want your opinions

gotta 99 f250SD, Ive built alot of gas race engines.Ive hada love for PS's since i worked at a dealer when they 1st came out. I finally have one.Recently the IDM crapped out and ive decided to built it like i want it.
I spoke with "SWAMPS" and they have me almost completly talked into thier "200" injectors (w/chip),exhaust and thier IDM. Ive exhausted my brain on research. What do you think???? I want a bad ass truck.they seem to know what thier doin. Im a firm believer in listen to everyone but divise your own plan. so...... lets have it! ps... i have concerns about transmision reliability.will it hild up to that kind of power???? swamps claims 400+rwhp!???

Re: want your opinions

swamps is a great company..all good stuff

I may even recomend a 238 stick...but you will want more turbo..and your tranny will definately not like you.....at all.
with a valvebody and pi stallion tc maybe.... oem it will go on strike in 6 months.

Re: want your opinions

Stick is a term for injectors, and listen up on tranny advice. I just spent $5k on a new bts tranny

Re: want your opinions

Re: want your opinions

more 7.3 'bonics but solid recomendations......lol
so what you really need is a reg return, double pumps, poon the tank and some big oil.

translates to
look at a regulated return fuel system.
hutch and harpoon mods for the fuel tank.
dual oem fuel pumps if going over 200 injectors,
and have a look at a t500, adrenaline or similar high pressure oil pump (hpop)

Re: want your opinions

ok so i emailed dave @ swamps. he claims the 175 injectors will drop the hp and make tranny more reliable.....but says as long as i behave myself the 200s will be a better choice."more power!!!!" im not toooo hard on equipment buuuutttt.... i cant afford this 5g for a new tranny. do i jus settle on the 175s?
