Goal to reach 650 RWHP DD

Currently I have this on my truck Bullet Proof 58 Volt 6 Phase FICM, AFE Stage 2 Intake, MBRP Turbo Back 5" Exhaust, ARP Head Studs, Innovative Diesel Tuning, Powermax Turbo, Bullet Proof EGR Delete, PacBrake Air Bags, I put down 475 rwhp last year on Dan’s Diesel Dyno at Texas Diesel Nationals.

What I’m trying to get is a min of 600 RWHP for my daily driver. It spends some time on the dyno and at the track and I also need to be able to tune it back so I can still reliably tow.

I currently have these parts waiting on me to install them. Banks Intercooler assy, Snow Performance Stage 2 (just to help control EGT’s), Driven Diesel Regulated Fuel Return, Innovative Diesel FICM tune, KC 68mm Stage 3 VGT Turbo, 190/75 Warren Diesel Injectors, Airdog II 165(I plan on changing this to a Airdog 150 and Fuelab pump), Intake manifold which I plan on porting out myself.

I know I will need a transmission because I’m running stock right now, I already know who I’m having build the transmission but what I’m still unsure of is what stall to get the TQ. I also plan on when funds allow getting a Warren Diesel duel HPOP but this will need to wait a bit. I’m sure I will need traction bars but I need ones that will still allow me to tow and haul with my truck when needed and that will fit with the air bags I have installed. Anyone have any advice on these?

What else do you all figure I should get to make my truck as reliable as I can? Are there anymore up grades you would recommend that would go well with my set up?

I'm jsut looking for any advice anyone might be able to give i have been on these forms alot these last 6 months trying to plan out my build. When i finally get back home is when I will be starting my build. I cant wait 3 more weeks

I didn't see up pipes, those will be a weak link, I'd look into an upgraded bellows set or the sinister y pipes. I love them. Do you have upgraded CAC boots? Just the little things they might get overlooked

If you're after some SWEET up-pipes, shoot me a PM. Here are a few pics... These pipes will clear 90* fuel line fittings for installation of a RR kit too.

This is going to be one awesome truck!!!


I would highly suggest some really good tunes. Don't run your current tuning with your setup (not even for a test drive). Also whatever tune you get I would make sure the pulse width is 2.4ms or less... this will help keep your cylinder pressures down a little bit. I run a lot of tunes. In my experience IDP dynos the highest and TSD tunes drive the best for my driving style (gearhead is a close second for drive-ability). I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting truck source diesel tunes (which i believe you already are planning on). IMO they might make slightly less power on the dyno but from my experience they are a little easier on the cylinder pressures and have AWESOME drive-ability

Like others said up-pipes will be a good idea

Be easy on your tranny... don't ever go on a long road trip, get off the freeway and then mash to full WOT. Let the tranny relearn your driving habbits slowly so it can time the shifts better. Do a couple 1/4 throttle runs, then 1/2 throttle, then 3/4 throttle, then go full throttle. It will help your tranny last longer.... but if you are over 600hp then it is only a matter of time before your tranny goes BOOM! lol



so far by the looks of everything you have really done your homework... that will pay off in a few weeks when you get back

Ur gonna need a larger turbo for that kinda power. Contact james at barder turbo. Ur lucky that you already have a pmax, as that is the platform he build off of.

U could also use an odawg ported manifold (great product btw) and possibly some no limit fab cac pipes to help the air get into the manifold easier. Ur also gonna need some bigger injectors.

05 F350 CC LB FX4 Lariat, ARP studs, new head gaskets, Barder Stage 2.5 turbo, warren diesel 175/30 injectors, Odawg ported manifold, no limit fab up pipes, S&B cold air intake, sinister coolant filter, BPD water pump, IPR EGR delete, MBRP turbo back exhaust no muffler or kitty, edge insight monitor, tunes from Matt @ geadheads, rancho rs9000xl adjustable shocks .

With the research i have done i dont think i will many problems getting to 600 RWHP with this set up as long as i can keep good ICP. Untill i get the Duel HPOP. However i could be wrong but we will not know untill I have everything installed and live tuned then i post what she is able to do. "Hope i dont blow the tranny right away" and it gives me at least a few good months.
