290? No 7.3 in our trucks came with that much hp.

Your truck will dyno aroudn 200 hp in stock trim. Add your mods and you're likely pushing 310ish...

Your truck puts out 235 or 250 AT THE FLYWHEEL... Which is about 210-220 at the rear wheels...

so i cant go over 400 hp with my stock rods
400 RWHP (rear wheel hp) is the magic number for breaking the rods that are in your truck. You will have to an injector and turbo upgrade to see 400hp on your truck, the setup you got now will be perfrectly safe. As soon as you start getting crazy with the power mods, you start breaking stuff. And if your looking to get 600hp, plan on spending a ton of money on your truck. Like stated before by Albie30... you lookin at like $15K+.
