My next step

Okay I know everyone on here is probably getting tired of seeing repeated post of what mods to do, but im stuck. Currently I have tunes, egr delete, 4” straight pipe turbo back, K&N stage 2, Airad power elbow with deleted actuator, coolant filtration system, im all set on the gauges, most of the free do it your selfers like zoodad, and line lockers. So, with that said where do you guys think I should go next fuel system, turbo??? I need some ideas. I don’t have studs nor do I plan on getting them till I need them, but I do have a fuel return kit to install when the heads do go. I also plan on upgrading the heads and gaskets at that time, so for now any ideas? Thanks for the help.

Unless your going to be going well over 500 hp, you'll won't need to mess with the headache of a/m head gaskets.

Yeah, but while im in there I might as well do it correctly, I was considering fire rings and heads when the time comes; and who knows maybe one day I will decide to go above 500 and do more internal work.

In that case be sure to take your time. A/M gaskets require everything to be damn near perfect on the install.
