Help with mods please, what to do next

So i got some extra money for my birthday! And im looking into some performance upgrades again just can't decide which to go with first. I want the most benfit for fuel milage power etc..... Kinda wanted to get the expensive stuff out the way first. but lets see here


exhaust? looking in to stacks! Still running stock so kinda sucks
Fuel system upgrade i.e. Airdog 150 pump
CFM large mouth intake????

As listed I think the fuel system is the most expensive so far.


Any ideas????????????????????


Also i can't down the truck more then 2 days so i heard that the fuel pump crap goes into alot of work but im not really a nub to this so about how long does it take?

All thats done is
Mach 7
factory exhaust with muffler and cat delete
this is for my 06 powerstroke by the way

SCT with custom tunes, 4" TB exhaust with stacks, duels, single or whatever, gauges (pyro, trans temp, and boost). That will get you started. How much money do you have to spend? What is a Mach 7, a razor?

There isn't any need to have a bigger FP if your running the stock tuning, and injectors. The intake elbows are suppose to be nice, from what I've heard.

I put the boost gauge in my pillar because the stock one isn't very accurate, neither is the tranny temp gauge.

You still should try some custom programming with the SCT. They can take your bigger injectors and pump into consideration when building your tunes. I still stand by my previous mods though
