Exclamation More power!

I have a friens with a 00' PS with a ts perf. 6 position chip, 4 inch exhaust, intake,nad a banks exhaust housing and wheel. The truck runs good but runs out of power in the higher RPM's(around 80 mph). He said it kinda falls on its face, still runs good but he wants more. What can be done to get some more power from his truck and whereto buy the parts thanks guys. DD

He is running out of HPO most likely... Dual HPOP's will help, about $2000... Or a bigger set of single shot injectors... about $1500...

He's got plenty to support the big oil. Lots of guys have run it with stock sticks, and it would definitely give him some more upper rpm power

The single shot injectors don't take as much oil to run, so he could use them with a single hpop,

Why didn't I think of that? That's a good thought. Also, if he's still got the stock turbo, the wastegate opening could be holding him back. Unplug the red line. Of course, then he'd definitely need a boost fooler.

I think the truck is simply running out of High Pressure Oil to be supplied to the injectors. Most of us 7.3L guys have athat issue at high speeds or high RPM's, best way to fix it is to install a dual HPOP system if you got the money for it.... not a "cheap mod" to say the least.
