I wanna church up my engine a bit. opinions wanted!

let me know what you all think.

MTW Stage 2 turbo (when released) or the stage 1 ( im looking for opinions ) with new oil lines

08+ front and rear differential covers
08+ trans pan and filter


(unsure of builder) 175/30's


intake elbow: http://www.mkmcustoms.com/sinisterdi...takeelbow.aspx


Beans fuel sump: Sumps - Fuel Systems - Performance


Traction bars (unsure of whos yet)


http://www.mishimoto.com/ford-6-0l-p...kit-03-07.html


http://www.mkmcustoms.com/sinisterbi...passembly.aspx


With a gauge pod thing ( i have the older version of the sct livewire right now but it doesnt monitor many things and i dont like the suction cup mount. )
http://www.mkmcustoms.com/edgeinsigh...dvehicles.aspx


http://www.mishimoto.com/heavy-duty-...ctric-fan.html


im going for looks and power under the hood i know a few of the items are not going to help the power. also i have concerns for the transmission. if you think this will destroy my transmission in record time i may go the 155/stock route with a stage 1 or maybe even just a new billet wheel and rebuild kit.

is it worth it to remove the intercooler and drain the oil out? not sure how much will have built up in there at this point but im at 107K miles

please express your feelings and recommendations.

Injectors about 1400
One up off road track bars depending on style 1000-2000
Turbo 900-1800
Not sure on the radiator
Edge cts 500$ with all the pods

You may have enough

edge has sale on cs for 299 right now. im thinking 1500+100 for new oil lines for turbo wasnt sure at all how much injectors would be. is there a large difference between 175/stock and 175/30? is 175/30 the best setup or do you think a different nozzle size. the reason im thinking 175s is because i can stay on the stock pump. and i was figuring more like 700 for traction bars? i had glanced at pmf it didnt look terrible on price...

thanks for the input. any anyput on the trans?

If your gonna tow I'd go 155/30
Or a 175/stock. You will have more low end
If you want some more power get 175/75 more all around and top
Warren diesel hands down

For the trans I'm not sure. I'm still debating on what one to buy

One up off road has a cheaper set up you can also check with Trevor at precision metal fab aka Pmf

Stock pump may die pumping ll that fuel to a bigger injector, but there is tons of people still feeding their sticks with a stock pump. One thing you should get is a regulated return! Feeding your injectors stock or over sized is a good thing

And I seriously think the I take elbow is useless. Just sayin lol

A 155/30 with a billet wheel upgrade on your stock charger, beans sump regulated return, 08 or mag dif covers and Pmf bars and a radiator will more than likely be do able for 4-5k when you do your injectors check your oil rail nipples for play you may need to replace those. Xdp sells the kit and tool to install them.

i have been pondering on the RR i just never really committed does it just provide a more even fuel pressure? so your still running your stock trans on 600+hp? im hoping a RR kit wont set me back to far money wise. i see you can purchase kits but im not sure if that includes everything ill need. or what kit is the best bang for the buck.

lol the elbow was another one of the decoration items

My trans is on limp mode for the last few months on lower gears at high rpms lol I really need a new one. The rr kit will keep the fuel even to all the injectors and quiet your motor some. It's worth it. You can also piece together your own kit as others on the site have done saving them selves hundreds of dollars. And the elbow is not needed lol just sayin i don't drive my truck enough to destroy it 100% I have a work rig lol

EDIT: i think i fixed the links above.

I'd leave the intercooler till it grenades on you. It may never even happen. Your call. It's all gonna boil down to what do you want to do with your truck and how much power you want to set it up efficiently.
