05 dmax upgrades...

got an 05 and its time to add a tuner, i ve decided either predator or ppe and i was curios if a lifter pump is a good low level upgrade. i have a cai already but am umsure if a lifter pump is worth while on a mildly tuned truck. i also plan on an exhaust in the future.

I have been running PPE on the 90 setting for two yrs. Have been fine so far. I have heard that some guys report better mileage w/some systems. (Fass or AirDog)

Lift pump can only help. Any tuner though is only gonna be good for 80hp or less unless you wanna kill the tranny faster.

At this point it seems like a lift pump would be like tacking on a more advanced mod than the truck is really set up for. I'd finish freeing up airflow from start to finish first. Downpipe-back exhaust and a Bladerunner Turbo Inlet. That'll free up a little more pony and spool up somewhat quicker too.
