get the pulse for the adrenaline and you will only need a fuel pressure gauge. But what about your tranny? What about your lift pump?

Personal experience....FASS fuel pump should be #1 on the list! then you can save your injection pump & don't have to buy the fuel pressure gauge. I would also say Pyrometer (exhaust temp) gauge is a must, I didn't do anything extremely outrageous to my truck but towing I could get it overheated quick so having that saved that truck in the long run.

Just my $.02

the stock lift pump starves the IP and kills it...your tranny might be ok, but it wont last too long after you mod it...Torque Converter and Valve Body at the least...

You really don't need the 4" exhaust unless your looking at doing some more serious upgrades like larger injectors. But defiantly get a better lift pump, and if your not going to do more upgrades, I'd just cut the muffler out, and you'll get enough flow with the stock exhaust. I figure why spend the money if you don't have to.

How about tranny too??? If you got a Auto you need to beef it up before you break something too. (Auto).

i'd still do the fass pump first...but if its an auto tranny deff look at an ATS (from what i've heard...) I had a 6speed manual so i didn't do anything to the tranny untill the fly-wheel warped
