Want to hit 400-450rwhp what still to do?

Hey guys, need a little help here.. So I got an 03 ford excursion.
Mods:
-arp studs
-egr delete
-blue spring mod
-sinister coolant filter
-afe cold air intake
-sct x3 canned tunes, except for a custom 120hp from my shop, (Bernhausen Diesel)
-4" turbo back mbrp
-cts monitor

I've read a lot of posts on the forum and heard people getting 400-450 with stock injectors and stock turbo. Just wondering what else is necessary for me.. I believe I have about 330-350rwhp now.

Maybe some other tuning...Last I recall a tuned 6.0 will roll 400+.

I guess I will get some custom tunes.. What is recommended? I've read a lot about Erics tunes from innovative, but I don't know who to go with.. ?? I would want a good tow tune and a highest hp tune available to make the most power I can and one in between..

Any suggestions?

Here is a list of tune writers.

list of tunes and where to get them?


With your list of mods and a good race tune should put you in the 400-425 range. You can probably gain another 30-50 with Water/Meth. Then a FICM tune for better throttle response.
