I wanna go faster!!!

Like the title says, I want to go faster. I don't have a lot of money like some other guys, so I want to know what would give me the most performance for my dollar. What would you guys do next? My current mods are in my sig.

Thanks!!!

I know this wont make the truck any faster but headstuds and deleting the egr would be a good idea on the 6.0(might already have them but didnt seem them in your sig)

Headstuds and EGR delete are definately plans for me, but I didn't want to do the headstuds until needed. The gaskets were replaced when the previous owner had the truck and I've heard some people say that when the dealer replaces them they are actually better than stock, but . I need to researchand see how hard the EGR delete will be to do.

I plan on getiing a 5" exhaust in a couple weeks to open it up a little more.

Would I be better going with a bigger turbo or bigger injectors and what is the price range for each?

I would think about injectors and turbo AFTER the studs and egr delete. Just keep in mind..... YOU GOTTA PAY TO PLAY! Trust me on this one, I know all too well! You will also need a solid tranny. The 5r110 is a well-built tranny but it can only take so much and it will give up on you, I found that out the hard way as well. The secret to going fast is all in the tuning. You will also need a support system for those injectors, meaning some type of fuel system. I laid down 441 rwhp with just a tune, exhaust, turbo, cracked flex pipe and lifted heads. Like I said, be ready to pay the price. It ain't cheap to go fast.
