grind your plate to a #100 or #0, everything in my signature was free... and it rolled 341,8hp on the dyno !

the exhaust was there when i got it, so i guess you'll be near to equal to me, except mine came with a 230 pump since it's a EURO Cummins

is it a Manual or Auto ?

let's not forget, if you like a whistle from your Turbo... remove the silencer ring and baffle between your fender and airbox

i had a 160 pump on my truck when i first put the 12v, i laid down 150hp and put a 0 plate in, it laid down 280hp for nothing. but ur stock auto wont hold 280hp, with out a good TC (torue converter)

another free mod u can do would be a TC lock up switch.

biged681985's Sig:99 dodge = broken, and waiting to be under the knife
98 dodge = let out in the pasture to die
06 ford = waiting to be fixed, or have a 12v transplant
05 vw Passat tdi. running strong
00 dodge = 330k ready to see what it has in her
black sheep = details coming soon

First check your KDP and do it if it's not done, Won't make any more power but it may save you from major engine damage

stock juiced up tranny and 600 hp TC is the way to go i just took my fuel plate out tonight and turned my star wheel way up and there is already a difference

but your first two things should be tranny and tc and go from there
