Power estimate?

So, I purchased a used truck a few weeks ago and after spending some time with it I am curious what kind of power an Early 99 would make with a 4" exhaust, aftermarket air filter & tube and a 6 position chip.

The previous owner sold it to go off to school, but he told me that the guy he got it from put a wicked wheel in it, but since then I have learned that all of the e99 trucks had a WW anyway so I really dont know what he meant by that?

Anyway, I have no real interest other than curiosity, I dont think I will ever need to turn that happy fun knob up to #6 anyway, but I am curious as to what HP they typically have. with these mods.

With stock internals and stock turbo you can do a few tunes ranging from 30-140 extra hp, however with a stock hpop after the 60 or 80hp tune you won't notice much until you upgrade the hpop. I drive mine daily on the 80hp tune, I drive it conservatively but just like the added quickness so it's not such a turd

The basic bolt on's typically get from 280-320 HP at the wheels
Your e99 has smaller injectors so it will be closer to the 280 mark

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Thanks for the info. I had not really considered that the injectors and the HPOP could limit the overall power the chip is trying to let it make. I feel its sufficient for what I will be doing with the truck, but I will keep upgrades in mind should something fail and need rebuilt/replaced.
