400-450hp: 180cc to 205cc injectors with 80 percent or 100 percent larger nozzles
Custom tuning via TS Performance six-position chip or Hydra chip
Drop in turbo (Dominator 66 on ’94.5-‘97, GTP38R on ’99-‘03) or T4 mount
Electric fuel system (required on ’94.5-’97 trucks, Walbro drop-in pump on ’99-’03 trucks)
Regulated return fuel system
Valve body and triple disc torque converter
A couple things I would like to note about your list. Now this is just me, others will have their input as well, im sure.
180-205cc injectors I think are a waste, after talking with dozens of people with them, and 160cc inj, and 238cc inj, including tuners, and injector manufactures, it seems that if you arent going with a mild "bump" (ie the 160cc injector), then you need to just step up to a 238c/80% combo. Hundreds, if not thousands of people have done this, and still tow well with a good turbo setup. Again, just my opinion. I plan on going to a 238cc or 250cc and still tow my 13,000lbs trailer.
Hydra chip hands down. Theyre not that different in price, and you can load tunes yourself instead of shipping them to someone to do it for you. Not to mention the 15 positions instead of 6.
The drop in turbo has been talked about lately, see Turbo Options
thread and we eventually came to the conclusion that if you already have everything that comes in a T4 kit (ie, intercooler piping, bellowed up pipes etc) then to go with a KC drop in turbo. the D66 and 38R are old news now and they've been problematic in the past (ie, smokey, hard to get lit)
Everything else you have is good. A homebrew E-Fuel kit can be relatively cheap, and with a stock 99-03 pump, can support quite a bit of power with some very good reliability. See My E-fuel build
thread and how I did mine.
