Stroken'-Stine Upgrades

So... I currently have one hell of a project going on. (look at my sig). The general idea and plans for this truck is to be a DAILY DRIVING, 500hp, SLED PULLER.

this is what i have thus far:
stock turbo 1.00 A/r compressor housing
welded closed wastegate (i know i have to be careful with it)
welded open EBPV
R/R, DIY fuel system, Fuel bowl delete:
fuel sump
stock SD fuel pump
pre n post filters

so... the question is... what next... Injectors, t4 style set up, hpop? With what i already have done, what can i do next to get close to achieving my 500hp daily driving goal?

I would run:
T4 with a gated 366, 472
238/100 or 250s
Dual sd pumps, fuel lab or aeromotive.
Studs and valve springs,
Built trans.
This stuff will get you there without maxing anything out. Also double check to be sure you have forged rods.

For Trans I have a ZF5 with a 500hp 900ftlb clutch.

My main dilemma is figuring out what I can do next. Do I go with injectors n leave my turbo? Or do I go ahead n do the turbo now and wait on injectors.... I'm building this truck more or less on a budget. With that said I do all the fab work and mechanical aspects on my own. I'm in college n I'm doing all of this in my driveway at my campus house. So I do what I can.

Dose anyone have a pattern I could use for a t4 pedistle?

I would go turbo first, the injectors will destroy the stock turbo if you put bigger injectors to it.

You are going to get a lot of "the stock turbo will handle bigger injectors", but in fact it won't. Go turbo first or if the plan is to go with a turbo big enough that it will be laggy with stock injectors, wait and get both. You will end up forcing yourself to buy a new turbo before planned if you throw big injectors at it first.

Yea I assumed that much. I want to do turbo but I'm thinking something sort of a gt40 or the 400 series Borg Warner. Which I think will be a bit laggy for stock sticks. But I'm hoping someone else has experimented with this and might have some insite. I was thinking of doing the idm 140v mod with terminator hpop n rosewood 238/100s I'm trying to build a good base of supports to handle big sticks n t4 turbo set up... For turbo choise however, I'm really confused with what I want. Mainly housing size and cold side inlet size

right now i have a s366 with a t4 mount, i love it I'm saving up for injectors, fuel pump, and hpop right now, i would say the turbo first was one of the best choices i made.
