What to do next?

Hey all, So what is everyone doing for mods after the tuner, exhaust, intake? I was thinking of new torque converter, tranny TCM first but all this latest talk of injectors, plugs etc is a creating a little unease in the ole led foot! So maybe studs, injector system first????

Thanks.

All the first things you said are good but with the tranny make sure you do not get the upgraded selenoid. and so are studs. If you're going to do injectors you need to do a fuel system to support them, which isn't out yet other than a modded hpfp. IMO it'd be better to wait on that stuff and save yourself some money when a full fuel system comes out and then do fuel, injectors, and turbos.

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

Awesome, So anyone know who does head studs in Alberta at a decent shop rate ($200/hr up here)? What kind of waste-gate is everyone running?
