What should I do next?

I recently installed a powermaxx, fuel spring upgrade, banjo's, new oil cooler, custom tunes, and my 5" exhaust. I was just wondering what everyone thought I should do next. I am in high school so budget it kinda tight but I make decent money and truck payments aren't much.

Let me see what everyone thinks!

I'm at your same point in upgrades. I did add a new AFE CA intake. Im looking at FICM flash, CFM largemouth, upgraded intercooler, CCV mod, maybe airdog2 and batmowheel, and then injectors, but the injectors are wayyy last on the list because of cost. Theres only so much you can do before you can pull the motor and make a monster but there's no point in my opinion for the street.

Not really worried about being fast for cheap.

Mild tune probably I figure you want to replace that its one less thing to fail plus some added performance

I'd say either an Airdog or and 58v FICM. I want to do the 58v FICM myself but I'm gonna wait til it starts to go before I replace it.
