I posted this in the 3rd Gen Peformance Parts forum but wanted to get my fellow locals opinion....

So I never ran my truck on a dyno but currently the performance mods I have are the Edge Juice with Attitude and Hot Unlock, Banks intake and a 4 inch straight pipe exhaust to a 6" single stack. I was considering selling the edge for a smarty but I like the fact that the edge has the defuel and the convertor lock/unlock to protect my truck tranny and motor a bit. I know the smarty works awesome because I have actually ran one on mine at a truck show for a bit but I am also not in the market for a new tranny at the moment. I would like to get HP around 425-450. With my set up now I was thinking to add an Air Dog system and some 90-100hp injector nozzles. Dont want to spend a ton on a cp3 upgrade either. Any idea what HP that would put me at approximately? Also any better ideas for a set up!!

Sorry for the long book I wrote just wanted to get everything out there before people comment.

I watched a bone stock 06 mega dyno on Dunbars rollers and put down 423hp with a Smarty on 9 and a muffler delete. Build a trans to hold that, it would prob load the engine for better power. A trans, manual gauges and a Smarty will make you a warm 440hp IMO.

Yeah that def sounds good and about right the only thing is I dont have 5K for a new tranny right now. I was thinking maybe just upgrading the converter to a triple disc which will run me about 1200 probably but for the same price I could have the fuel system and nozzles installed. I know they say nozzles can run your egt's up a bit without upgrading the turbo so that is another thing I have to think about. Its alwasy something I am learning, when you want one thing done there is something else that needs replaced or upgraded. Its never ending but yet we all love it!!

If your trans is not abused yet you can install a good converter and VB and you will be good for a while. Lock up switches are bad though.
