Power Adders?

So if I get this straight, on the 12 Valve Mechanical Engines, there is no such thing as the infamous 53 block that was only for the 98.5 to 02 24 Valvers.

Also, no VP44. Instead a P Series Mechanical fuel pump.

Because of that, a there aren't any tuners or programmers available for the trucks. Right?

You are correct, you do the tuning by fiddling with you fuel plate and tuning the pump

Okay... then I wonder how I see people push 800 horses and four digit torque numbers?

Tuning the fuel plate, modified turbos, air intake, modified blocks, top-end, and such.

So what is some modifications you guys recommend to a newb looking to gain some additional horsepower?

And on a side note, what do you guys look for in purchasing a Cummins?

fuel plate, some kind of cold air intake, 4k governor spring kit (recommended you get 60 lb valve springs with the kit), then spend some time tuning your fuel pump right

If your talking about what kind of trucks we like i say 12 valve obviously, extended cab, long bed, 4x4 and manual tranny.

now if you talking about things to look out for check the front end over real well, 12 valves tend to tear up bushings and components in the front. Ask if the killer dowel pin has been taken care of, if the guy selling it doesn't know what that is it hasn't been addressed. Shaft play in the turbo. Check if the break off bolts on the injection pump are still there, if not the previous owner has done some pump tuning and you don't know if he f'd something up or if he made the thing fly down the road, could go either way.

Okay walk me through this I'm kind of new to diesel vehicles.

I understand the breakoff bolts on the pump, I've read on that.

And what exactly should I look at under the front end? Ball joints, tie-rods, so on?

preatty much everything that should and shouldnt move. Rebuilding the suspension and steering can get quite pricey.
