Upgrading injectors and what else?

So I’ve got a 2000 7.3 f250 6 speed and I’m looking at a set of 238/100 maybe 200% full force injectors to do sometime in the next few months. Is there anything else I should upgrade while I’m in there? I’ll probably do valve springs at the same time. But what about pushrods? Clutch? I’ve got a SB 400 hp in there now, but do I need any other supporting upgrades? Thanks for any advice!

You need a lot of upgrades.

Gauges, intake, exhaust then...

Turbo, better clutch, head studs, fuel system (hutch mod, better pump, better fuel feed to the heads)
Valve springs aren’t a bad idea
And a chip with email capability so you don’t have to sent it in for Re-burns
Php hydra is 325. + custom tunes
The others email updatedable chips are over twice the price

Judging by your current mods your better off with 160/30’s
They work well with stock engine components.

I would still recommend a turbo upgrade though.

99.5 f250 7.3 4x4- 277k FF 160/30, Hydra w/SDK Tunes, S&B CAI, 4" Exhaust, Van turbo w/Riffraff Billet wheel, Autometer Gauges, Built Trans, Trucool Max, 08 Tow Mirrors.


Dads-2000 f250 7.3 4x4- 118k K&N Intake w/Amsoil Filter, 4" Exhaust, Autometer Gauges, Superchip 1705 (Tow Safe), BD Billet Wheel, TruCool Max, 08 Tow Mirrors.

Alright I’ll try to cover everything. I’ve got afe intake, van turbo (which I’ll probably upgrade to a kc366 in the next 6 months or so), turbo back 4” straight pipe, arp head studs, can’t say about the hutch mod. Most of these were done before I got the truck and I’ve never dropped the tank. I’m sure there’s a couple things I’m forgetting. Oh, I was told it has the php chip but the tunes sound more like a typical ts (stock, hi idle, 50,75, 100, 140).

Have you checked for ARP studs or is that what they told you?

I would go T4 unless you already have bellowed up pipes, ebpv delete pedestal and outlet.

Because the kc turbo plus quality garret parts is going to run you 2k!

A Bw s366 with a T4 kit will run like 2200.

And it will Handle more abuse, cheap to rebuild compared to the KC, and drop egts several hundred degrees compared to the KC

Honestly 160/30’s will work well with everything you have currently and make a solid 400hp.

Ask yourself if the extra 4-5k is worth it for 100 more horsepower

I currently have the van turbo with billet wheel and 160/30’s. It is a very good combo

I’m not really certain about what turbo I’m getting yet, but the KC 366 is about $1,400. I’m thinking about going with the stage 2 180/100. But with those, would I need to upgrade my stock hpop? I’m looking for a little bigger than 160/30.

Stage 2 a codes aren’t very good.

You will need a adrenaline 20* pump to even somewhat keep up.

180/100’s only make 25-30hp more than 160/30’s

160/30’s make a solid 400hp with all the support mods (hpop/turbo)

You could do a 200/30 hybrid as well. They use less oil
