umm with what u have listed in your sig you should already be there. maybe whats holding you back is that EDGE stuff your running, a setup like that needs custom tuning, atleast an over the phone tune from one of the popular 7.3L program vendors.

It looks like you have spent the money to get there. So you can tell your friend, from first hand experience that it is not cheap at all to get 500 hp.

Luke made 550 on a set of Hybrids, stock HPOP and a Modded H2E from Beans Diesel and Tony's tunes. You would need a fuel system to support the injectors also.

From the sounds of it the bottom end was replaced soon after due to mechanical failures :shrug:


BTW, I thought you were asking a while back how much power your setup would make due to you not having access to a dyno. So how do you know you are over 500? :poke:

Where is there a dyno in New York around Albany that can handle a diesel. Just wondering if anyone has a clue.

You need to find a dyno. Also if that guy with an 02 is running stock rods (PMR's) theres no way he's even close to 450. You have enough fuel and air for well over 500 (probably enough for over 600), but with the edge stuff id bet your not over 500. Get ahold of Tony Wildman and he'll get you the tuning you need.

but not all of them handle a diesel. I was looking into one near my home town and it turns out they only have a 4wd chassis dyno for subarus because they tune subarus.

Yea Im not doubting his mods just the Edge setup. With good tuning he would be knocking it down.

Back when I was into the whole drag scene it amazed me how many HP numbers were thrown around with no actual clue. It was funny how my little 300hp could hang with all the *4-500hp* stuff.

I wouldnt push much past 500, that seems to be the limit of forged rods.
