what to do with late '99

well i might be buying a late 99 six speed and was wondering what you guys think i should do as far as mods, it already has gauges intake and exhaust. ill do a 550hp single disc clutch, 6.0 intercooler, studs, and ill send my rosewood stage 1's back to be built into 3's i want atleast 450+ hp to start with any maybe stop at 500. i want it to be reliable as a daily driver and all so question is what turbo would be best as far as quick spool/low egts and would an adernalin/over be enough oil or will i need dual termie's? what about fuel, how far is the stock eletric fuel good for? please fill in for anything else in missing

Re: what to do with late '99

php chip
adrenaline
no idea on manual clutches-but I hear southbends are good
hybird injectors
you will also need a turbo to hit 450..since it is a late model a gt38r
h2e/modded h2e is also a great choice but lot more money.
(not so much $ vs convertinga gt38r for an early 99 like mine)
fuel mods would help -itp or similar pickup-prepump filter ,larger lines,
reg return-possibly a walbro pump
6.0 ic will help a lil but not much
I also like powerslot brakes and hawk pads.

some other minor tweaks may be nice if you have the cash.
coolant filter, fluid damper, etc..

imho at 450 and a gt38r studs are not 100%...but nice to have

oh most important if it is a 99, and the cupholder has little lame rubber fingers....swap it for a newer style
the only thing that will do is sling flaming hot cups of coffee everywhere,and anywhere...cans are somewhat ok
but forget anything in a cup.

Early 99 f350 4x4 crew cab, auto. pmt2 pcm
2001 cup holder ,T500, MAX AC ASSIST AC mod, Diy Twin tymar, TS chip, Powerslots & Hawk pads, ford AIC, ..... with big fat want to list.

Then get a good clutch. I have a SB single disc right now and it wont hold. Next one I get will be a Valair Dual Disc
