Best Power-adder w/o VP44 wire tap

Recommended Posts

Lets hear your ideas? Injectors (RV275), Edge Ez, Powerpuck, Smarty, Quad, Etc...Just looking for a little extra for towing. I will be adding a 4in exhaust before end of year.

Well if your not wanting to tap the wire... I would say go for injectors and a Smarty. If you really want to kick in high geear then look for a Hotrod VP44 and go for 75 HP injectors... Then you'll make some serious power without tapping... But if you deside to come back to tap the wire I would suggest you use a Stealth Plate. It a perfect add on that basically uses a needle set screw then pierces the plastic under the lid of the VP44 and gets a water proof tap.

Some bigger injectors and either a Smarty or an Edge Comp. The setup on my truck makes enough power to easily slip the stock clutch. You should add a South Bend clutch to your list. Eventually I will install one in mine. For now, I only have about 64,000 miles on my truck and I am NOT gonna replace a perfectly good clutch just yet. I just have to be real easy on the power when pulling a load or carrying any amount of weight. Running empty, the clutch holds good.

with the HO you will not see a full 65HP out of an EZ or similar, plan on about 40-50HP as the HO will respond better to injectors. If you have 150K+ on your injectors I would do them, if not a chip. Lots of people have them laying around like me from a previous upgrade. You can pick them up all day long for $200.plan on slipping your clutch at about 100-140HP over stock. MPG will be same as stock for 100HP inj and under, and at 150HP you should lose about 0.5mpg

I had 75hp injectors for a little while, but I took them out trying to find out why my truck had the rump rump syndrome, one year later still there. I give up, I just drive it now days.

If for towing, get a nice header to peel heat quicker. Adding fuel will just heat things up in a jiffy... Also, think about at minimum a Raptor if you are running the stock lift pump. Anything over stock will kill it. After this, throw some 75 - 100hp sticks in there and if budget allows, look at a Smarty or Edge.... My next turner will be the Smarty so I can get the high idle set up.....
