*17 HPOP(High Pressure Oil Pump), Stg II's will make 400 but if you got a little extra $$ Stg III Hybirds which will be good for 500 hp with supporting mods

As far as a Turbo the D-66 from Beans Diesel will be good for 400 but if you plan to go bigger in the future do a Modded H2E

4 inch exhaust, TW or DP Custom Tuned Chip, Gauges, DIY Intake

Supporting Mods not neccessarily needed for 400hp but will be needed beyond 400 are Regulated Return Fuel System and FASS Fuel Pump

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

mods

I am definitely doing downpipe back with four inch. Will I have to do head studs no matter the stage injectors? Intake is on its way. I was also looking into injectors and am confused as to how they can rebuild my stock to build so much more HP while still using original tips? Thank you all for your help. Im ready to get starting just having trouble knowing where to begin.

head studs really aren't need till close to 500hp and they only use your stock injector nozzles on stage 1's
