HORSEPOWER?

Any ideas about horsepower?
I have have an 02' 7.3 with a BD stage 2 turbo, 4" Banks elbow, true 4" exhaust all the way back, SCT Live Wire tuner running mid-range, F-650 HD tranny and an Air-raid cold air intake. Just curious about what some of you think I might be producing for horsepower... Thanks! T

That number is at the crank. You have to factor in parasitic loss.

That's good to know! How much do you usually charge? I think I need to send mine into SCT. It won't program my truck. It keeps having an error that says something about incorrect vehicle.... Ive already completely re-flashed and put the latest and greatest firmware on it...

Justin I have a SCT livewire and did not like the tunes that came on it at all. I returned the vehicle to stock after trying all three through two tanks of fuel each. My best mpgs were driving in stock configuration.
Do custom tunes on the livewire improve mpgs? I know that is a broad question with lots of variables, but on average...is their an increase and if so how much?
