Looking for 315HP

Hey guys. The time comes where I upgrade this old warhorse. The DMF finally gave up, so I have a new clutch ready to hold 315Hp/610lbft. I will have a SuperDuty on hand to give up its intercooler and fuel system, HPOP if it's in good shape, maybe IDM and other odds and ends. Anything else I should take off the SD? Looking at Rosewood stage 1 injectors. Anything I need to go with them? I will do inj cups while it's apart. I see Rosewood recommends PHP for a chip which I will more then likely go with. 250K stock bottom end. Anything I'm missing here?

Thanks

No seems like you got it about set. Id check the turbo and make sure its in decent shape just to be sure. I wouldnt bother with the SD fuel system other than the pump. Then do a fuel bowl delete. But other than that you will probably be right around the rating for that clutch

Yeah I planed to be around the max of the clutch. The SD has an aux idle controller I plan to rob, so I won't need to waste a chip setting on high idle. Should leave room for a low HP heavy tow setting.

Yea that makes sense. I wouldnt be worried about it with a 6 position chip but if its cheap then yeah do it. I wouldnt waste a spot on a smoke or lope tune

There shouldn't be such thing as a smoke tune!!! I guess if someone wants to pay for it, it's their business.

Yeah, all they are are the high HP setting fueling at lower rpm. nothing special.

IMO I'd sell that AIC and put the money towards the truck. On my chip i only use 3 positions regularly. Those are high idle, tow, and race. Even then 99.9% of the time its in race, and never leaves it. Hell i even towed in race, and just used the tow tune on hills cause there was to much fuel and my turbo wouldn't stay lit.

And honestly you can hit 315 with the stock SD injectors if they are in decent shape. With just the injectors and Gearhead tunes in my truck, it ran strong. Can't comment on mileage though cause i was doing good if i hit 14.6. But that had a bit to do with the way i drove it, which is what destroyed the transmission.

I would sell it off, but how much could I realistically get..maybe $100? The truck now has some generic tune loaded into it and sometimes in the summer it's just a little too smokey, hence why I'd like a couple lower HP tunes. I like the idea of the idle controller, it's gets cold here, and I'd like to use it after towing to let it cool off a little with good oil pressure. Maybe I could just get a 4 pos chip and save a couple of bucks.

Got the engine pulled (have to replace oil pan/other misc oil leaks) Truck already has Rosewood stage 1's. That saves a couple bucks.

Yeah, $100-150.

Like i said i'd sell it and get a chip. I run Gearhead tunes, which run very clean. Like i said i can tow in a race tune and have no smoke unless i romp on it or lug it. In normal driving it never smokes until i go past 1/2 throttle. I could drive all day in traffic, highway, anywhere with a haze at the most. Then i put my foot down a little and it'd smoke. Especially when i have the RPM's up it runs nice and clean.

Honestly i could get by with only 3 tunes from Matt no problem. Hi idle, a tow tune, and the race tune are all i need. Thats running basically small stage 1's, exhaust leaks, and low fuel/HPO pressure.
