Default 2000 24v turbo/injector suggestions

Looking to turn up the power a bit. Just got the quadzilla adrenaline haven't installed it yet but it should as some power.

2000 24v
Edge ez (current)
New vp44 blue chip diesel
New lift pump 155gph white performance
Diesel auto power 35% injectors
HX 35

All hooked up to a NV5600 with a single disk Valiar.

Considering a bigger turbo and bigger injectors, dual disc clutch and an exhaust to go with the quadzilla. Let me know what you guys think? What set ups have worked for you?

Truck doesn't pull a ton of weight. Lots of high way driving on economy setting but I like to have the power when I want it.

Thanks

How much power are you looking for. There are many different ways to approach. For about 500 hp you can use 7x0.010 injectors, a 62 or 63/68/14 turbo. Clutch I would go with either valair or southbend dual disc. For best mileage I would run the quad turned all the way up and be easy on the pedal.

If you dont tow much and your truck is more of a toy go to a 74mm turbine in an s300 frame. Way more punch when she gets going.

That's going to be a very laggy turbo.

if you have a BRAND NEW VP44 still under warranty, DON'T tap the pump wire. It'll void your warranty. I would highly recommend playing with the tuning WITHOUT tapping first. That will give you a good bump in power! Im not a expert in the tuning department, however im sure there are many here who can help you. Just some friendly advise.

YOU'RE crazy, do what you want. But in total parts cost for me DD and towable work horse(4.5k). All i need is a 62/65/14, quadzilla, south bend, 150's, DTT, and gauges. Already have : ARP, 5", bhaf, ddrp, new tranny and clutch, whatever else im forgetting
