Hold on to your wallet, its going to be a wild ride.

Watch for pulsing idle, bad injector pressure regulator will cause that.

Leaking T-case, thats caused by pump rub- easily fixed by Merchant Automotives repair kit.

Fuel in the engine oil, discoverable by a rise in oil level- caused by bad injectors.

Other than those, you should be good. If it doesnt already have an exhaust, choose one of your liking and get rid of the cat and muffler. State laws and inspections pending!

With a stock trans, keep your HP below 100HP added or you take a chance of limping the trans, and thats bad.

Hope this helps,
Tony

I say get some gauges and watch 'em for awhile before you do any upgrades. Stay on the garage, there is a TON of info floating around here.
