More power to me you need deep pockets if you do these motors will take it for a while then you will have to install ARP studs and with the price of fuel but the only one i would do is the SCT X3 it works with the trans they can wright one that may save your truck but it will save the trans.

You are at about the limit of what you can do without head studs and putting real $$$ into your truck. From here you'll need a fuel system, bigger turbo and bigger injectors and if you do that you will probably need a beefed up transmission too. So from here you're looking at $5k-$10 so ante up or leave it be.

It doesn't cost that much if you do it all your self and buy used. But yes it is very exspensive.

Like others said the only way to get more power is injectors because it is your most limiting factor. But you can't just throw some 190s in it. That's where it gets expensive.

gotta pay to play!

but boy is it fun if you can. I built the crap out of my mustang, ended up with 622rwhp and 710rwtq on 91 and drove it on the street. It took double what I initially estimated to get it there reliably, and now it needs freshening up 30k miles later. But I love that car.

My truck, I am happy with the performance of the Extreeme Street tuning..... for now. Do not have the funds to go nuts on a vehicle again for years haha.

I have been towing with my Max Energy for the past 4 years on my standard truck. No problem at all and the performance I get is from a completely stock truck.

Hypertech did the performance testing and I do the towing.
