How much power will I be able to safely handle with a new Tq. Converter and Valvebody. Also, what brands and prices.:$:
with a single disk suncoast and vb your only weak link is the clutches and input shaft, you should be able to make about 400-450 with out any issues, just watch how much you tow and how hard you are on the peddle.How much power will I be able to safely handle with a new Tq. Converter and Valvebody. Also, what brands and prices.:$:
Well then we need to know a few things, do you tow?(If so how heavy) Do you plan on racing? And whats your price range? It all comes down to how much you want to spend, if it was me I'd be buying a ball bearing turbo. They can't be beat! Especially BB twins! But thats big money 8k+Well my goal is about 600 RWHP. With my current mods what else would you think I need? Im getting a Wicked Diesel CP3 and an Airdog. As far as turbos and transmissions, I want opinions.
For 600hp you need a good size single or twin turbos. At that point you really need at least 50 hp sticks, realistically more like 90hp. Airdog and the modded cp3 will help the cause.Well my goal is about 600 RWHP. With my current mods what else would you think I need? Im getting a Wicked Diesel CP3 and an Airdog.

Do you have the hot code or not? Long range something like a smarty or ppe programmer will take better care of your higher horsepower needs.Thats crazy. I saw that II had a 800 Horsepower kit for like 8k. How come all that money is being spent so quickly? How much horsepower does the truch have now, as is? Should I lose the Edge and Puck and run a Smarty?
If you decide to get rid of the edge, keep the puck, it will work well with the Smarty. You may want to just bite the bullet and get a whole new trans for the truck from HTS. If your tough on the truck at all, the stock clutch packs won't last long.
Ahh, lay off the dope man, better yet send me some of that stuff your smokin.......:rof:beerNot true the stock clutch packs will hold alot of power with the right pressures.
There are guys push 800+ on stock clutch packs, flex plates intermidiate and output shafts and launching at 20+psi.
The question is what do you want to do with it? Tow, pull, race?
This makes a difference as to what you need single disk or triple disk TQ. Billet int. and output, upgraded clutch packs and so on.
At minimum I wouldnt do less then TC, billet input, VB and kevlar 1-2 apply strap.
