Where did you get a compressor map from Procharger?
They guard those things like crazy. I have friends sponsored by them that can't get the map on the F1X's they run in radial classes.

Sorry. I'm a jackass and confused myself with the Vortech back when I was talking to ripp. That kit blower should be upgraded from the get-go.

Look int the ATS Diesel Copilot for better trans control. It works with converter lock-up, and clutchpack lock-up programs.

Only problem I can see you really having is with the Intake Manifold. It's not a big issue, but I believe it was RamTex who did that before and you have to machine the top of the motor because the throttle body hits something on the top of the block. Other than I say lets see this build lol Have you thought about just doing a 6.1 swap. I know it's not a 6.4 but considering there are companies running 800+ HP set ups in them I think you'll find performance isn't a huge issue. The VVT in the newer 5.7L and 6.4L restrict the kind of cams we can run as well.

If you could post a pic of the grind work and how everything looks mounted up that would be awesome.

You also need the 6.1 fuel rails and crossover.
Here is my t/b mounted. The grind work is on the bottom but I still have my fastman tb sitting on the shelf which I also ground in case I wanted to use it.
