damn newbs and all their questions..



Ok I bought my first ford powerstroke. been driving ford diesels for over 20 years but they were always company trucks.
Well I got a 95 crewcab longbed about 2 weeks ago. and started lurking the forum for simple diy mods.

the motor is all stock . it has documented 20 k on the bottom and 5k on the top.
flow tested injectors, rebuilt turbo, and tranny, 4" exhaust and a super chips program.

in the past 2 weeks i have done the following.
4.7 zener mod
ccv mod
ebp/tc lock up for jake brake. (with my own little twist)
fpr shim mod
idle control mod
pillar pod with boost , egt and tranny temp.
12 x 24 tranny cooler( over heated and smoked many trannys in obs trucks)

soon to follow is twin electric fuel pumps and filtration.
and intercooler(started sourcing the parts will do a wright up as it progresses)
3" down pipe
with a projected curb weight of 15k the next mod is a billet t/c and a DP 16 position chip.

now i want 600 hp and 1k tq. Is that possible without going into the bottom end and still get 200k out of the fresh bottom end. And what parts and from where do you recommend ?

planing on stage 1 injectors, turbo and hpop. any suggestions?

Not going to get the numbers you want on 1's...

Your not gonna need that much fuel unless you are running something insane, which you may have to do to get your numbers. Good luck. Powerstrokearmy.com has more of a following for competition trucks I believe, us guys are here are mostly stock plus 200 hp or so.

This will be my new service truck. stretching the frame 34" and putting a 11' enclosed utility body. I love to the faces of the ricers when a 22' long truck smokes them from the light.

mite as well wait for hybrids, t4 mount style turbo, valve springs and head studs, bottom end is pretty reliable compared to the newer ones, but always room for improvement,, gonna need big oil too once you get all that, so look for an adrenaline or stealth hpop

EDIT: ohh and

Why not run that bed on your stock frame? My flatbed is 9 foot and it fits real good.

If you make those hp #'s you will have a bit more torque than 1k, at least from what I've seen from the guys making that kind of power. 600hp is a stretch on a stock bottom end even with the factory forged rods. Seems like 500-550 is about where people stop on the bottom end unless you are willing to chance a catastrophic failure. That being said, I'm sure you already know that once you start modifying and making more power, almost nothing is a gaurantee. As said above, Stage 1 injectors won't even get you close to 600hp. That will take some good sized hybrids (Stage 3+). Not sure EXACTLY what it takes to get 600, but no doubt a GT38R or probably even a modded H2E turbos won't get you there on all fuel and I know I am looking at 238cc/80 or 238cc/100 injectors to get me in the 500hp range (Probably a bit less depending on the tuning). Good luck with the build if you press on and let us know how it goes!
