max hp

new on this forum but have been on many i have a 05 powerstroke and i have been slowly adding things for more power but now am getting to the point that i believe that things will start to break when i add more so....

i know i will need head studs soon but am waiting to blow the head gaskets before i change. i am going to delete the egr stuff soon.

my real question is when does stuff start breaking like push rods connecting rods pistons i heard that 6.0 have a pretty weak bottom end on them and should fix that when i put head studs on.

any info would help thanx

There are 6.0's out there that are running 450-550 HP on stock bottom ends without any problems.

Welcome to the Org! I have broken a few, cough, cough, parts along the way! You are going to get many different and varying responses. Yes I would definately get studs and go with the egr delete. A tuner and a good set of gauges along with an exhaust should be your first mods, which you already have. Depending on how much horsepower youare intending on trying to obtain, then you are looking at intakes, the stocker is fine for most applications, unless you want to go with larger injectors and bigger turbo, then you must add more air. If you do go bigger injectors, a fuel system is a must. The stock pump will not supply what you need. Please feel free to ask me or pm me with any questions you may have. If I don't know the answer I know where to get it. Again, welcome and good luck in your search for knowledge and power.
