Is it a good setup

I'm getting ready to build a 2005 Excursion with these mods: Towing compound setup from Innovative Diesel, Banks Techni-Cooler Intercooler, MKM master solution kit, the following mods are going to come from elite diesel: Twin HPOP Assy, Stage 3 competition fuel system, 295cc injectors, H-11 main stud kit, forged connecting rods, Heavy duty piston pins, Stage 2+ cam. Is it going to be a good setup and how much HP and Torque it will make.

Sounds like a sweet setup. Be sure to keep us updated with pics and videos.

P.S. Don't forget the NADP transmission!

Also, what are you running for tires and wheels? And if it were my truck, I'd change every fluid in the drivetrain (including front end gears, rear end gears, transfer case, etc.) to prepare for that much power. I'd also add some traction bars and some spray.

It may sound crazy but this is going to be my daily driver/show vehicle/tow vehicle/audio competition vehicle. I'm going be going with a 325/35r28. I know y'all probably think that isn't neccesary but guess who's going to be driving it me. For the transmission I'm going to go with an EDE transmission from elite diesel, if they can make the part billet its going to be in the transmission. Change those 295cc sticks to 430cc sticks. I'll add pics later because I'm still searching for a good truck to start off with that has low miles. I know I'm going to be making at least 700hp. But what suspension stuff should I do to help keep the rear from sagging from the added weight of 4-18inch subwoofers???

Rims are a little big for my taste. 24's or 26's even would be plenty big. And you NEED an NADP transmission, it will hold the power with no problem. It is the only transmission that I know of that has withstood hundreds of 1000+ HP track passes and dyno runs, only to be checked through and find NO damage or wear whatsoever.

430cc sticks will be way too big for a daily driver, IMO.

As far as the sagging, I'd add a Firestone Airbag Rear Helper kit with an onboard compressor tied into some train horns as well.

I was actually going to add train horns and tie them into them alarm system, I was actually thinking about going to 26s but I couldn't find tires with a good load rating. But do I go with helper nags with the b code springs?? What size sticks do you think are good for it.
