Default To P-Pump or not to P-Pump?...

So, I knew to the forums, what up!!, but I ha e read tons of threads on here and figured why not join!? I have recently sold a truck that I bought new last year because I now have a company truck and I could not understand why I was paying $700 a month for a truck I hardly ever drive. So, with that being said, I am looking to build a 24v engine. I have all the tools and equipment needed to rebuild an engine and have a good friend that owns a machine shop. I have never really messed with 24v engines a lot. I hap replaced a couple VP44's but out factory ones back on and replaced a clutch on one. I had 2 03's Dodges and then an 06 throughout the years. I know the 98.5-02 trucks you can chip, program, put in big stixs, and do all kids of stuff. BUT, I have been reading up on P-Pumping it. A good friend of mine said if you get the right pump, like the SO pump, I would be able to get more power out of it than if I had it chipped, programmed, and all that. Not that I'm doubting him, I am just wondering if anyone has done this and what kind of luck they have had with it. I am wanting 7-800hp rwhp. I have however long it takes to build this, so I'm not pressed for time and I'm going to save to buy the parts I want. So if I P-Pumped it, what else would have to be added to get the 7-800hp? Engine wise? Thanks fellas!

As you now know I'm in the process.. I've had a respectable 24v for a while.. I like it the way it is but I found a smoking deal on a kit..if you can afford it. P pump it and compound turbo it.. that's what I'm working towards..

I haven't put much thought to doing twins yet. It is a good idea. I knew a couple guys that had twins. They continually had head gasket issues. The 100 hp per each cylinder he had prolly didn't help eaither but he had entirely to much time and money... I have neither of those . But I'm looking at getting an engine tranny and engine harness. I don't really need the truck yet. I have to get some stuff paid down then I can start dumping money into it.

Its best if you start a new thread. Just to keep everything clear.

That being said, it is a pricey process to p pump a common rail.

Start a a new thread and Iíll point you in the right direction.
