I/E/G of course.
Tranny before big performance mods
Injectors
Tuning
Fuel
Turbo
-6.0 I/C will help
The list could go on and on...

You're about 50-60 miles away from me. If you need help doing stuff you can come on over. I've installed several exhausts/Gauges/Intakes and other performance stuff on other vehicles. My buddy has installed injectors, turbo's and some other valve stuff so we might be able to help out.

HI Derek and welcome to TDG.

For what all you are wanting to do the best thing to do is research, research, research. I can't emphazize this enough because you can easily get caught up in the modding game. You don't need to spend an outragous fortune on what you want to achieve. There are many that have done this and have done it well. Take your time and research it.

I see you are in PA. If you want someone local to lean on about this, give Ladell at East Coast Diesel Perfomance a call. They are a dealers for us and Ladell has a pretty impressive street legal/pulling/racing truck. He will be able to point you in the right direction. Their info can be found on our dealer page. :Thumbup:
