500 rwhp

500 Rwhp seams to be the magic number. Over 500 built trans needed. 155 sticks seam to the pick. Any bigger can't tow and you need a RR fuel system. Atlas 40 seams to be the ficm pick for dd and towing. Now turbo choice is the question since there is no stage 2. Any suggestions?

With the right tuning, and proper relearn - the transmission is probably closer to 530RWHP and reliable.

For the injector/turbo combo, I'd run an MTW with 155/30s. I'm intending to make the 500RWHP without the injectors - but there is a bit more that goes into that. (check thread in sig)

For FICM tunes, I'd run an economy (+25HP) or the Atlas40 file - depending on how heavy you are talking about towing.

You will need a solid towing file written, depending on which turbo / injector you run and your maximum load.

MTW may be able to continue to build stage 2s, another option may be that newer MTW Powermax combination.

A MTW Stage 1 or Pmax with 11 blade single plane billet wheel with a set of 155 injectors should land you over the 500hp mark, so long as your truck's HPO system is capable of 3800-4000 psi of ICP and the tuning is there.

Tuning will be the key to achieving this.

Well you are correct...

Very well. I retort. 175/stocks. If Frank (twoicebergs) can tow with 190/50s and a durastroke, you can tow with 175/stocks and a Stage 1 or Pmax with billet wheel and it stands an even better chance of hitting over 500hp.

The stock tranny should hold up well at 525-530hp levels.

175/100s with a Stage 2 have made over 550hp and towed 14k by one member down in GA.

155/stock has been proven to achieve over 500rwhp in some trucks, however this does not always happen.

175/stock will be a good injector size to achieve the horsepower mark you are looking for. These injectors commonly fall in 540 - 575 rwhp range when matched with the proper charger.

I'm running 155/stock nozzle injectors and my track times show that my truck is somewhere around the 530rwhp mark. I have killed the stock trans, but I do not "baby" the truck by any means. It tows very well. I'm not sure how heavy your talking about towing but I would consider 175 injectors. Mainly because we all know that you will always want just a little more power out of it and 175's can be defueled for towing heavy, but still allow a good bit of fuel for all out race tunes and max power. I suggest the PHP FICM tuner also. I love mine! And its nice to be able to drop back to the Atlas 40 when you hook the trailer up and load the Hercules back when you unhook. As for turbos.... I can say a few things and you take them as you wish. I have the MTW Hybrid with the original Batmowheel. My truck saw NO gain in track times, mpg, or lower EGT's over the stock charger. I know that MTW now has a new billet wheel that is suppose to change that, but I have yet to see a review. I have seen enough great reviews with the Stage 1's that I would suggest going that route, staying with the stock charger, or looking elsewhere for a turbo.
