i agree with what most people here are saying, 600 hp is easil;y attainable on the cheap, but having it be reliable i wouldnt count on it. at 600hp you will redoing head gaskets regularly and without a built trans you will be blowing it up. a built trans runs about 5500 from suncoast i believe, tunes/tuner 400, studs, head gaskets and egr delete is about 4 grand, and you might as well do an oil cooler while you are in there. all that and that probably wont get you to the 600 hp mark. honestly, if you want the reliable horsepower, do it right, or dont do it.
I had an 03 regular cab f350 6.0L and i had i think a 100hp ( might have been a little more, it was a tune from vivian at quick tricks) tune on my truck, and after a year (truck did have 100K on it) the trans started to slip, so the truck had about 88,000 tune free miles on it, and after 12,000 miles of a 100 hp tune the trans started to slip. Just to give you a heads up.
