Supposedly a rr with the stock pump will suffice.

I'll ask if you have a power goal as that will save you work and money in the long run. Just skip buying small crap and working your way up if eventually want a monster.

Skip the air dog or fass .... Get you a 6.4 pump as a lift pump. It sounds like the 6.7 may work too juggernaut is trying it out soon. The stock hfcm will keep up with 175/75s especially with adding the 6.4 or 6.7 pump as a lift pump. A RR would make it that much better.

As for which to do you need to set your goals first before buying parts. Jmo

A strong reliable fuel system is ALWAYS a requirement for a 6.0L motor. So build/buy whatever you can afford.

I'd suggest a ported intake manifold and a turbo of your choice. Injectors can be added later down the road.

Sound advice. If you can only do one mod at a time go with a turbo first. A ported manifold can cure cancer and will save the rain forest, so I've been told. Lol

But in retrospect my build would have been very different if I knew the trans would not hold up to more than 500hp. I was counting on my trans holding up for a while until it was built then add more HP. It lasted less than a day with 175/75 and hybrid. Save your money and build your truck once. It will be much cheaper in other long run. I am looking paying for injectors and a turbo twice now, I already have fuel system that can support 400cc injectors. My truck is already stupid fast on the street but there always quarter throttle right. Lol
