Alright I am thinking about getting a 7.3 and I would like to get some more power out of it this what I am thinking. this will be used for towing under 13k at the most and plowing.

-DP tuner with custom tunes
-Flo-Pro T409 turbo back W/ muffler delete
-AFE stage 2 pro dry7 cold air intake
-Air Dog 100
-Fuel mods that Powerstokehelp shows
-Garrett GTP38R with batmowheel upgrade (if thats possible)
-Superchips dpi (maybe)
-The waste gate and boost fooler set at 40 PSI
-Leveling kit and some 33's

Will the stock head bolts and tranny handle these mods or will I need to upgrade some parts like the shafts, flex plate and torque convertor.

Yes the stock trans will handle it but its a goo idea to add a 6.0 trans cooler, modded valve body and a good triple disk TC.

BTW my other answers are in red.

Thanks bud
I am thinking about slapping some swamps 175/30% with a adreniline hpop later on if I can afford it.
Will I need head studs and a bult tranny then
with the air dog are they just a waste of money becasue they have no benefit.

Re: Newbie

No you want need to do headstuds or a built trans..... And the airdog is a waste of money, do a regulated return and be done.

Also before buying another HPOP hook a scanner to your truck first and watch live data of the hpo psi and duty cycle.

Re: Newbie

Right now I am just trying to gather technical info I do not have a truck yet just trying to figure out cost and if its worth it. one truck is a 2003 and has them the other is a 2002 and I am not sure it was hard to read the serial number on the block assuming from the production date it does not from my research. I like to have all the info in hand before I spend the money on a new truck.
