190s huh? I had always thought about 190s, how are they as far tune-ability? Detuning for daily driving use mainly. As far as a regulated return - I'm talking to an ORG member (we all love him) about one of his kits. How are the 6.4/6.7 fuel pumps holding up for the guys that were trying that swap going? If that doesn't work well, I'm assuming the AD150 and an A1000 like usual will be the fuel system of choice?
Traction bars... this should be fun. My truck isn't the normal wheelbase, how difficult is this going to be for me to find someone to make me some?
The trans is a ZF6, so I really just need a dual disc clutch for it. The rest of the transmission is pretty stout, from what I hear.
Hmm Chris, someone else talking 190s eh?? Seems like that number came up in our conversation today.
The key (IMO) to getting the power potential
from these trucks is ICP and therefore injection pressure as it just really helps with the atomization burn efficiency of the fuel. Tuning of course plays a role in this as well.
You are in a tough spot. I don't see your turbo (NOT BASHING HERE) being what you want for the power numbers you are after. If you said you wanted high 500s, I'd say that turbo is right, but for 650 or so hp, I'd say that in order to be clean, you're going to want some more air.
I would suggest if you want to keep your turbo to get 175/75s, WPE ported intake manifold, RR kit, AD150, AND dual HPOPs. That's right, I said it. Dual HPOPs with 175/75s... I'm sure that'll open a can of worms but that's ok. The extra oil may be a little over the top but I guarantee you that you'll get every drop of fuel possible from your injectors. Plus it'll allow you cut your injectors to something big like Charlie's 285/75s and be already to go.
I know it's overkill, but I'm a fan of the AD150 feeding a pump like an A1000 or Fuelab. I know I run an A1000, but if I were to do it over again, I'd get a 41402 Fuelab and run it at 70% output and call it a day. No need for a speed controller to keep the pump from running 100% all the time.

Thanks for the vote of confidence man
However, I can not honestly say for sure whether my truck is a 600hp truck or not (hence why I removed the number from my signature). That was one run on one dyno and I never backed it up at the track. I'd rather not use my truck as a reference for making power. I believe it was definitely high 500s though.
