From what everyone says the stock intake on the 6.0s is good up to about 500 hp. Water/meth injection is a good addition. Cant help with the tranny I don't know much about them.

well it was lifted and i was sick of bouncing around all the time. i have had lifted trucks the last 15 years and i figure i would try the cadi escalde ext. BIG MISTAKE. dumped that for a silverado gasser and just missed the diesel and lifted truck. so i got this ford. i have had 2 other ford sd in the past never the powerstroke though. i really loved the dodge tons of power but the interior sucked and i always loved my fords. i just hope i can get the performance up on this. the dodge had injectors, triple dog with crazy larry, studs, sps 66 turbo, smoke stacks and 9 inches of lift. im hoping this looney tune will help the ol ford get up and go and smoke like the ol dodge.

Welcome to the forum...

You can get a good bit of power out of the 6.0 but just like your Cummins, don't forget the head studs... Let's face it, even the Duramax guys know to stud the heads... I mean 18 to 1 compression and 30 + lbs of boost... I'm surprised that these diesels don't come from the factory with studs...

ok. the kitty and muff fell of and i did the zoodad. that helps a bit and sounds better too. the downpipe is 3.5 right? should i get a turbo back exhaust so i have the bigger downpipe? or is the stock exhaust minus the 2 lost parts just as good? i also called and talked to vivian at dj's and next week im getting the sct tuner. this site has been a huge help with the new truck.

you wont be disappointed with power output of a modded 6.0
do the standard things such as : studs, t/b exhaust, kitty delete, gauges, SCT (only an sct, no other brand), and gauges. the looney is not a waste, i personally run tunes from SPARTAN DIESEL and LOVE them.
tranny mods: get a good billet 3 disc low stall converter. such as the ats 5star or banks as an example. they are overpriced, i use one from D/P products but dont pay more than about 12-1300 for it.
also my internal clutch frictions and steels are upgraded too to handle the extra power.
