Horsepower Question?

I'm still learning alot about these trucks but I was looking to buy another 6.0. I really want to get a rcsb and make a streetable race truck. I don't know the hp i would need but I'd like to build a mid 11 second truck. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

You're probably going to need at least 650hp and probably closer to 700hp but I'm sure there are guys who actually race and can have a better idea of what you'll need.

For some reason I figured it would be some outrageous number and kill my hopes lol. Appreciate the responses tho, 700 doesn't seem that crazy tho.

I would say that mid to high 600s is relatively straight forward (not going to say it is easy or cheap but is doable) to achieve with all of the advances in aftermarket technology/knowledge for the 6.0.

Aside from the normal bullet proofing modifications to the motor, you're going to need injectors, turbo system (at the very least a big single and possibly compounds), fuel system (this one is debatable on which way to go), and transmission. Then you'll probably need some incidentals like traction bars, LS/locking differential, and tires. I would figure on spending around $15k for all of this. Should make a beast of a truck though, I would think.

S366, divided up pipes, maybe a gate, fuel system, tranny, larger injectors, and nitrous will get you there. Your bottom end may not like you tho with to much of that spray.

I figured it wouldn't be cheap but that's why i'm gonna start buying stuff now. 06, what would be your turbo suggestion if I wanted to go all fuel? I'm really hoping Adrian's stage 5 is r/d'ed and dyno'ed before I build this truck haha.

Matt (06powerstroke06) will be able to tell you more about this kinda stuff than I ever will, but here's my two cents. If you want to get into the 11s on your lift and tire setup,fuel only, compounds are going to be the best way to go. a VGT hasn't broken 700 on fuel only, yet, and a big single nonVGT may end up being tough to drive on the street. You are looking at 225 or bigger sticks to get there, I think, which means HPO upgrades. I don't know how much your stock rods are going to appreciate that kind of power either.

Gents, keep in mind the OP mentioned that he wanted "a mid 11 second" truck (I assume that to mean ~11.5 seconds in the 1/4 mile) and was looking at a regular cab 2wd truck, which weighs in the mid 6k lb range. With the HP calculator it means that he can reach that with ~650-700hp, so I would say that if he can make high 600s (i.e. 685-690hp), he should be fine and his bottom end should hold together right?? Hope this makes sense. No real point in going more than what he wants to build (of course that could change too )

I'd say you aren't going to get there for under $20k at a minimum if you do your own work. And lets not discount the fact that Ford doesn't make a RCSB Super Duty so you are going to have to shorten the frame and do all of those mods yourself too. You are looking at a very extensive build.

Thanks Nate, i totally missed the whole regular Cab truck part. I was operating under the impression that he was wanting to ge this current truck, in the sig, into the mid 11s. So you're rights we are talking about a 650-700 hp truck. The bottom end should hold together, but just ask kdogg how his did at that power level. I think most trucks will last on the stock bottom end at over 700 hp. I guess it depends how much the OP wants to spend and how lucky he feels. Also, since it is a designated race truck and doesn't have to turn big wheels and tires, I would think a big single is not out of the question.
