How much HP do yall think I have?

My goal is to be between 450 and 500 range for now but im currently in college so funds are vwry limited. I was just wondering how far away yall think I am, I dont have much done besides a 5inch straight pipe, egr delete, intake, and sct with truck source. I plan to get studs as soon as I have enough saved.

I'd do studs for insurance. A Barder stage2 and a ported intake manifold will put you in your goal area. I'd also do a regulated return to help feed fuel to the rear cylinders. Once you have these you will have a very fun clean truck!

I agree on the Stage 2 turbos. They are great turbos and a good size to give you awesome spool but a big power gain too.

There is a decent number of trucks that will hit 450 - 500 rwhp on just SCT tuning and FICM tuning. Not all trucks will hit this, but a lot do.

I run the Madmax by MTW and have had great luck / numbers out of it. On fuel only my truck has danced around the 500 hp mark depending on who is running the dyno.

Agreed. Jay and I dynoed this past weekend, and we were both at 500rwhp on stock injectors. If you want 450-500, you're going to have to have studs. And with studs comes headwork. Do your research, and start saving.

Another thing you may want to look into, since you mentioned being on a budget, is a company called Dyno-Proven. The owner, Johnathan, was telling us this past weekend that they're making great headway on tuning for the 6.0 - they're almost capable of making 500rwhp on stock injectors and stock turbo. Not sure what all is involved, but ECM and FICM tuning are an obvious. That's 500rwhp fuel only.
