I have a 92 w350 with a getrag, and it is basically stock. I have had the injector pump rebuilt, and "turned up 10%" by the shop that built it. I also had the injectors built. Other than this the truck is virtually stock, I was curious as to what some of you guys ideas were for what you would do from here. I want to keep the truck as a daily driver/ farm, while still using the truck for a good bit of travel so it will need to be set up for pulling still. I am not going to be going straight to changing things, but just trying to get some ideas. Thanks for the help.

For free you can turn that +10% pump into a +50% pump.

However, a pyrometer will be required to make sure you don't melt your engine.

I have a pyrometer, but that is the only thing I have other than factory guages. How difficult is it to turn the pump up, also what about
EGTs and engine temps. I have seen them get pretty warm in the summer here in mississippi with a load, any suggestions about how to help with that.

Theres a sticky at top of the page tells you how, its easy. And 1250 degrees is considered to be the max, if your egt probe is pre turbo.
