Advice on what to get for a reliable build

ok so coming up I am hopefully going to be doing a build. As everyone does, I want the highest power numbers with reliability. Reliability is taking priority on this.

Here is my list, but I am not 100% decided on what brand to go with so input would be greatly appriciated


1. Tuner : Spartan or H&S. I have heard great things about both and very few people having problems, but when it comes to it which one gives more power and less problems?

2. Cai: AFE Stage II Si, PG7 Filter with TorqueTube

3. Exhaust: Flo-Pro 409 SS 5" Turbo back or downpipe back with a 4 inch dp. I have heard some people have had a 5" dp rub on the cab? Or I was going to do a 4" or 5" dp to a 5" dpf/doc delete pipe and then a mbrp exhaust from the delete pipe back.

4. Spearco Intercooler with the Cold Side Intercooler Pipe

5. Airdog DF-165 or FASS 220 GPH

6. Spartan 150hp injectors? Any advice on this?

7. Elite diesel ported fuel rails

8. Rudy's Diesel Twin K16 High Pressure Fuel System (How much power will this add? this is a maybe considering its over 3k)

9. Elite diesel chromemoly push rods

10. Elite diesel main stud kit

11. H11 Head Stud Kit. Are these needed? I heard the studs on these 6.4's are pretty strong as is?

12. Elite diesel Competition Ring Set

13. Elite diesel EGR delete kit with a BOV and CFM

14. Snow performance Stage 3 water/meth

15. NX Dual Stage Nitrous System with Mini Progressive Controller

16. Fully built Suncoast or Suncoast rebuild kit? Reliability is what I would like. and if I go with Spartan for tuning, do i no longer need to get the tcm with suncoast parts?

17. Suncoast TC and Input shaft.


Is there anything I am missing? This truck is a daily driver which is why I want reliability. The nitrous would only be used at the track and I would be going to the track every couple weekends. I don't really do any sled pulling, maybe I will someday but for now its a no. If I was to get a camshaft it changes the rmp range and do i want that for daily driving? and are the new max-power turbos worth 9k?! Would I need to worry about other driveline parts with these mods such as driveshafts? Any other ideas and advice would be greatly appricated.

thanks.

matt

If you are going to spray any N2O, you will need headstuds as a safety for reliability. The only thing I see that you might want to look at is turbos. The benefit of ported heads is to flow better. No need for the Spartan TCM with a suncoast tranny.

You would definitely want turbo's with a build like that. That's a lot of fuel. The stock turbo's run out of air with the big race tunes.

ok thank you for the input john and jeff. And will of these mods work with a spartan tuner or h&s or is there more custom tuning required? and is this going to be driveable on a daily basis?

Some custom tuning will be required, but we may be able to help you out on that end. I'll have to discuss it with Matt. Custom tuning is not a top priority of his at the moment.

You could probably be in the 750-800 range on fuel and 1000+ on nitrous depending on how much you are willing to throw at it.
