i have a 2002 7.3L 6 speed. it has a spectre intake, banks 4 inch straight pipe exhaust,xdp compressor wheel, and a edge evolution programmer. i wanna run some stage one single shots and a bigger ball bearing turbo with a custom tune, and a new fuel pump(what kind?). how big can i go before i start runnin into oil supply problems, or mechanical malfunction? also what brands should i go with for the injectors turbo and fuel pump and who has the best custom tune?
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.
