2012 weight reduced trying to make some power

I have a 2012 white lariat ccsb with a sxe64.5 fully weight reduced with a tyrant file intake exhaust and traction bars it really seems sluggish def more power then stock. But doesn’t seem to be making the power others are claiming it should. What can I do to bump up the power some I was used to driving a 600whp diesel before this one and was hoping to be somewhere around that with this setup but it just doesn’t seem to be there any advice for me?

Non-vgt turbos are sluggish off the line. Other than adding on the 2015 HPFP or a stroker pump you need to talk to your tuning company.

Would a hpfp really make that much of a difference without injectors?

Is 600/650 HP not enough???
First it sounds like the tuning isn't right. Second if the tuning is right the next step should be a HPFP.


Maybe you have an exhaust leak somewhere. Did you do the work yourself???

Me and a few friends did it I had quite a few leaks but it seems that I’ve got them all tightened up except maybe the downpipe but that shouldn’t cause any power issues right? I’m not sure if the tunning is right it’s hard to get ahold of the tyrant guys and me being an idiot I bought a sct x4 so I don’t think I have anymore options especially with the communists shutting down everything. I’m pretty sure that this thing is no where near 600. The last truck I drove with 550whp made this truck feel like a moped. I’m not sure what this truck weighs but the last truck was 7200ish pounds so I know that will make a difference if this one weight a ton more. Sorry for being all over the place with this post

The X4 is a good unit to use, just need the file to be written correctly. Good luck.

Thanks hopefully someone else can weigh in and help out I was under the impression that a weight reduced tuned 6.7 with a 64.5 would make a fun daily driver. I’m also under the impression that my tuning isn’t the best but it’s what I have so I’m stuck with it for the time being until I can find someone else willing to tune it.

Are your tunes written for the non vgt 64.5? If they are it should be fueled heavier down low to help with the non vgt set up, BUT non vgt turbos will always be laggier than a VGT set up. But ultimately you need to data log some drives and work with your tuner to get it dialed in.

Yes it is I’ve tried to email back and forth with them about data logs and adjusting the tune with no luck. So you guys are thinking I should be pretty happy with this setup as long as I can get the tuning right? Also would a piping kit be worth it or is it just a waste of money for my power level?

If you are going to add on more mods, get them all done now. Then get the tuning written correctly so it's all set up correctly.



Yes, adding on a piping kit would help you even more with the air delivery to the motor. Add to that the 2015 HPFP......THEN you will be happy.
