Stock turbo and injectors maximum potenial!

Hey guys fairly new to the forums here and I'm looking to maximize my trucks performance without changing the turbo or injectors (for now atleast, powermax in the near future) My truck has the following;

ARP studs and new gaskets
EGR delete (sinister diesel)
Blue fuel pressure spring (Riff Raff)
Coolant filter (sinister diesel)
MBRP straight piped exhaust to dual 5" stacks (stock DP tho)
Stock air box (don't plan on changing unless needed)
Running Edge Insight to monitor egt's, fuel pressure etc.

My questions are what can I expect as far as power results from a "maxed" out stock turbo and injectors? I've herd 400rwhp-420rwhp is doable...

What quarter mile times can I expect to be around? mid 13's?

My goal is 450rwhp and 800rwtq is this achievable thru SCT customs tunes as well as FICM fine tuning? What else do you recommend to achieve this goal

If your truck is a standard cab long bed 4x4 you might get mid 13's but I wouldn't count on it. Going with the larger turbo is going to give a slight bump in hp but don't expect to much. Probably 450+ rwhp with live tuning. FICM tuning will help increase power a little but don't get it if you plan on getting bigger sticks.

Mines an 04 f-250 ext cab 4x4, im looking to get the most out of the truck right now for what it is and then hopefully after the tranny is built get a new turbo and some bigger sticks.

I personally love nitrous as i have ran setups on a few different cars ive owned but non of them were diesels so id be a little skeptical...

diesels love nitrous long as you have the the extra fuel ...black smoke out the exhaust u can spray nitrous till the smoke is gone. it will be fine.

your tranny might not like it though

Last spring for our dyno/track day my truck was about as stock as it gets (stock turbo, injectors, fuel delivery, headbolts, egr system). Only mods were 4" mbrp and a custom tune. I dynoed 435/767 and ran a 13.9 @ 97. I was leaving the line very soft and only getting around 2.0 60' times. If I were to leave harder and get my 60' times down to 1.8 or a little better, there's no doubt in my mind I could get 13.5-13.6's out of her. The hp calculator puts me at 458 hp with my weight and trap speed. I have since done an egr delete, intake, ficm tune and changed my ecm tuning so we will see where that got me come April.
