Lift pump needs to be first priority otherwise you'll end up killing your VP. A FASS, Airdog, or a Raptor will cover that issue. After that i would say get a good programmer (Edge Comp, Quad Adren, Smarty) and then a good set of injectors. Thats just the basics it seems for these trucks and it seems to wake them up alot. Just make sure if your shooting for 500hp your transmission can handle it
fass,raptor, air dog a 62/71/12 or a 62/65/14 150s programer/chip intake exhaust and a clutch or a stout trans will get u there for sure
if u want a real nice realiable 500 i would do edge juice/quad adrenline/ tst comp, ts mvp stack for a chip, tunnelram plate, intercooler(yes i know expensive but they do help) intake horn, cold air, sdx/ddps/f1 injectors at least 150hp, 5in exhaust, 62/65/14 or 62/71/15 single or a hx35 or hx40 over a ht3b for twins, a fass/airdog/ratpor lift pump with draw straw, exhaust manifold, head studs, 110# springs,(i would prefer hamitlon) , pushrods, maybe some watermeth, and a cam if u would like faster spoolup. and last but not least a fluidamper, that is my goal for my truck but i want to push 600 so i would do bigger twins and injectors but what i just listed should defintley get you 500+ hp pretty easily and still drive fine on the streets. oh ya dont forget to get a nice double disk clutch or a built auto.
hope this helped. let us know how it turns out!!
