T500 vs Tunes?

Hey guys, I have been wanting to order tunes here for a while and I was getting ready to pull the trigger but I was wondering, would it be worth it to get an hpop like the t500 for my e99 before i got tunes to make it more beneficial? I plan eventually on doing hpop, injectors, turbo, ect... but for the next couple years, i was just going to run exhaust/intake/tunes; that is, unless there is a huge benefit adding a t500 before i do tunes. For now, im just looking for a solid/ strong /reliable running truck, not looking to win races or put up numbers.
Thanks,
Dan

Best way to tell if you need one would be to do a WOT run in OD from 60-90mph. You will need to have a scan tool hooked up that can monitor ICP and IPR duty cycle. You will want to watch where ICP levels out at and what your IPR duty cycle is. A low ICP and high duty cycle would be an indication that you could benefit from a better HPOP.

However, adding a T500 is never a bad idea anyway.

Should be able to. You may want to check with Edge first though.

An HPOP on any 7.3L is a good idea, weak or not there are benefits. Once you go to a tuner the hpop will be even more noticeable.

LOL... I've made more HP than 90% of the people in the 7.3 forum... of a stock 250k 17* hpop.

If its a healthy pump, get a chip and enjoy... I'm not one for replacing parts that are working.

As well if you're going to do a HPOP, there are better options available.

I have been running PHP tunes for 3yrs now. My stock HPOP does fine except for full throttle or towing heavy. I will throw a low icp code after about 15 seconds of full throttle or going up long, steep grades. Replacing it would be nice and I am sure there would be a decent power increase, however I can't justify the cost for a little bit of performance.

Just imagine how much more power you could have made if you had a decent HPOP.

The T-500 is a great option if you decide to upgrade. You won't be disappointed.

ICP pressures and duty cycles were right where my tuner requested them, so... I would not have made more...

Thats what some of you bandwagon people don't get...

So one post, registering today, got to be someone hiding behind a user name...
