What do I need to have 650 RWHP??

Well I just bought a 2006 Silverado Crew Cab 6inch lift. Going to pick it up next week... It has Air intake, Exhaust , superchips tuner... What do I need besides Trans, Converter to get 650 reliable wheel hp as this is going to be a daily driver and driven in below 0 temps in the winter... I obviously want the power for some summertime fun....Any input would be appreciated.....

Upgraded internals...Rod, pistons, crankshaft, heads, studs, turbo...the list goes on. The problem is the "Reliable 650 RWHP" Why not settle for 500HP and save some $$$ and a lot of grief?? This is just my opinion and I don't want to discourage anyone from building their truck.

That's what I am doing. Should be just over 500RWHP. I am at Merchants now getting tranny, FASS, guages, sleeves, cognitos, and traction bars. To make it up over that you are going to need to open the motor, that's not a problem if you want to spend the $$$

Thanks for all the input... I think 550 rwhp will do. I dont want to tear down the motor....When I want to go real fast I just get on my GSXR 1000 anyways. Its just funny to see peoples mouths drop when a big truck pulls away from them... I will be giving Eric a call.. Thanks Again...:Thumbup:
