Anything for Powerstroke???

well i picked up this months issue of diesel world and i was flipping through i saw their article on a turbo upgrade for the D-max. (pg. 36)
well they calim all they did was upgade the turbo and they ended up making 622hp and 1183 tq.
now they did this with no internal upgardes to the motor?
i went to pacific performance engineering the place that had the kit they used, and they didnt have anything for the stroke,
now are these numbers possible on a stock PSD?
and is there a kit made to make these kind of numbers?
oh and he gets 21.8 MPG> with no other upgrades except the turbo and exhaust.

well thats a duramax for ya pushin big power easily....but i was told by a couple of guys on here that you practicly have to change the entire engine just to make 500 horse.....that it cant be done even with fass fuel system...huge turbo....edge w/attitude....different pistons...giant injectors...but i believe them i dont have a psd,,,,so i dont know but from the sounds of that i dont think they make a setup for strokers to do what a cummins and duramax can.....

well im not sure what year ford you was gunna go with but my suggestion is go with a d-max they seem to be the best bang for the buck.....but if your not lookin to go that new then go with a 12-valve cummins....put a turbo and fass fuel system on that and run some horse....easily...or 24-valve...just chip it and play...fass fuel on that with a chip and the power is amazing...my buddie has an 02 2500 4x4 sport with 3/4in fuel lines on his fass system it has crazy power and is fast as hell....ill probly get some crap for postin this on a ford forum but its my opinion that if you want good fast power for cheap dont get a powerstroke....

I must say, ever since the 7.3 power strokes have gone down hill...the early 6.0's killed there rep. and the 6.4's have a real bad rep for millage stock that is.. I know im done with PSD unless its a 7.3, id look for a 24V

Those numbers can be achieved with a powerstroke but because of the HEUI fuel system used in the 7.3 and 6.0 it costs more than it would to get those numbers out of DMax.

The downsides to the Dodge is the body and auto trans problems.
The chevys have electrical issues and crappy front suspensions

unfortunately there is not a cost effective way at this time.

What are you looking at a 7.3 6.0 or 6.4
