Build quality

I will lead with the appreciation of the quality of service from the folks at DAP.
Well done to all of you there, keep making us happy.
After speaking with them again today lol, I'm winding down on the completion of my build. It includes and will have the following.
7x.11 vco injectors arriving tomorrow from DAP
Revmax 47re trans
Fass lp
Exhaust manifold
Tunnel ram arriving from DAP
103lb springs
S&B intake horn
S&B cold air intake
Edge ez
Tst pm3
HTT 62/65/14 sxe turbo
4" straight exhaust
Head studs
Secondary trans cooler
New radiator
New oil cooler
Mechanical fuel, pyro, trans temp, boost gauges

Ordering pushrods after speaking with DAP today
In the next couple months ordering the Adrenaline v2 and compound kit including the S475

Do you guys think it will be a reliable build for bringing new life to my old truck, or did I miss anything?
And what kind of power will it produce at the wheels? I'm imagining somewhere around 550 to 575.

Goal is a fun truck that can still be used as a truck when needed. I appreciate your time for responses guys.

Looks like a fun truck to me.
The only way to find out about your horsepower is to make some runs at your local chassis dyno shop.
It's a fun thing to do.

I love these old trucks. Sounds like I'll have more power than intended but that's ok. As long as its street and tow friendly anyhow. But yeah I did the vco injectors after watching a bunch of Nick's videos on his results with them. Ultimately I want a fun truck capable of a long happy life, ya know.

I live in the Northern Virginia area and have never heard of or seen a dyno here. Would you guys know of one close enough by me?

I prefer good quality vco's for a dd.

You may as well get the Edge "hot unlocked". When I was still running a vp my 62/75 setup felt alot better going from comp to comp drag. You'll have the valvetrain for it.

Would be interesting to see the results if you do dyno it. 650hp would be stretching if I was to guess.

Once I get everything put on the truck I will start che king around for a dyno just to see some actual numbers of where I end up. I have been happy with my edge/tst combo but after reading about the v2 from adrenaline and the offer of any support necessary to get it set up from the folks at DAP I am going to try that.

I'm not super confident in the fact I understand completely how to figure some of the parameters, but I keep reading and watching videos on it. Has anyone felt this way before getting one, only to find it to be easier than expected.

Killer setup! how do you like the 62/65/14? I've been looking at the Smeding billet one, heard great things about that turbo size.
