What to do next?

Looking at getting some more stuff into my truck. Right now I have exhaust, xtreme x and wildman extreme tunes, blue spring mod, gauges, edge cts, studs, and just out on a set of 35s, with a newton leveling kit on the way. Looking at what will be my next best move to go for some performance gains? Also need something to help keep my axle hop down for when I sled pull. My fuel pressure is reading 54-56 at idle, and about 30 at wot with my blue spring mod, so if there is something I can do to help that? My egts are staying around 600-700 crusing, and around 1200-1350 at wot. Don't have all the money in the world, so I have to do the most cost efficent things first.

Any advice is much appreciated!

The things im considering:
Ficm tune from php
Turbo
Injectors
S&b intake.

I looked into that but it seemed like it didnt do as much as it stated for hp gains, and seemed expensive to lower egts when I dont have a problem. Is there something else to it that im missing?

Thanks!

I vote turbo and injectors... you will get your best bang for your buck out of those two. After that gains can be minimal

Edit: definitely get all you fuel pressure issues taken care of first and finish all you bulletproofing... I was just picking out of the list u had but then reread your fuel pressure issue

I would be looking into getting a new fuel system if its dropping down to 30, if you get bigger injectors and can't hold atleast 45 your going trash them.

Stay away from the air dog 2, they are horriable. I would look into a a1000 with a air dog 150 lift pump and regulated return, that's what I'm looking at doing to mine soon
