Considering that I doubt anyone has done a manual trans swap on one of these trucks yet and I haven't heard anything about aftermarket injectors yet, I'd say your best bet would be the compounds but even those are sketchy right now. And why a manual trans?

No injectors out that i know of, and compound kit is still being perfected,(i read somewhere on here they had a couple motors blow up), and for the manual trans swap, that would be cool as hell!, but im sure hard and expensive$$$$$$$. I wish we could have ordered a dang manual trans!

If you do make any of the upgrades keep us posted!

I'd rather see someone come out with some billet rods to better hold the power the engines are capable of now and then someone to come out with a better cp3 pump to get more fuel out of the currently available injectors before aftermarket injectors or twin turbos.

What he said.

Right now injectors would be useless cause you don't have enough fuel. Compounds are basically just an expensive block window mod and you've got the capability to shift manually now with the button shifter.

Industrial Injection has extrusion honed injectors available. I know because I just visited their shop when I bought my tuner and exhaust.

I don't think a manual swap would be worth it. No way, but that's jmo.

I'd like to see you put in some injectors and a compound kit just to see if it can be done without putting a window your block.

IMHO you ought to just save your money for now.

The Scorpion seems to be limited by air, fuel and strength. From what I've read, every compound turbo setup has windowed the block.

Granted some are blaming tunes on this, but still, pretty scary when rods are failing at 500-600hp. Ford was touting forged rods in one advertisement I saw. Other reports are the rods are powdered metal.

So, to 'get crazy' with power, at minimum you need turbos, fuel upgrades, stronger rods. And that's what we know about today.

There's several groups/individuals who are working on getting more power from the 6.7, but for now, the only recipe that's proven is a simple tuner. The rest are blowing engines. And the tuned ones are eating turbos - turbo overspeed.

Or, if your pockets are deep enough, join the compound groups and take pictures of all the pretty windows it puts in your engine. Always like to see carnage photos.


As to dropping in a manual. I think this is going to be virtually impossible. The computer is not made to work with a manual trans so even if you get one in there the computer is going to hate not having an automatic to talk to.
