Elite or Beans? What would you guys do?

Hi guys, I have a '97 Power Stroke that I want to get more power out of, but keep as reliable as it is right now. I'm leaning toward Stage 1 injectors and a good tune from either Elite or Beans and am trying to make up my mind on who to go with. I hear a lot of good things from both. I'll probably throw on a 4-inch exhaust too, and maybe some gauges (pyro, boost) and was thinking about a TransGo shift kit to help preserve my E4OD's life.

Who would you guys go with? And, what hp numbers should I expect on the dyno with Stage 1's, exhaust and a tune?
Thanks

Re: Elite or Beans? What would you guys do?

Are you wanting to get your tunes and injectors from one place?

I have heard Great things about Beans, but have never used them...

Tadd has done great things and I am running a set of hybrids he went over for me... Run his tunes on occasion too. Good Stuff...

Stage 1's and tunes... about 320-340...

Yes, I was going to just buy Stage 1's, a good tune and 4-inch exhaust all from one place. I guess I could buy each separately, just though I might get a better deal if I bought all from the same place.

Buy them all from Tony Wildman. He can get you a package deal. http://www.totaldieselperformance.co...lts.asp?Cat=44

Fixed it for you. Gauges (well at least pyro) should be before any extra fuel is added.. Come on guys I cant believe someone else hasn't pointed this out...

Call up and talk with Bean. I would also recommend Ryan Casserly for the injectors.. PM "CASS" on here about injectors.
