sequence of mods

i have my powerstroke broke down for the first time, it has 350.000km on it, i already had the sct livewire and gauges and straight pipe.
Sinds i have a hpo problem i will also do all the upgrades and egr delete, head studs. To get more torque and hp, what are the steps to tune it more, do i start with intake, turbo, injectors, feul system etc?
Thanks for the help, ps: i got a 2003 6.0 and do i lot of towing.

no need for aftermarket intake or regulated fuel return kit until you have 500+ hp from most most the big modded trucks runs.

little larger injectors and turbo with custom tuning would be next choice and the tuning would be to help trans keep up.

-2004 F350 CCLB 4x4: Sinister Race solutions kit, CAT ELC Edge CS, SCT SF3, PHP Ficm programmer, Procomp, Rough country, and Nitto goodies.
-2004 excursion, banks exhaust, 03 turbo, afe intake
-2006 f350 king ranch, 10 in fabtech, 40in tires, sct tunes,

currently-1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 First 7.3 and feels good to be back in a diesel....

Interested in learning something new?

I'd contact Warren and get 155/stock injectors with a stage 1 turbo. Should give you 500 hp but probably 400-425hp with a tow tune. I wouldn't go above 175/30's without doing some serious turbo upgrades since you tow heavy. Even 175/30's need fuel pulled from the tune if you tow heavy.

I have not seen any dynos or met anyone that even got close to 500hp with 155/stock and a stage 1 (unless they also had ported intake, ficm tune, and maybe water meth)... maybe 155/30 and a stage 2 or 175/stock and a stage 2. There have been a couple of crazy dyno numbers but most common would be

155/stock and stage 1 = 450hp
175/stock and stage 1 = 485hp
155/30 and stage 1 = 470hp
155/30 and stage 2 = 485hp
These are more common numbers, not the far few and in between live tuning and lucky numbers.


Too many people jump on here thinking with just 155s and a stage 1 = 500hp then when they get their truck dyno'd they think something is wrong or they don't want to post the numbers



Oh and this is not a dig on rollinearly99- it just seems that too many people get the same info regurgitated here on the forum. I am hoping to post this in hopes that someone does not google 500hp 6.0 and find this post and spread the word like gospel

I agree with the 155/stock and a stage 1, it is a great setup. but not a 500hp setup

A few have made 498-502rwhp with stock injectors and larger turbo..... Right? But let's not start this debate

Edit: Last year I put down 448hp 798 ft lbs on just the SRL+ dyno tune and that was stock injectors and stock turbo. Haven't dynoed my larger turbo yet... Hopefully next year at the Jefferson State Diesel Event.

Explain more in detail please.. I don't even know what you're talking about. Is it bad to run lope tunes? What does it act like?

I thought we had an understanding that you'd keep my secret?

I believe there has been maybe 1 or two people that have actually hit 500hp on a dyno with stock injectors... but that is 1 or two people of millions of trucks with stock injectors. The ones I know of were with larger turbos and live tuning. (php with mtw stage 2) but that seems to be the go to for everyone.


I would love to continue the debate but maybe not in this persons thread
