1994.5 Powerstroke Performance

This is my first Powerstroke, I have previously had a 05 cummins. I just put money down on a 1994.5 Reg Cab F250 that has 33,000 miles. I have done some reading on this forum, but I am looking to get to 300hp. I was going to start with the following:

Tymar Intake $150
MBRP Exhaust $500
TW Tunes $450
SB 375hp Clutch $1,000

What do you think I should do in order with prices? And anything I should be aware of. It looks really clean and no rust at all. Can't imagine there would be to much to worry about with only 33,000 miles.

Thanks

33000 that's all? was it a government/forestry/state vehicle?

list looks god so far, i would skip the MBRP exhaust I have one in my 94.5 and the DP was a PITA to fit. people have had good luck with diamond eye and some of the others. Get some gauges EGT, and boost at the least, after those basics comes HPOP, E fuel, IC, Injectors and turbos, and it is and addiction good luck and welcome.

and we like pics.

personally i would also look for a D60 to replace the TTB with

yea, pretty amazing. It has 33,750 miles. I guess it was a grandpa truck, and when he died the son took it and didn't really drive it much. I don't think I have seen one anywhere close to that low of miles. I always read on this site what people should do, but not a clear order and cost. Thanks for the reply

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
