Fuel plate, Injectors, 4K GSK, Boost elbow, 60 psi valve springs, AFC mods, DV's (talk to Mrector), BHAF, and think about going to a 4" exhaust. But first build up your tranny. Possibly go to a bigger turbo, but see how far you get with these first. And if you do go to a bigger turbo, you need O-rings, Marine headgaskets, and studs.

I don't know whats up with the time you ran, what elevation are you at? Using the calculators on the site it says 300hp should put you in the 15's

That means a trans that will hold, standard intake/exhaust, and then all the other free mods and maybe a GSK should be enough. If you need more add a turbo and injectors.

Im not sure about the elevation but I dont think its very high. I already have 4 inch straight piped. My reaction times were absolutely horrible were talking .7 the whole night. Havnt raced in a long time. Plus I think I need to turn overdrive off. It bogs down hard when it kicks in. Im looking at the 4 gsk and 60# springs but Im honestly scared to do it myself. Ive screwed up the simplest things somehow. Im gonna have a shop do it. I have a BHAF and outerwear ready to go but I have to get the metal to do the heat shield.

What I meant in my first post was start doing those and stop when you get in the times you want.

If you can change oil then you can do valve springs. Follow these directions, it's on a 93 but it's the same head.>>>>http://www.dieseltruckresource.com/d...d.php?t=171288 At $75 per shop hour I can change alot of stuff!
