Red face Recomendations

I'm pretty new to the diesel world. Just bought my truck in November. I'm also 21 and in school and working. I wanted some ideas for power additions to my truck. I recently bought an edge juice/the a2 and installed it. What else do i need to upgrade? I'd like to put a new clutch in it asap but need the funds to do that. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

02' LWB, Ext. Cab, 5" stacks, edge juice/a2, 6spd manual, k&n air filter

Get the clutch before you start playing with other things. You'd hate it if you added injectors and then smoked your clutch cause that would happen. What are you going to be using the truck for, and how much are you willing/wanting to spend on it? That will ultimately determine what you end up doing to it.

I would highly recommend getting a better lift pump in it too. I would make that a priority.

Yeah I figured a new clutch was soon to come. I'm willing to spend whatever I can to beef it up. It is my daily truck but I also want to have fun with it. Have a buddy with a 99' f250 so we're always lookin at ways to fix up our trucks. Thanks for the advice. Also if you know of any cheap and useful tricks that help fuel mileage i'm very interested!

Stay out of the boost. And turn your edge box down is about the only way to keep your fuel mileage down. :

I usually get 16-18mpg and i have a very heavy foot.

Get rid of the K&N and get a BHAF.

I ran a K&N for a while, but it let too much fine dirt through. Even with extra oil.

I hope it wasn't enough extra to cause damage. But yes, the K&N isn't the best way to go. As far as milage, it does really depend on how you drive it. If you get a set of good injectors, and just drive normal with them, you should see a slight increase.
