Do you want it to be as fast as it can and still have manners or you just looking for a little extra umph that takes you a little above and beyond just a tuner?

If as fast as it can, then I wouldn't go bigger then stage III injectors with a 66 or 68 mm turbo. As far as which one first, I'm really one of those that likes to do it at one time, if I just had to choose, I would do injectors first and just have some near stock tuning until I could get the turbo. It's a lot easier to compensate for too much fuel then it is for not enough air.

Casserly at Full Force Diesel for the injectors and River City Diesel for the turbos. I use both for my setup and have nothing but good things from both. Customer service is top notch from both.

Outdated probably. Mine is an 06 and I'm using his injectors.

It helps alot when your local to the man. He really bent over backwards and I didn't get the impression that he hated to do it either. When I get service like that I do nothing but praise the person.
