6.0 upgrades

I've fully bullet proofed my 2004 6.0, cold air intake, mbrp straight pipe exhaust, sct livewire with the stock tunes it comes with so far. I'm looking for some advice on next upgrades I should do or things to keep my baby from breaking. I've got a buddy with a dmax who wants to challenge me and we all know I can't let him win. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm willing to spend a couple hundred every few months. What exactly does the atlas 40 do? I didn't really find a good answer online

Turbo
Injectors
Good tunes



These are by far the best upgrades out there. They are the best bang for your buck (besides nitrous)

KC Turbos

Start with custom tunes, then maybe exhaust, that would be enough, but a turbo would be nice too, matched with proper injectors... you wouldn't lose but you'd have head gasket problems soon lol

I just had gaskets replaced and an exhaust system put in. The problem with a new turbo or injectors is the price ha. My wife might kill me of I did that.
