700rwhp

I am in the process of building up my 2006 Duramax slowly but surely. My goal is to be able to have plenty of power when I need it but not so much to the point where I am constantly replacing parts on my engine. Where do u think that zone would be? I would ideally like 700hp at my wheels. I am buying a new cp3 tomorrow to start running dual cp3ís. I have a 150gph lift pump, ARP head studs, 4" Str8 Pipe Exhaust Turbo Back, 3" exhaust downpipe, EFI Live, AFE Cold Air Intake, BD Deisel 150GPH Lift Pump, orsion Keys, PowerStop high performance brakes & rotors, PCV delete plug, Crankcase Breather Kit, EGR Delete kit, Batmowheel Billet turbo wheel, Turbo cooldown timer, Turbo blowoff valve, Mean Green HD starter, Mean Green HD 200amp alternator, Auxiliary Fuelbox [+57gal]
**Transmission Mods**
Auxiliary tranny cooler w/ fan, Upgraded tranny cooler lines, Mag Hytech Deep Tranny Pan, TransGo Jr performance shift kit.

Anticipating- s475 twin turbo kit, Mahle pistons and rings, Carrillo pro-h rods, ARP main studs, and 100 to 200% over injectors not sure on those just yet.

Concerns-
Is there anything I am forgetting to redo or beef up before I build my lbz up to 700-750rwhp cuz thatís gonna be over 900 at the flex plate. Crank?? Main Bearings? Anything else? I donít want this engine blowing up on me anytime soon cuz I plan on dropping it in my 69 Chevelle here in at least 5 years.

Any other thoughts, ideas, or advice is much obliged !

are those actually twins or compound? my suggestion is to get HEADERS, log manifolds flow like ****, they will limit your power, rpm and pose a risk for meltdown

My first thought and concern is for the (I am guessing here) stock transmission with a deep pan, fan, and TGJr kit.

my thought is that 700 real RWHP will cause considerable displeasure to the unit and it will not live long especially with a stock converter

I would budget some money to beef it up and or buy a built one rated for that much power

charge pipes and intercooler are crucial


for custom turbo setup you will need to build, it is where I would start
