Upgrade questions

I'm diggin' my 2000 F-350 but plans are a foot for some performance mods. In general, I'll be towing a 10k pound 5er RV trailer in fairly mountainous terraine. I'm not looking to build a wheel-stander for the drag strip or anything, and reliability needs to be good.

What I'm thinking of so far:

SRP1 HPOP
Swamps 200/30 hybrid injectors
Regulated return
S366 turbo system (probably from Irate Diesel)
DiamondEye 4" turbo-back exhaust
PHP Phoenix chip
Upgraded Southbend clutch assembly
Upgraded fuel filtering, Baldwin pre-filter at the minimum

Truck already has a 6637 installed. IC boots will all be replaced for maintenance as well.

I don't really have a specific horsepower target. With proper tuning what do you think a setup like this would put out? Are any of the items included inappropriate from a "complete package" perspective?

Is anyone running dual Bosch 044 pumps in parallel for fuel flow? Or is that even necessary at this performance level.

With the mods you listed I think you will be around the 500 mark but I may be off a bit. Also with that set up you will need headstuds and valvesprings.

Yikes. Lol. I didn't realize that gear added up to that sort of HP.

So...what if I was shooting for an honest 400HP? What would I drop off the list?

I see you're going to use php tunes. He has a build thread where he took a stock truck with only 6637 intake and put stage 1 injectors in only. Made 399 hp/946 ft lbs. That should give you a gauge.

you will never be a 500 horse with those injectors, most make like 425 with those, personally i think that puttin that small a nozzle on a 200cc injector is retarded. i would do 160/100 or 200/80 before i did 200/30's. you can get 250/80's for 1850 and those work pretty good with the s366 but you will need an external wastegate

IMO forget the Hybrids esp with 30% nozzles..

Get Stage 1's either 160's good to 370HP or 180's with a SRP1 good to 400HP.
South bend
38r
TS chip with custom tunes..TW would be my pick
BD brake, will love it in the mountains
Reg return
gauges and exhaust

Above will tow as good as anything out if not better, great MPG's and reliable..
