03 pstroke mods 600HP maybe:)

Hi my name is Collin, i just got out of the Marines and back stateside for good...finally lol. I bought a 03 F-350 6.0 bout three years back, was wanting some opinions as well as insight on what im bout to do. The part list below is everything that is goin on next week. What kinda power should be pushing is my guess with proper tuning around 600HP. Tunes will be through GEARHEAD on a SCT LIVEWIRE. All opinions or ideas on parts or tunes or anything concerning trucks performance are appriciated thank you.

What are your plans for your trans? It probably won't hold for long. There are sticky's that list all parts someone should consider when going that far into the motor.

All this will not get you 600rwhp. Why would you want that anyways. Go buy a mustang. You are looking at some pretty sh1ty fuel mileage too.

You should be a right around the 6 mark, maybe a tad over.

Really? Why would you post that? Why in the world do you care if he wants a 600 hp or a 1000hp truck?

And tell my why fuel mileage is a concern with these trucks in the first place, you want fuel mileage, go buy a VW TDI.

FWIW, I have gone from 185/70s to 155/100s to 255/150s for injectors, and my fuel mileage has not changed at all. The combination of 205s and the 68mm powermax have proven 600 hp time and time again. At that power level, your transmission is going to hate life.

Really, why would YOU post that? Why do you care about my opinion? Ether you agree our disagree with it. I happen to get great mpg and hover at 520 rwhp. I asked him why he wanted 600 hp now be a big boy and let him answer cupcake.

I was not aware that that was a time and time again proven fact that's my bad. He might want to add a tranny to that list then. I have seen guys trash their trans at 500 so at 600 I'm sure it will be screaming at him. I did have a change in my mpg when I changed injectors but it got better.
