My 550hp + 7.3 build ideas

This is my mod list, I wanna know what you guys would do different, and what else you would do to the motor when it's apart (beatings/rings/ect.)
Also I know the 38r is alittle small but it can be used and i already have it, i wanna stay under $12,000 and my truck will be a daily driver I pull 8 ton on a 5th wheel about once a month and I wanna pull at the local fairs for fun (ill add traction bars, drive shaft loops and bump stops later)

Any help would be great

I was gona run a 1.15 until I seen php dyno test for the 38r ww2 (truck had the same mods as im talking about and made 572hp) and according to bill a 1.15 will make u lose hp and it doesn't really help so I'm not gona spend the money besides if I was gona upgrade the 38r more then just a wheel I would get a different turbo

3rd paragraph down he talks about the 1.15 having no benefit and losing a little power with it

Re: My 550hp + 7.3 build ideas

The only reason I going with the 250/200 is so I have alittle growing room in the future, if I make 575hp with this ill be very happy

And I'm hoping to get some one some where to live tune it
