what to do, what to do

not sure what to do next i got a egr delete, head studs, sct, afe intake. only have a 3" exhaust since thats the biggest pipe they had. WILL be goin to a 4" this spring. looking to get a good set of gauges at the diesel extravaganza this weekend. so what should my next mod or next couple mods be? may be puttin it on the dyno this weekend any guesses on hp numbers? the truck has 166,000 miles on it would it be worth it to really put alot of money in it since it been around the block a few times cause i dont want to put a ton of money in it just for it to fall apart

usually what people do next is turbo/injectors, dont know if you want to go that route but if you do, i hear the new powermax turbo and 190cc injectors will get you around 550hp and run nice.

When you get the gauges, be sure to get a fuel pressure gauge. When the fuel pressure drops below 45 psi, you run a risk of losing injectors. Before you even think about going with bigger injectors or turbo, it would be a good idea to upgrade the fuel delivery system.

You also want to be able to monitor your ECT and EOT so you will know if your oil cooler is clogging up. Put a coolant filter on it.
