Talking Time for some upgrades!!!!!

Well i finally got my finances together and believe I have the funds that I need to finish the setup on my truck. I already have 238/100 from a sweet deal around christmas just need all the rest. Here is the plan:

Arp head studs
pushrods
910 valve springs
Complete custom fuel sys. (will start another thread on this)
S471/83
Carsons mounting kit
Gen3

Let me know what you think. I will be collecting the parts over next few weeks with the intent of pullin the cab and doing everything in one weekend.

Re: Time for some upgrades!!!!!

Is this on the 03'? Did you swap in Forged Rods already?

Will you still be able to tow heavy with that turbo?

BTW, Im super jealous....

On Edit: You the guy that swapped motors between your 2000 model and your 2003?

Swapped motors between my 2 trucks and I am not worried bout towin heavy as that is what the 450 is for. Will prob try it though and see how she does although not expecting it to be great.

The 910 spring is great for stock or mild lift cams if you shim them to get 120-125 lbs on the seat pressure.

Re: Time for some upgrades!!!!!

What kinda improvement powerwise could i see if i step up to a 200% nozzle on my 238's????? Was throwing the idea around of sending jim back my inj for nozzle upgrade while the truck is down for all the other work. I know i will lose in some other areas but truck is only for play now anyway.

Re: Time for some upgrades!!!!!

I would think you would gain more on the top end. You already have a Gen3 so you have the big oil covered that 200% need. Be intersting to here from other that have made a similar change.

Re: Time for some upgrades!!!!!

Ya I searched for any threads on 238/200 but didn't find any mention of anyone runnin them. I am lookin for more power for pullin as bigger inj will not be till winter and nozzles seem a good intermediate.

What do mean 910's are not the greatest lately? That's the valve springs right?

I was thinking of up grading valve springs w/910 ?
