new 6.4 owner build

First off, Im new to the site so hello to everyone! Im sure this has been discussed before so I am sorry.

I have a 2010 F250 with H&S Mini Maxx, Sinister EGR delete, 5" turbo back exhaust, ARP Head Studs and the AFE CAI. Im looking to spend about 10-15K in go fast goodies on it so my question is, with all of that done, what would be your next move? I know I am probably close to the limits of the tranny and tq converter and I also worry about the front axle/driveshaft with the occasional boosted launch (no more than 10psi) Ultimately im looking for close to 750rwhp but not on this build, unless that is reachable...

Thanks!
Mike

A built transmission would be at the top of my list. Something like Elite's Stage IV and a torque converter from either River City Diesel or Diesel Performance Converters. Then I would consider a drop-in set of compound turbos like Elite and River City Diesel offer. Elite has a 76/59 setup and RCD has a 75/59 setup. Both are capable of 700+ with a little extra fuel and spool up is going to be awesome. That would be where I would start and go from there. You'll want to look into No Limit Fabrications cold air intake (and their CAC pip/intake elbow). These are just basics to set the foundation and should be well within your budget at the end of the day.

Tranny is definite.
No Limits CAI, hot side and cold side if you haven't already done so.
3 or 4 link on the front axle and Tbars on the back.
I am an air before fuel guy so I would say turbos next. If your ultimate goal is 750, you could do the drop ins or you could upgrade even more and do a BB atmo like the Tow X or High Powers. The High Powers will spool very quickly even with stock fuel. They would get you close to 700 on stock fuel. They are more durable than than a drop in, BUT they are twice as much in price compared to drop ins.

On the fuel side, you are looking at another $5k so I don't see it being in your budget right now.

Eventually you will need to upgrade the valvetrain and add a WG.

Finally, you will have to decide what you are going to do about pistons....take your chances with stockers cracking or upgrade before they crack. Pistons are expensive from a laborious standpoint.

I've honestly heard of more failures from the big Elite turbo setups than the drop-in setups. That doesn't mean there aren't more failures from the modded stock turbos, but that's what I've seen on the forums over the years.

Tow X has definitely had some issues, but how many HPs? I haven't always kept up so maybe I missed them. If there were HP failures, were they over-fueled or improperly gated? I ask cause even though a JHP is going on my truck now, my ultimate goal is HPs.
