Next best upgrade?

ok, i already got propane...but if a guy was startin fresh and had the 3 main goodies (intake, exhaust, and sct) what would the Best all around next upgrade be?

Injection-
Propane: better mpg, more power when needed, easy to get filled
Nos: Mo power, cooler egts
Water: nah

Fuel-
small (165-190) injecters
fuel system, air dog, fass, etc.

Turbo-
aftermarket turbo
bigger turbo wheel and housing

Now i know a mixture of all things would be peak along with a new tc and tranny...but im wondering about just adding one thing above the three that would be the most power extra without Having to go with a tc and tranny and still be able to be one of the fastest trucks in town. Im guessing either nos or injectors would be the best for the money. but injectors kill fuel mpg ive been told and raise egts. Im thinking of maybe adding a fuel system and stopping there but i dont know if i would get any benefit without sticks, turbo, etc.

A transmission build would help your current tuner put more of your power to the ground. At least safely...

I would go with some stage 1 injectors and a Turbo wheel, intercooler fuildamper and a a Stage 1 fuel system. Should get you past the 500 hp mark.

our stage 2 injectors and stage one fuel system.
500rwhp and very drivable on the stock turbo
with propor tuning your trans will last a good wile if you don't beat it to bad.

Fluidampner definitely would be my first choice.

this is all assuming i didnt already have pane too, correct? i was thinking about selling my propane kit possible and putting the $$ toward probably some 190 injectors, but got told by a few that mpg dropped a lot! and for as much traveling as i do, i need to be "able" to get better mpg with upgrades, not lose em! so about how much does the mpg go down doing sticks?? and about how much do the egts go up? those are my main 2 concerns. and im guessing these will add around 75 horse?........lastly, would i make ANY benefit at all just doing a fuel pump with the setup i have now such as fass or airdog or other venders that have them on here? Thanks for the replys too! btw...would love to put on a TC and tranny, sticks, turbo, etc. but for a guy on a budget, just want to know the best all around power adder and to keep what i got or change out for something better ?!?

all a fuel system with stock injectors will do is maybe help throtal restonse just a lil. I don't know who you were talking to but with good tuning and as long as your not in it all the time you should get deacent milage. Best my truck ever did stock was around 14.5, then with just tuning i was ble to hit 16 a time or 2. Then with my stage 4 injectors i could pull 15mpg on the highway so not much of a drop at all.
and your interested in stage 2's so there should be even less of a drop

we are assuming you dont have pane. milage does not suffer much and 190's are about 150+ hp injector when you have the prper supporting mods. Adding a fuel system to stock injectors will not increase the amount fuel injected just help with pressure spikes and drops. Give us a call for pricing one injectors and turbo for your truck we have a reasonable stage 1 package.
