Moderate Mods???

I've owned two OBS PSDs. I've mildly modded both and kept the stock injectors. Both ran tuners. My current tow rig is a 01' Excursion with a DP Tuner on it and similar mods. The 01' has plenty of power, but pulls my travel trailer terribly. Thus the need for a dually.

So, my new(to me) dually is needing a little more power than the other OBS trucks had. So, take a look at these and LMK if I need anything else. Truck has 173K. 1994 7.3L CC, DRW, LB, 2wd. Bone stock when I got it and pretty well neglected.

These are the planned mods at this point:
6637 DIY Intake (ordered)
4" Diamond Eye Exhaust (ordered)
Rosewood Stage 1 Injectors (sent out and should be back soon)
Gauges (Ordered)
PHP Hydra chip (ordered. Shipping 11/30)
400hp rated Valair clutch or South Bend (Ordering next)

I have a 7.3L intercooler and piping. Just need the E99 spider. I plan to do this when I find the spider and have the time.

The potential mods I might do if necessary:
1.0 housing for the stock turbo
Terminator T500 HPOP

Do you think the HPOP & 1.0 housing are necessary? Truck has 173K on it, but it was neglected. I'm bringing it back to life now.

Any other mods you would consider necessary with the stage 1s? Hoping to push around 350-375hp out of this. Is this about right for the mods listed?

It will be a DD on some days, but also used for towing my travel trailer and rock buggy around when needed.

i say e fuel one of my favorite mods and definitely do the T500. also you could do the 140 IDM easily and cheaply. personally i would never ever run a smaller turbo housing if you were going to tow. people say that stock turbo, IC and stage 1s are a great towing combo. i have no idea since i have never run it, but i like mine i have 2s that have been detuned and it is great towing

yes with you mods i believe your HP goal is certainly reasonably
