Power increase questions

Hey guys, I want to get a bit more power out on my 7.3
as it sits at the moment I have the mods that are in my sig.
I have a rough idea of what Im aiming for and what I want to get, weather or not its recomemded to do these upgrades or not and if ill get what I want is why im asking these questions hahah

1. My goal is 200kw -250kw (268hp - 335hp) and 1000nm torque at the wheels, anything above this is a bonus

2. As stated my current mods are listed in my sig, I have a tuner, but apart from that and a exhast, nothing else.

Im looking at a Banks intercooler and piping upgrade, CFM intake and Garret GTP38R turbo

3. Will these mods get me too my goal or will I have to do injectors aswell

4. Will the stock transmission handle all these mods ( I have future plans to upgrade the trans)

5. Will the truck still be reliable as a everyday/offroad drive

Any help or any other suggestions on how to get what im aiming for would be appreciated
THanks

Just injectors and good tunes will get you to 350 easliy if not more depending on how much you wanna push the stock turbo.

Get a TS style chip with custome tunes and your at about 300 without injectors.

Off topic but how much is 1000nm tq in standard? Back on topic turbo injectors and a good tune will have you around 400 hp and over 800 tq. About 3200 dollars will be for hybrid injectors g38 turbo and a ts chip. To do this you will need gauges and would say exhaust also.

You will not see much more than 330HP with stock inj's tunes-turbo doesn't matter. You want more its Inj's, turbo and custom tunes. Your IC is fine..CFM intake..will just lighten your wallet nothing more.

Stage 1's, 38r TS chip with custom tunes..can get you what your looking for and its safe for a PMR engine larger inj's are not unless they are detuned then what's the point.

PM me if I can help get you what's needed to reach your goals without wasting $

Not trying to thread jack but im in the same boat and i have a feeling my question will help the original poster.

Money isnt flowing out of my pockets and saving up to do everything at once seems near impossible so if i/we where to do one mod at a time (stage 1 injectors/ 38r turbo) which one is the safest one to do first to get good HP gain without hurting the motor? Also what type of MPG can be expected with these upgrades as that is a factor for me, i dont know if it is for most.....I know the more power your making the more fuel your burning but an idea as to MPG would be nice to know. Thanks in advance for the help.

You can do either on of those first, but most choose to do the injectors. A lot of guys run stage 1 injectors with the stock turbo and have been for years. However, the 38R is a great compliment to stage 1's and can take much more of a beating.
