air filter wont give you any power, for a filter Id do the 6637 filter from napa, its cheap and flows real well. If you want real power then youll want intake, exhaust, custom tuned chip and then you can go up from there

Ditch the K&N, they are bad for turbo diesel engines, they can dust em.

Also I would ditch that hypermax chip and get some custom tuning, that hypermax is not doin much at all for you right now

The ATS housing just helps with spool up

They dont make body lifts cuase the arent a good idea to do on diesels

For a good injector upgrade check out this site DIY-Injectors.com he has done injectors for me twice for a great price and service

no problem

I love my stage 2 injectors. I had stage 1s and then I had an issue and pulled them out again and sent them in and got 100% nozzles put on to make them 2s and just going from the stage 1s to 2s made a HUGE difference. And I am very happy with my swamps tunes, I had wildman tunes before and honestly I am much happier with these.

With 2s though you will want at least a 17* HPOP

Now Im just looking forward to getting my BTS trans in my truck in the next couple of months and the mounting kit for the modded H2E sitting in my room so I can finally break 400 at the wheels

You will need a TS, Tony Wildman or DP Tuner Chip to turn the fuel up on your Powerstroke's. HPOP stands for High Pressure Oil Pump.

17*(degree) is the gear that turns the HPOP and with the OBS its a 15* gear.

You can get swamps tunes from Swamp's Diesel Performance and HPOP is high pressure oil pump like said above. Also there is no way to turn up fuel on a powerstroke like you can on a 12 valve

Yeah it will hopefully hit the 400 mark soon, I have the fuel just need to get the turbo in, Ive never ran it at the track, I will once I get my BTS trans in the next month or two
