Safe HP?

So i want to keep adding power to the truck but I want to do it safely so that it may be able to keep its reliability and longevity of the engine. I was wondering what HP frame would be the safest for a hot daily driver? And how would most of you get there?

Thanks in advance, Leon

In a perfect world where I have all the $$$ possible to toss into my truck...this is what I would do...

Custom programming on my 6 pos chip
Keep my Jobe Intake and 5" exhaust
Buy an H2E turbo
Headstuds and fire rings
Big Oil and Injectors
Fuel system
Oil bypass (like the FASS)

That would make the truck VERY quick and more reliable than it is now, but of course, you would be out about $20K

Without breaking the block apart, I would keep the power to about 350hp at the wheels. I'm at around 315whp (guesstimate). That would mean everything listed above minus the firerings. Headstuds would be top on the list after everything else.

For your engine. Chip it and be done w/ it.

For your tranny - get it built up.

Safe/reliable... anymore power and you're exerting that HP on all internal components that were only designed for 200+/- hp...

You'll first have to find out if you have forged rods or not. That would change the answer by a fairly significant #
