How Many are Pushing 500+ hp

Hey guys I was just curious to see how many folks were above 500 hp and what mods they had to do to get there?

That will only net you about 400-450 Hp to the wheels MAX...

To get to 500, you need larger injectors or a larger turbo along with being studded.

EGR delete is a very good idea, make sure the oil cooler is not clogged, and Fuel pressure are all things needed before planning high HP.

With 175/75% injectors I should be right around 500

Some dude in my town noticed my oh3 whistling and as far as I know it doesn't have anything done to it

He told me he has 5in and a chip/tune and was sitting right at 700ish. I feel bad for not calling him on it and believeing him kinda

That is ok that you believed him... Everyone learns and you just gotta realize that some people just talk out of their azz!!! He just added up all the hp adding numbers from all the "mods" he did... He added 10hp for every sticker he put on too I bet

Those numbers are VERY hard to get to on an average budget.
$2k for LARGE injectors
$5-8k for twin turbo set-up (Not counting MTW turbos)
$1k++ for a good fuel system
$5k++ For a tranny to hold that power
$1-3k for studding the truck

The guy talking about 700HP Doesn't even know how diesels work most likely

Oh I'm sure he was lieing. He was in college and there were a bunch of.beetches around. Haha I didn't really take it to heart. But looking back he was lieing out his ***.

Probably was doing like Cai=50 + 100exhaust and I'm sure the rims added atleast 250hp

After 450 hp, the stock TorqShift starts getting "challenged".

From here on out just assume big numbers are BS. Now I'm not saying big numbers are not possible, but big number guys don't exaggerate. Here is an example of pure BS. A few weeks back at Thoroughbred Diesel, I and the 2 guys I was with met a guy with a 6.0 that dynos at 575. He named off the mods and it sounded a little high but why would he lie. Afterall he was in line to dyno. After his pull, which we didn't watch, we ran into him and asked what he did. He reported 500 even and talked about weather and dyno operator. We were smart enough to know that those things do make a difference so we didn't call him out. Knowing what his number was we checked the board and found that he actually had a pull of 426, 174 HP off from his first claim. The truck we were in put down a corrected 501.3, he wouldn't talk to us anymore.
