400hp help

hello my name is Josh and Im somewhat new to diesels but Ive caught on pretty fast. I have a 1996 ford f250 that is all stock and I want to get about 400hp out of it but I need some advice on where to get the parts.
this is what I was thinking so far:
intake- tymar?
4in straightpipe exhaust with 3in DP
TW custom chip
stage 2 injectors- will those be big enough for 400+hp? also what ones to u recomend?
17* HPOP- will that handle stage 2s?
d66 turbo- will this handle to hp?
bts trans- or can I modify the stock one ?
intercooler- 7.3l SD or 6.0l?
i will have boost,trans temp,pyro gauges soon. sorry for all the questions

your on the right track, with the mods you've listed i did 420 rwhp and ran high 13's in the 1/4 with my old cc sb 4x4. I would get a BTS, doesnt matter which intercooler, 17*hpop would help.

I would look for a metal end 7.3 intercooler. The plastic ends have a history of blowing out under heavy boost, all stock 6.0 IC's are plastic.

ur def on the right track but with stage II sticks i might would bite the bullet and skip the 17* HPOP and jus go adrenaline. dieselsite.com sells them.

for turbo i would stay away form the H2E unless u want turbo lag. the H2E i had was kinda nice for sled pulling cuz it took jus long enough to light so the suspension could load and it wouldnt blow the tires off. it was a biotch tho for towing tho. jus my .02.

Here is what I would do.
DIY intake
4'' exhaust w/ 3'' DP
Custom tuned chip from whoever your injectors come from
A small set of hybrid injectors. (the can be detuned and dont use alot of oil)
17* hpop or have joey at terminator mod a 17* for you. (its like $100)
d66 or a modded H2E
BTS hands down. it will be the last trans youll ever buy
intercooler, 6.0 is larger but the 7.3 has metal ends and will hold up to higher boost


that should get you every bit of 400 probally more around 425-450

I agree that you would probably be better off with some standard hybrids. The price will be higher, but there are more benefits to a hybrid.

If he's just wanting 400 he should stick with 2's with 100% nozzels

100% nozzles could be too big for 400 he would be good with 80% and get better road manners.
