Build Reccomendations 600+HP
Pickup is a 2008 6.7 2500
I smoked the stock trans in this truck about 7 months ago playing around in my hot tune. After going back and forth with myself, devils advocate prevailed. Knowing that the time would come where I wanted to build more HP, I decided upon a Revmax Signature Series 700
Truck is tuned through PPEI and Deleted, FASS 150 series, stock motor top to bottom, 5" exhaust to the back. I put the FASS on sometime ago due to my concerns with fuel quality in my rural area.
With the transmission in there, at this point I have taken care of one of the most costly upfront component prior to pushing more fuel through this machine
I've got a shopping-list that I wanted some input on,
-58 LPM Dragon Flow Injectors from T&C Diesel Performance (accompanied by a Stroked Pump from T&C as well)
-ARP 625 Head Studs
-Stock Cummins Head Gasket
-103 Valve Springs and Tool Steel Retainers from Hamilton
-Hamilton Heavy Duty Push Rods
-XDP Fuel Canister Delete (My FASS system with CAT filters are more than adequate)
This is where I'm at a loss, I'd like to stick with a VGT turbo but I question that with a Upgraded VGT set-up will it hold me back when I want to pour the fuel? but still have street drive-ability.
I'm not interested in a compound set-up as I don't feel that's necessary to get me to where I'd like to build to (650-700HP) and I'm not interested in doing the tedious fabrication to do that.
I'd like to get this figured out soon so I can get this head pulled and checked and decked if need be. Then proceed with getting the rest of my components ordered.
I could use some direction and suggestions on the turbo set-up, as for the rest of my list, It's pretty cookie cutter for adding some strength to the Top End. Throw some suggestions down on your set-ups and your likes/dis-likes about them.
