What should i do next?

Well I just sold my car so I'm wanting to take truck to the next level. Iv got studs ect...., sct, exhaust and intake. What do y'all think I should do next? Iv got an injector or two acting up now so I'm probably going to change all with some upgraded ones.

A lot of things depend on how much money you have on how much horse power you want...


You could do 155 injectors with a stage 1 turbo. It would be a little bump over what you have now and not have to worry about any other big mods

You could also do 175s with a descent sized turbo and be right around 500hp give or take... but you will be getting really close to needing to do more upgrades. Your fuel system and transmission will be pushed to the limits. If you drive easy you will be fine. If you drag race, go to the track, or sled pull then the 175s will most likely kill your tranny and your fuel pressure will be low.


How big of a budget do you have?
Do you have any hp goals in mind?

Probably looking at a budget of around 3000. I would love to be closer to the 600hp range if that is doable on my budget.

How slightly built is your transmission?
Do you have an upgraded fuel system yet? Like reg return and aftermarket fuel pump/lift pump

600hp is more power than a lot of people think... lots of other things start going wrong with 600hp...


I am only at 530 and am worried every day that the tranny is gonna blow up, i really need to do a full system upgrade (still on stock), oh and traction becomes an issues.


600hp is most likely out of your price range of $3000 to have a good reliable setup.

Although you could get closer to 550hp with 175/75s and a descent sized turbo... that would be pretty close to your $3000 budget
