I Have a 2000 7.3 and I plan on getting 238/100's, t-500 hpop, gtp38r, springs and pushrods, raptor 150gph pump, regulated return, and a good clutch, i have an exhaust and intake, and gauges already and a ts 6 position to have custom tuned for the modifications, with good tuning will i be safe without studs? What would be the max numbers i should see safely? And does this list need anything added to it and will it be relatively reliable hp?

Thanks 500hp seems a little much for me to feel safe without studs if its capable of making 500hp id want to run it at 450hp max. And people are using the same setup and making 500hp without studs is what your saying right?

I want 238/100's because theyre capable of making more power than i want, so down the line i could get studs and maybe a bigger turbo and have more hp but wouldnt they be fine for a 38r if tuned correctly?

thanks for all the input guys , i decided to do studs now that i have heard of people doing it with their motor in the truck and unbolting the mm's and jacking it either way to clear, i will have my trans out at the same time as installing all of the above and it shouldn't be too hard, im going to do the one stud at a time method and use my stock head gasket.
