Building a dream truck

Hey i was looking for some help finishing my build.. I'm looking for around 700 hp and beyond whatever is manageable and reliable for street.. i don't tow or even drive my truck that often so its somewhat of a toy... i don't do pulls either..

2001 cummins - 80xxx km
As of now i have edge cts, 5" exhaust, fass 150, cold air intake, lift tires etc...
And its an automatic

Im looking to build my truck "bulletproof"
Im going twins and need help deciding between ATS, Industrial Injection, and BD.. price doesn't really matter as id like to just get it done right the first time!! I really want my engine bay to look nice and clean as well maybe get some of the parts powder coated..

Im stuck between 150 and 200 horse injectors as well.. i found DDP and Industrial injection so far that offer those sizes however industrials is a fair chunk more expensive..

Is there much of a difference between ATS, BD, and PPE trannys? and what stage of tranny wil i need.. billet intermediate, output and that necessary?
And is the hot rod vp the way to go?
Ive never built one before and i just don't want to buy it all and wish i had got something different after ..

Any info is appreciated.. thanks

As far as pumps go if you decide to stay a vp44 I would not buy anything but a monster pump. They fuel very hard and are reliable. But honestly p pump is the way to go for less headache. I'm just a glutton for punishment I suppose. As far as the rest of the question, the possibilities are endless. Pull up a chair at the computer and grab yourself some search function. You'll be suprised what you'll find.

And go to Stainless Diesel for your chargers. He's the best hands down.

If you did a little research like most do, youll find some very good answers. Part of the fun and learning process is finding info and putting things together.

Heres an example, if you didnt know how to have sex, would you rather me do all the work by pounding your gf or would you rather figure it out for yourself?

For the trans I'd go with either Goerend, Garmon, or TRE.

Going with a ppump will cause you to loose any programmer. They are all mechanical. Also a s.o vp44 is good up to 600-700hp.

The only downside to a P pump is it's turned up all the time whereas a vp with a chip or programmer can be turned to different power levels or returned to stock with a flick of a switch.

Am I the only one who knows everything?
