Greetings!...and some questions

Hey guys (and gals if there are any),

New to the forum. I have had my 95 CCLB F350 Powerstroke for about 2 years now. I have a 6" lift, 33x12.50 M/T ATZ tires and 18" wheels. The basic supporting mods, Tymar intake with 6637 filter, PHP 6 pos chip, 3" DP to a 4" straight pipe exhaust with a 8" tip (I know, but I like it).

I am now in the market to upgrade some other stuff. I am ordering a D66 turbo, having a HPOP sent of for the T-500 mod and I am still debating on what injectors I want to go with. I will also be adding an intercooler (probably a DIY 6.0 intercooler and e99 spyder setup) and adding E-fuel by the end of the year, beginning early next year as well. I want my end goal over time to be about 500-550hp to the wheels. I wanted to get 238/100 injectors and was told the D66 will not enjoy them much and won't last very long. I was thinking I would get them since I don't want to buy another set of injectors when I am ready to jump up in the HP bracket and I would just get them detuned for now. I would like some thoughts from some other OBS drivers and people who know a little bit more about this then I do before I make any decisions I will regret.

Thanks

238's are kinda big. Though the D66 is an upgrade in our turbos it is still based on stock components. Defueling is a definite option but with a non-matching set-up you are going to want to up the turbo again kinda quick. Would it be too much to ask you to save up a little more money and contact Cary at CT_Performance (on here) about upping your lungs to a H2e or similar turbo. People still tow on 238's but for where I live it's too much. Just my

Oh, and 2x the tranny. Mines built too and I've still broken 2 of them with 160/100 injectors.

Yeah I know I will want a bigger turbo down the line. But I have done a lot of reading about people buying stage 1 or 2 injectors and say they wished they had gotten hybrids off the bat and detuned them. I know I will get to where I can use the full injector power one day, but would like to start a little lower and go from there. Money saving is tough (family, kids....wife....) but can be done. Even if I just get the injectors and hold on to them for now I guess I could do that, too. I just don't want to be part of that statistic that wishes they would have gotten larger injectors and didn't. I know tow much, have another truck that does most of the trailer pulling, this is mostly a street truck, maybe haul the quads to the coast in the bed that's about it.

But you would still recommend going with stage 2s? I could probably have the money saved for the H2E setup at the beginning of the year. Maybe just start collecting the stuff, I don't plan on putting anything on until I purchase everything anyways.

I love my Stage II's and being an American Muscle freak I'm always looking for more power. I just tow too much to warrant anything over Stage II's for myself. Eventually I'll have another truck to do the b!tch work and this thing will become the asphalt excavator I want it to be. Between this truck, the wifes Toyota Tacoma, my '97 'stang, '68 cougar 520" project car, '65 Ply. Satellite 440, '70 Roadrunner 440 project car, '65 Sunbeam Tiger (302 swap hehe), '65 Dodge Polara 426 drag car, and a '68 Roadrunner my wallets tapped out (EDIT: oh and the wife herself needs to be on this list but she knows that she's at the bottom )

There is nothing wrong with your goals, I am just a fan of do it once / do it right.
