, probably an exhaust and I'd say studs and you're maybe getting close...

Your motor will have to look like the one in my signature if you still want it to be streetable.

600 cost alot!
500-550 is ALOT cheaper lol


Mind you this is all on fuel. If you wanna add the giggle gas then it get easier but you don't have it all the time.

Yep, pretty much what he said. There is a pretty heavy price jump from 520hp to 600+ hp because you need supporting mods so that it would last. I recommend you first identify what goals you have for the truck i.e Power, towing, drag racing, street racing, sled pulling, etc.

If you want 600Hp you are going to need the following at a minimum: exhaust, intake, studs, injectors (size depends on goals of truck), twin turbos (could possibly do it with a large single turbo but like injector size it will all depend on what you want to do with the truck once you reach 600hp), up graded fuel system (i.e. RR kit, larger fuel pump), tuning, and a heavier duty transmission.

Getting to the 600hp mark has been done many time but there is a large money, time, and effort gap from 550hp. Along with how you want the truck to handle different driving situations.

I believe some have done 600+ with a 66 non vgt or elite ssx vgt and 205 or 225 sticks. Towing will be a no no with either of these options.

Anywho, the studs, aftermarket fuel pump, turbo(s), injectors, tranny, and a few other odds and ends will get you there. Plus, a very deep bank account.

If you are shooting for 600hp even, just go with the 550hp mark. Much cheaper option and on the street, you won't notice it very much. 50hp on a 7000+ pound vehicle is hard at best to notice. Plus, the single charger hits harder when it lights from what I've heard. If you are going for competion, then the above will be needed depending on what class you run.
