Very Hard? As in how, expensive?
Set of Mini Me's, Turbo, and fuel system. You're there. Actually 450+ if not 500. :shrug:

OK let me explaine... Without pulling parts off... I think what this newbie is thinking is his intake gave him 50hp, exhaust gave him 40hp, Superchip tuner gave him 120hp... You of all people know what I am talking about.


BTW, I guaranty with what you posted above you would not be above 425-430 TOPS... AND NO WAY ON A PMR Motor... You would have to get very agressave to get to that point in tuneing...

Not saying he doesn't have the HP but the torque seems way low for a 7.3 with that HP number.

Dzacc made 460 on a PMR motor.

I agree that his tq sounds a bit low as well.

360HP/665TQ and not even close to 23 MPG. You aren't going off what the overhead console says are you? I also agree that the torque looks low(or the HP is high).
