I would do a stock fuel build using the tunes you currently have.

A few items I would consider would be Elite's Tow Power Plus turbo setup, EGR cooler delete with No Limit Fabrication CAC pipe and intake elbow, No Limit Fabrication cold air intake (you'll need it for the larger turbos), Air Dog, ARP head studs, possibly a valvetrain upgrade, a few simple transmission upgrades.....

Yup, do as Jeff said and get custom tuning via MCC by Matt at Geahead. I hear he will have some stock injector tunes to test in the next couple weeks. The weak point of the 5r I believe is the TC. I would just build it to have it done right the first time.

They are already beta testing. As long as you have a mini max and mcc unlock code you will be able to run his tunes. Mcc is a great investment.

I have not seen that RCD tunes with MCC. They tune with SCT and are supposed to do custom tuning on the Spartan but I do not think that is squared away yet

6.4 big power and reliable build

Alright guys thanks a lot for the help!
This is what I'm thinking. Arps and oem gaskets put rcds up pipes on well the caps off. Do the batmowheels, bigger down pipe, and 3 inch Intercooler tube and possibly a upgraded Intercooler? What else are you guys thinking? What's the check list for the tranny just a tc?

Have you thought about a ported intake manifold and 6.0 exhaust manifolds and custom up pipes? I would also do a 4" down pipe and the cold side intercooler pipe. I also dont think the lp batmowheel is a bad mod for the money.
