What would you do?

It is just about time for me to start ordering parts for my truck. It is my toy so I just want to have so fun with it,after 13 years it is time to have some fun! my question is this to you all, if you were in my shoes what would you do? turbo; 38R/s366/mod H2 or HFSB Turbo. injectors, tuner and anything else. I have read so much that my head is spinning and every time I call someone they want me to buy what they have. so what would you do for 400-500hp fun?

200cc+ injectors(hybrids)
38r or better turbo
custom tuned chip for your chosen turbo and injectors
regulated return (insurance for those injectors)
dual stock pump set up.


that will get you to that 400-500 mark should be close to the middle with proper tuning.

thanks, T4 S366 turbo would be better then the 38R?
Dual stock pump setup? I have not heard of this, how do I do it? I should not put my fuel tank in until I do this mod?

Yeah a t4 type turbo is always a good option because it opens you up to upgrades later on with a simple change. You could push either turbo close to the 500 mark but that's about it.

I will try to find a how to on the twin pump set up and you should be able to put your tank back in the stock pump is mounted on the frame rail. (honestly you could probably get away with out it but a couple hundred bucks for a good fuel system is cheaper than destroying a set of injectors from starving them of fuel. )

Also at that level I would run arp head studs.

since you have a six speed a good clutch

Thanks, good reading on the 2X pump. I was thinking about running the new fuel lines from the tank to the pump would be easier with the tank out. I will look into the pump mod. Yes [I] am seeing the s366 would be better if I would want to go more HP down the road and it looks like I should just do the studs now. do I need the spring? The clutch I think will be down the road.

Depends what is your final goal(or will there be)? Valve springs is what i assume when you say springs? And if i was that far into it I would go ahead and do it that way if you miss a shift or just want to rev it higher in the rpm range you wont have to worry about floating the valves under high boost.

yes, valve springs. My goal right now is 400-500HP but I am sure I would want more later!!!!LOL
is your DP 4" 90deg off the turbo then 4.5 down under then 5" pipe? I am going to make my DP & exhaust. I removed my EBPV and welded the holes closed but the outlet opening is only 2 7/8" ID and 3 1/4" OD and the out side of the flange is only 4 3/16" for the clamp. Do I need to get a special pipe flange and or different high flow outlet?
