Do you need to upgrade HPOP for tuner?

My younger cousin just picked one of these up, and were both fairly new to diesels. I have a 6.0, his is the 7.3, obviously. I know on the 6.0 you can just plug and play with the SCT tuner. But hes been looking and reading and he asked me if he needed to upgrade his HPOP to run a DP tuner, I said I dont think so. But maybe its an upgrade that he mistakenly took it as mandatory? Any help for him is appreciated.

Stock HPOP is fine for just a tuner.

It really depends on the condition of his stock HPOP. His truck will have a 15* HPOP stock which is inferior to the 17* HPOP on the SD trucks. If it is in good condition, he should be fine. But if it is weak, he will not see the full potential of the tunes. Some OBS guys choose to just put a 17* HPOP on and call it good. However, the better option, and one I recommend, is to upgrade to a T500. The price for a T500 and a stock 17* pump is about the same and you will see more benefit. We carry them if he is interested in one.

Tell him to get a hold of me if he has any questions. I would be happy to help him out.

Like the others have said, it's just a supporting mod but it can make a big difference. I run DP tunes on both my trucks, my 00 was only making 1800 psi on the stock 17* HPOP and a SRP-1 made a huge difference. My 95 makes 2500 psi on the stock 15* HPOP and it probably won't get upgraded till I get larger injectors. The best thing to do is hookup a scanner and see what your pressure is at WOT on your hottest tune. If you can maintain close to 3000 psi then you won't see much of a improvement.

Wow! What did your IPR duty cycle look like? That pump sounds like it had seen better days.
