Need advice on next mod...

Hi guys, Its been a long time since I've posted on here but I need some advice. I've got the exterior/interior the way I want it and now I'm getting ready to do some upgrades to the engine on my truck but I can't decide on what to do next. The truck is a 2000 CC LWB Dually, 6 Speed, 2wd, 168k miles. I primarily use the truck on the interstate (unloaded) but want to be able to pull my 10Klb fifth wheel camper too. I want a truck that makes reliable power and economy, not a finicky dragstrip queen. 400-450 rwhp is the rough goal, and I have about a $3500 budget. Here is what I have now engine wise:

Tymar (6637) and a Zoodad
Straight pipe on the stock exhaust
DP Tuner
Boost and Pyro Guages

I'm going to get 4" duals, Which one of our sponsors has the best deal on an aluminized or SS system.

I'm thinking of some new Injectors or a GTP38. Would you guys do the turbo or injectors first, and if you say injectors, Which one???? If not a turbo or injectors, the what would you do?

Thanks,

Joey

I would do a 38r 1st and a Regulated Fuel Return

THEN I would get some good Hybrids from Nate at Unlimited Diesel and some new tunes to match them.

IMO Get the tunes from who builds the Injectors

1999.5 Ford F-250 7.3l 4x4 PSD DI Short block, Ported Heads, Head studs, Over size valve springs, DI Push Rods, DI RR, GTP38R, GSL 392 fuel pump with 3/8 line feeding 238cc Injectors from Nate @ Unlimited Diesel and Live Tuned By Matt @ Gearhead Automotive

Auto to ZF6 Swap Completed

520hp and 926tq - 5/23/09

516hp and 1121tq - 4/24/10

Will I have enough fuel to run the 38r with just a chip? should I go with the 1.15 housing? What size hybrids would you recommend?

Thanks

Joey

I would do the turbo first. 38R will get you in the range you want. I wouldn't bother with the bigger turbine housing unless you have surge problems. Or you can just upgrade to the H2E kit and not worry about it. Then just get some standard hybrids. I wouldn't try to get anything made bigger than your standard Hybrid as you'll most likely start to run into hpo issues. You can have your current chip retuned or get a chip from someone else. Personally I'd recomend Bill from Power Hungry Performance.

'96 F-250 Extended Cab, long box 4X4, 4" lift, 35" tires
Injectors, Intercooler install kit-GTS Motorsports
Crower rods, H11 Head studs, Cam, Chip Diesel Innovations
Gen II HPOP, chip-Swamp's Diesel
Chip Live Tuned from Power Hungry
Current Chip Tuned by me!
Transmission BTS

38R first... and a 1.15 housing... wouldn't be a bad idea.

Fuel will be fine...

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..

Fuel shouldnt be an issue. Wouldnt be a bad idea to hook a fuel press gauge up and see what your running though. A RR kit is a good idea as bigstroker said above.

I would just stick with the 1.0 housing as your numbers are still relatively low.

I like "250ish" hybrids

99.5 F-250 Lariat 4x4 CC

-5" TB into 6" miter
-Recon smoked cab lights
-Bullydog "mileage" chip *Matts tunes in 2 weeks*
