What to do next?

I have a 2006 F-250 that has been bulletproofed. Normal things egr delete, studded, even had injectors cleaned and such.

Ok for performance I have 5'' exhaust, edge cts programmer, and bully dog intake. I have a few bucks to spare and I want some more performance. What should I do next? I can go as high as 2k for performance mods.

Please help me

Your best bet would be to tell us what HP goals are you looking for at the wheels (450,500,550,ect).


For 450rwhp, SCT with custom tunes, and FICM tuning. If your looking to reach 500rwhp, add in injectors and better turbo.

I think FICM tuning is the next "big" thing. I hear PHP is doing some pretty cool things with FICM tuning.

Well I don't know a lot about these motors. I know I love speed so I might not ever be satisified. I don't tow anything at all except a bass boat so all I am looking for is speed nothing for towing.

Who can do the ficm tuning? What do larger injectors normally cost and what's installation cost?

FICM tuning can be done by several shops like Power hungry performance (PHP), Innovative diesel, or Quicktricks Automotive. Just google for their website.

Injector cost will depend on what size cc injector you want, and if you are gonna use your current injectors, injector core return, or new injectors. To get an idea of cost, here is a link.

If you plan on bigger injectors, your gonna need custom tuning.

Stick an SCT on there with some custom tunes and see what you think
