What to do?

I have an 07 Harley Davidson f-250 6.0 powerstroke. it has a 12" rize lift, 40 x 15.50 r 20 toyos, has the xd rockstar wheels right now but keep having them crack so friday i am picking up new mazzi hulk wheels. I have 5 inch mbrp exhaust, that go to 7" aussie cut stacks. I have afe cold air intake, with the banks 6 gun pda. it has 456 gears in front and back. I want to put something new in it to give it make it faster, but I wasn't for sure on what programmers are worth the money. I was also wondering about injectors/turbos. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and i'll try to get some pictures up here this weekend of my truck.

An custom tuned SCT is well worth the money

I would do a custom tuned SCT and see if you want more from there. Innovative and Dj's seem to be the most popular around here

im pretty sure the banks 6 gun pda is a chip. have you ever tried to change the level higher? but i would get rid of it and get the sct.

the banks has power levels 1-6, plus the SL setting. 1 is stock and SL is the highest setting, i run it on the SL at all times. How much do the sct chips run, and how expensive are head studs? I've heard from quiet a few ppl if i put head studs in i won't have to worry about the head gaskets going out

studs are around 400+ install but you cant run a programmer and a chip at the same time. if you do you can blow stuff up big time. Dj sells the sct xcal3 and unlimited custom tuning for $425.
