looking for help/opinions

hey there,
I have a 99 f350 7.3l 4wd. Im looking to do either a WW2 or BD compressor wheel and possibly a Banks wastegate actuator. Also an AFE bladerunner intake manifold and eventually a water methanol injection setup.
Currently I have on my truck a c.a.i system, 4"turbo back to 5" and 8" stacks, along with a TS-Performance 6 position chip.

What id like to know is Whats better to do for my application and what else i should do. I want to eventually do Injections, Fuel Pump and HPOP upgrades. Thanks for you advice and help.

Oooh all i want to so is beat my boss's Vette!

I'd go with a diesel site waste gate over a banks, depens on how much you wanna spend??? If ur gonna upgrade injectors could always go with a 38r turbo and not worry about putting a different wheel in. FYI ur gonna need more than a wheel and a waste gate to beat a vet

It all depends on the HP level you want.

Check THIS out for the wheel and wastegate.

No problem!

Just choose an end goal as far as power goes and purchase parts that will work at that power level. That way you will not spend a bunch of money on parts that will eventually be coming off the truck.

Around 800rwhp is my goal. I read alot of Diesel World and Diesel Power magazine and they do alot of tech tips and pictures of their 'Projects' and luckily they are older SDs like mine.
I appreciate all your guys' input

800HP will cost you a pretty penny, and at that point your truck will not be a very good daily driver. However, if you want to go that high it can be done.

Whats your suggestion as a daily driver rating?
I do zero towing unless its an occasional couch, bought her because i love big trucks and diesels.
I do alot of highway driving as well, around 650 miles round trip. Currently getting 21mpg at 55-58 mph

A good DD goal IMO would be about 450HP. It is very easy to reach 400HP, but getting to 500HP has much more involved(as far as modifications and money goes).
