Reliable HD300?

What parts would be required to make the running HD300 reliable. I am talking less smoke and lower egt's. I was at Elite's site and before I knew it I had $17000 worth of parts in my cart. I had Tow Power X turbos stage 2 heads 60hp sticks a built elite tranny ported fuel lines and intake manifold and the list went on. Then I realized I can't be trusted building my own truck. I don't want to make 1000hp on fuel I just want to make running the HD300 easier on the truck the 1600 degree egt's and massive amounts of smoke have to go.

Ive never hit those temps but i believe if you run an egr delete with intake elbow, cac pipe, and down pipe its suppose to help drop egts a bunch. Ive only learned this from reading on here but can say the downpipe helped me some.

On a boosted launch at the track my Mini Maxx registered 1604 degrees.

to try and cut down on smoke and lower egt's i am going to do the ported intake manifold and a batmowheel. Elites atmosphere turbo is a better option than the batmowheel tho. Another thing that might help is 6.0 manifolds and up pipes.

If you do enough of those boosted launches at the track you're going to need that 17k in upgrades. Besides the Minimaxx/ 4" exhaust on mine I also changed the down pipe, did the EGR delete with CFM elbow and SDP cold side pipe. I didn't notice anything significant as far as major egt drop and I don't think it reduced smoke much either. I never ran the HD300 much just because I knew it was more smokey than I liked. Stock turbos weren't intended for handling the massive fueling that big of a tune has so they are never going to clean up the smoke very well or keep lower egts doing WOT runs. Going with the better turbos would help your setup.

Or should I say the one boosted launch. As in I have only done it once.

I was leaning towards the Tow Power compounds a new intercooler egr delete with cfm elbow and headstuds. I only want to have the cab off once. I know the tranny will be next but it will last as long I keep my foot out of it most of the time. I like to run the HD300 I just dont like the smoke and high egt's.
