you will need a good fuel system and a good HPOP

I would suggest both a 17* HPOP and e fuel

If you are doing this to your 03 you wont need a different HPOP....

so used to just looking at peoples sigs to see what they are working on

well, everything has already been said.
Your trans will pretty much be fine with 1's with whats done to it.
350 hp is a stretch, the best tuners with the best mods and best equipment can get 350, but it is possible with 1's
Definately need the HPOP, the stock 15* wont do it, it will run, but not nearly to what the 1's can do
The stock fuel system is fine, but electric is always good
for the most hp, make sure all supporting mods are done to get all you can out of the 1's
And, you already have the plans for the chip

I think Mike hit 376hp or something on Stage 1's didn't he? I've heard of people making more too. Hell I'm probably hitting about 350 hp, comparing it to other trucks I've seen with similar mods. I'd like to put it on a dyno now that I have the T500 in.

As of last night I can highly recommend a modified HPOP. My truck pulls harder now, even with a boost leak. I have a STOCK reman tranny with roughly 40k miles on it, and it's holding fine... for now

yes he did. i am not sure how accurate the dyno are. people like big HP numbers and dyno owners/operates might skew the numbers a little bit. I think track time and weight will give a better HP number

That it true. It's tough to get consistent HP numbers from different dyno's.
