diesel power does an okay version of breaking it down in their build an x HP powerstroke for Y amount of money.
these groupings are my own personal groups.
1st group of mods: would be a 3" DP, gut/remove the cat/muffler, intake, gauges (for a manual get at least EGT and boost, i also have fuel pressure), chip. can easily be done for less than 1500 even if you buy top of the line parts. can be don't for much much less if you search craigslist and classifieds on sites like the ORG.
2nd group: IDM mod if you can solder you can do it for the cost of a resistor, or you can do the Swamps HVHF for $275, electric fuel (pre made kits cost around $1000 the kit i made was about $650 and i got what i wanted also can be done for less), HPOP (you can get a T500 for $449 or a SRP 1.1 for closer to $1000), upgraded clutch Southbend, valair, luk all make clutches i have a SB i think i paid a little over 750 for it, but i have noticed that the prices have gone up since 3 years ago
3rd group: IC can be done DIY style for 400ish or 1500 for a banks kit, Injectors stage ones normally run 1200 up to 2500 for bigger injectors, (rosewood use to offer budget built injectors for 500), turbo another area where you can spend lots of money a billet wheel rebuild kit and a 1.0 housing if you want to go that route will be less than 500, a D66 will be around 1200-1300, or a t4 mount with whatever charger you want can reach into 3000+ (or an H2E ect)
for 300 hp you can get there with the stock HPOP, fuel system, stock charger (assuming they are in good shape) a set of 160/0 injectors and a chip with custom tunes, in addition to intake/exhaust/gauges (gauges are just to make sure you don't melt something) and a clutch. should actually put you around 325ish
