To get 300hp + total or a gain of 300 over what you have? If your truck is healthy, an intake, exhaust and good tunes should put you over 300hp. If your truck s not healthy, I'd suggest fixing it and maybe use upgraded parts first.

now to get 300 over stock, your gonna need a lot more than your list.

On stock tunes, with just a Ford AIS intake and 4" MBRP turbo back, my truck with 190,000 put down 242/504 hp/tq. With a good tune, similar trucks are putting 325-350hp

well 325 to 375 is right around where i want to be so maybe with some good tunes and decent injectors i can get up there but with just intake 4''mbrp and some tunes is a good place to start

you may not even need to upgrade injectors. you should be able to get an extra 100 horse out of your stockers

And drop the idea of head studs and an intercooler..... the stocker is fine.

You may want to invest in a fuel crossover to keep those rear injectors healthy. Especially if your going to get custom tunes.

I still have stock injectors with the 38r, put out between 350-375hp at the rear wheels. Thats with aFe stage 2, 4" and meth-injection. Got the bully dog gt too...for all the haters out there. Very dependable daily driver...gets beat on.
