ready to spend some money

Ok guys, i know i have talked about this crap before but i am ready to do this now so tell me what you think. My cummin is my daily driver but i want it to be able to hold it's own, right now all i have is exhaust, intake and turned up pump, what i want to know is are POD injectors the best to get??? Should i do a fuel pin?? where can i get a 4k or 4200 rpm GSK because i have a 3 speed and need to be able to run it down the 1/4? what do i need to do for valve springs and where can i get them?? what is the best cheep rout to go on a turbo?? and does anyone make anything to beef up my 3 speed?? i am told it is stronger than the 4 speed auto's is that true?

sorry for all the ?'s

I would go with POD's, unless you want to spend a lot more money and gain a little more power by going with some custom EDM's. With the POD's you are going to need the injector adapter tips which you can also get from Piers. I would just grind your stock fuel pin with the direction of others. If you plan on high RPM than you will want to get a set of 12 60lb. valve springs, I got mine from Piers for $110. For the governor spring, you can get it through any Bosch dealer but the 4200 will have to come straight from Bosch in Germany, here is the part # 1 464 650 354. I would call up HTT for your turbo needs, the best cheap route would be to do there stage 3 on your stocker, somewhere around $200 and it uses the 60mm HX40 compressor wheel combined with the center section, exhaust wheel, and housing from your h1c.

Yes I am still running the bone stock 3 speed, trans upgrades were next on the list before it melted a piston. The truck was owned by my brother and was driven every day and raced every other weekend, until he cooked it. I now own it and I just bought another set of pistons and im gonna rebuild the motor. Im still not sure where im heading with the truck so I cant tell you what im going to do to the tranny yet, probably replace it with a fully built OD tranny if I go all out, if not it will more than likely just get a valve body and converter.

The tires are here. They are the 31 x 13.5 - 15. Part # 522-17790QTP

Rims are here. 15x10.

Yes, the rims will fit.

The stiffer valve springs will allow you to run higher RPM without worry of the valves floating. You can get a spring compressor and change the springs out without pulling the head. Your HG "should" be OK, but head studs are a GOOD idea. Just be careful with your timing, the more timing the harder on the HG.

I dont have a positive answer yet on my motor. Could have been an injector popping to early. Could also have been from detonation from a lot of methanol and a lot of timing. Just not sure yet.

I believe that they say it will only work on the intercooled trucks is because they have a cast elbow that attatches to the compressor outlet which hooks up to the tube that goes to the intercooler. The compressor housing that they supply you with has a flange on it with a lip that a v-band style clamp goes around to attach the cast elbow. All I did was grind off the 1/4" tall lip that goes around the compressor housing outlet in order to use a silicone hose to attach it to my intake horn.
