Stage 1's and a custom tune will drain the oil rail.

you can either 1 rebuild and upgrade your stock hpop by sending it out to one of our sponsors<cheapest route> 2 you could go with the adereline hpop around 550$ carried by our sponsors or you can go all out with the stealth if your looking for over 400hp

o and persoanlly ill be going with dp mainly because hes got solid tunes and can upload my sct, junk the edge for sure there are a bunch of great custom tuners for fair prices, start by setting your self a goal to reach with your truck then work towards it, as for a fuel pump in the 7.3 tech files theres a simple write up marty did using his stock pump along with a stock replacment ill be trying that, it looks and proved to work well enough for anything up to stage 2's. remember your stock fuel pump loves to push fuel but hates to pull it so just by moving your stock pump further back towards the tank from under the driver seat. you can see gains in fuel pressure and reliability. your fuel system has a lot of flaws with the quick disconnects and all the screens and filter in your tank while your messing with the pump clean it up and rid off all the junk simple solid fuel hose works great! there are other good fuel system upgrades such as regulated return kits and bowl deletes for about 550 most the sponsors on here have a kit, riff raff also has the frx that helps the fuel system out a lot too. good luck.

Stealth SRP1...under $700 and is all new..New Stealth pump announcement

With PMR's..stick to stage 1's play it safe IMO as no one can say when a PMR will let go.

Your stock HPOP will handle stage 1's fine unless just plane worn out.

Your fuel system is fine , you could add a reg return.

Turbo..GT38r or a D66..I have a new one thats priced to go..

Nice screen name....

But anyhow, here's what I would do considering you have PMR's.

Ditch the Spectre intake unless you plan on buying another compressor wheel and replace it with a 6637 filter or Donaldson filter.

Ditch the Edge and get custom tunes.

38r or the a Precision turbo from Elite Diesel. The Precision turbo is a thrust bearing turbo but is in the same price range and is expected to outperform the 38r slightly.

200cc Hybrids. Why? they are still conservative but have potential if you want to open them up. You will not need an aftermarket HPOP (depending on your hpop's condition) because these will require less oil to operate compared to stage 1's.

As far as custom tuning.... That is a toss up. People will preach all day long about their tuner being the best but in reality what's best is up to you. I have had custom tunes from 4 different people and they all have their differences. They will all make about the same amount of power but what works best with your driving style and your truck will be up to you to decide.

Good tuners to start off with are PHP, Matt @ Gearhead, Beans, Swamps, Cale Thomas, DI, Innovative, Elite, DP, WOP, and the list goes on.
