basic tuneing and parts

Now that the 6.7 is out there is wild wild deals on the used 6.4s so i would like too pick one up in the near future. First thing is first throw spartan on there, the package with the 310 tune, the dpf delete and air intake for $2000.00 seems like a mighty fine deal too me. My first thought is that that like 660 flywheel hp i assume isnt that alot for a stock trans??? but for only 2000 dollers why stop there. what else can be done for more fun. I have always belived in water/meth in safe levels. also what is the new tq number with spartan.

The 310 will put your truck in the 585-600 horsepower range and 1100-1200 ft lbs of torque range. As for your stock tranny, if you daily drive and beat on your truck all the time with the 310....you would definitely shorten the life of your stock transmission, specifically the torque converter. You would have plenty of lower tunes to choose from as well. I have heard that the methanol isn't the greatest on the valve train of the the 6.4....I think it was River City Diesel that stated they had seen some valve stem wear with methanol.

Other good upgrades are replacing the stock downpipe with a 4" downpipe, replacing the stock CAC pipe with a more free flowing CAC pipe, and replacing the stock intercooler with a Spearco, AFE, or Banks intercooler.

my though process why 25/75. 25%meth with 75% water is a very mild mix comparted too the usualy 50/50 also i would downsize the water/meth injector size. we all know heat it a killer that why i like watermeth hell there are a few guys i know that run these kits with no meth just water for cooling.
I figure if you do a 100% hp increase there is gona be some extra heat in that engine.

What upsets me is find most companys wont post there estamated gains from a product. i have looked at that Spearco Intercooler and it mighty fine looking porduct but what would be the gains hp/tq and lower EGTs with it?

You can make 38-40 stock, and as much as 48-55 psi with tuning.

It is the pipe that exits off of the intercooler....the cold side pipe.
