Ordered my go fast parts.

Just ordered my Warrens 175/75 injectors yesterday and got my powermax turbo today. I have an intake manifold ready to get ported and a mtw billet wheel coming in on Wednesday. What else besides a tranny should I be looking at. I'm going to get a new fan clutch, should I go with the snow plow one or just the normal? Maybe a bullet proof water pump as well. So with the performance upgrades what should the expected hp be? I plan on hitting the Dyno after its all done.

Every truck is different and so is every Dyno. You are going to want custom tunes with your setup to maximize. I would take it to a scale and it to a track instead of a dyno. Trap speed is going to give you the most accurate HP imo.

Edit: Just read your sig. I would just contact vivian and give her the specifics and have her brew up a custom tune for you. Tadd did mine and they have been great, it is weird but not only do I get the best power out of his Insanity tune, but also the best mileage out of it.

Yea I drove my truck around for a good while with a Stage 3 and had my tuning setup to keep the tranny from shifting into OD until about 52 mph and loved it. Even running the Stage 1 and Hybrid turbos, I think OD at 45 mph is too soon. I think 50-55 mph is a better spot for these trucks. Helps with smoke and EGTs IMO.

Yes I'm going to port it myself. If I decide I don't want to anymore I may send it to you.

Most people wouldn't think 5 mph makes a difference but it does, my OD kicks in at around 52-55 mph also!

Yea my Stage 3 wouldn't dig itself out from 1200-1300 rpm but would take off and go just fine from 1500 rpm and even though the Stage 1 and Hybrid turbos would go from 1200 rpm, I just never liked being there anymore since I live in a really hilly area.

I guess if it is flat like Texas then it's ok to have your tranny shift into OD before 50. Otherwise I think turbos in general like it better when the truck holds direct drive a little longer.
