600 HP?

I can't decide on a cummins or a powerstroke. I want to make 600 HP and I know how to do it with a common rail cummins. Lately the powerstrokes have been growing on me though. If I get one it will probably be a 6.0 because I want something in the 2005 year range. So, what will it take to get a 6.0 to 600 Hp.

Decent set of injectors, probably over a 190cc, Fuel system, egr delete, headstuds, exhaust, tuning, IC, nitrous and alot of free time to fix it when it breaks down.

I'd go with the Cummins.

I think you'll get more reliability out of the Cummins. But it would be sweet to have a high-powered powerstroke just to be different and show the cummins and duramaxs that a 600 HP Powerstroke can be made and have fun with it.

If I were you I would try to snag up a new '08 6.4 powerstroke at a discounted price and build a badd azz 6.4. It would be easier to build power and torque with the 6.4 and more reliable too

Yes it could be done cheaper with the 6.4 minus the cost of the truck

+1 on the 6.4. You could just about get there on a DPF delete, tuner, and injectors. Throw in a little spray, and you'd be over the top. They're making 500 RWHP on a tuner and DPF delete alone.

I've seen brand new crew cab lariat 4x4 08s go for 36k range and low mileage used ones go for under 30.

cummins are fun, cheaper to mod but unless you putting one into your ford. IMO dodges are a piece of crap. my buddy has an 06 and my other friend has an 02...great engines. stupid trucks LOL

600 hp on fuel is going to cost A LOT on a 6.0. Even to spray your way there isn't going to be cheap. Not to say its cheap to do it to a CR, but its definately a lot easier and quite a bit less expensive.

A 6.4 and you can get there alot easier and quicker. A CR will get there a whole lot easier and quicker and a 6.0 will get there with alot of time and money.

Man I drove my buddies 05 Dodge Cummins and I was really impressed! Was my first time in one, stock it felt like it had tons of power. To bad it's a Dodge and I think they are ugly as all get out. I can see why people throw money into those motors...
