Being that you need to keep your EGR system, I highly recommend the Bulletproof Diesel egr setup. It's a little expensive, but it is an awesome setup and you don;t have to worry about it failing. The only other thing is if the truck has a CAT on it, you will need to retain it (at least visually :couch: )
RWHP is a toss up, it depends on the truck and your tuning, I don;t see 500 hp at the ground being out of reach with the mods you listed and good tuning. As far as transmission ife, the biggest factor is you. How you drive it how you maintain it and all that. That being said, if driven properly, the trans should hold up fairly well. Just keep in mind that towing frequently or running big eavy tires increases the load on the transmssion.
Agreed. It would be a stretch but you can probably squeak 500rwhp out of it. You might have to add FICM tuning to the list of mods. Chris laid down 500 with stock injectors, Hercules FICM tune, MTW Stage 2 (which is bigger than a Pmax), and supporting mods. Your transmission will be fine as long as you have some common sense and don't try beating on it when the fluid hasn't warmed up. I'm still running the stock trans and I hammer on it alot. But I use common sense.
