Re: What next?

Fuel system and injectors. It'll run like a rapped ape. Oh and also a coolant filter I'd prob do that first though.

78 F-150 300 straight 6, 3 on the tree
03 F-250 6.0 Play toy
06 F-250 6.0 (general nightmare) 2.5 pulling truck
12 F-350 6.7 Tow rig

Gotta pay to play son!

Re: What next?

rebuild your oil cooler if not done already, blue spring upgrade in the regulator, coolant filter...

completley stock truck...just a simple cat back system....and maybe a few other odds and ends

Re: What next?

From my experience I'd build it up first, ex. your transmission if your wanting to add alot of power, then gauges intake and custom tunes. But that is just IMO. I started adding too much power to my 6.0 before building the tranny and ending up slipping it bad and having to get a more sturdy one

Re: What next?

Re: What next?

If your not looking to do over 500hp i would think your stock trans will be fine, maybe a shift kit or something along those lines. I would also hold on to the stock air intake, they are way better than most aftermarket ones to 500hp. If your looking to peak those numbers, then i would look into those.

I always hear that, but i was not so fortunate. Not trying to contradict you, i respect you're views, but just sharing my experience.

#### started slipping bad with 155's, vgt ss and sct tuned by innovative (by no means innovative's fault) with around 140,xxx on the truck, 10k after the rebuild..

did a built trans, no problems since (20k miles).....well maybe a slight shift flare that i can not seem to shake

I didn't know how far he wanted to go on power and it might not be an auto
