First mod

Well less than 3 weeks after the purchase and I installed my first mod. I installed a 4'' TB MBRP and tomorrow I should receive my S&B. I noticed better throttle response and sound. Next I am planning on a chip from tony w.
What is it gonna take to get to 350 to 400 HP and be a towing beast?

congrats... but its going to take some good amount of money to get you over the 320hp mark to the wheels... you will need diff injectors easily...

the basic mods like your planning will get you to the 320hp range...

Well Ryan I also have an 06 that I am waiting to run out of warranty, to really get serios with the modes. Its a big difference at this point swapping from one to the other.

I know what you mean. My 6.0 just ran out of warrenty and slowly but surely I will do the mods. I also think I am going to buy another engine and just start on it and do everything I want and then install it when I blow a head gasket on this one. Then I will do a rebuild on the old engine. This pickup will die with me or my dad. We own a large ranch, so whenever I am done with it, it will go finish its life on the ranch.

You have your mods backwards, you should have done gauges first, then intake and exhaust mods, no need for a 4" system but that's water under the bridge now, support auto trans with a valvebody, I would also install a 6.0 cooler if you are going to tow a lot, many of the 2000's only had the puny oil to air cooler. The rad cooler wasn't added until late 2000 when many were over heating. You don't need the cooler in the rad, all I run is the 6.0 cooler and my temps are awesome. Congrats, to many the 2000 is the best year of the superduty's because of the forged rods. I have one too with 85K on the clock. Only after you have the above mods , minus trans cooler, should you add more ponies.
