you can easily get to 400hp without 191s. do you wanna get there on budget or can you spend a little extra. also do you tow? if so how much. on budget you could grind your plate to a #100, afc forward, starwheel cranked, 3gsk, 370 injectors or edm yours, htt 60mm turbo upgrade, 16.5* or so timing, BHAF or something similar, farmboys 4-5" exhaust. and dont forget gauges. i recommend them to +10hp over stock trucks. boost, pyro, trans temp.

its not bad at all. just the delivery valve would be a little overkill for the 400hp mark. and they would build excessive heat without an expensive turbo to keep them in check. 800+ had been made on stock DVs. if you curious about plate modding just take off the afc housing, pull the plate and have at it with a die grinder. make it look similar to a pic on the cumminsforum(#100). go on ebay and get the penascola injectors. they are like $204 for a new set of 90ish hp. you got the exhaust. make an intake from pvc and plumbing pipe from home depot and paint it black. buy a BHAF that is used on big semis and commercial trucks. or i would recommend an amsoil nanofiber because they are a dry flow lifetime filter and you would only need to buy it once. go on the high tech turbo website and look at their stage 3or4 upgraded(60mm 6 fin) compressor. or if you have a connection on a s300 that would work too. ask the cumminsforum sponsors how much for a 3000rpm governor spring kit and take it to a shop and have them install it and do the timing advance. hope this helps.:thumbsup
