Re: cheapest way to make 50hp

So what does your truck dyno now. You talking crank or RWHP. If you're talking Crank you probably are close to that now. If you're RWHP them I'd say a shift kit and pick your direction and go. BO or hybrids.

Re: cheapest way to make 50hp

If your running a DP Tuner you should be running a shift kit in the first place. They act alot better.

FASS system won't give you any extra hp, unless your stock fuel pump is already dying.

Like others said, you need big oil, injectors, or NOS. There's no other way around it. Your biggest limit right now is the oil pressure, followed closely by your injectors. With a BO setup, you can increase oil pressure enough to squeeze enough extra power out of the stock injectors to reach that 350 hp mark. Or, if you swap in for a set of hybrids single shots, they use the same or less oil and will give you more fuel, enough for 400+ hp. The last option, NOS.... well, everyone knows what laughing gas does

By the way, if you plan to reach 350+ hp, you'd better consider do something about the turbo. It won't like the extra power, and with your current mods it's already being pushed at or beyond it's limits at WOT. You can get by for a while, but eventually it will need some attention if you plan to race or pull.
