Starting my mods

Hello everyone...

I thought that I would start my mods this summer by installing gauges in my truck first, then do the exhaust (turbo back, no cat), and then do some type of tuner (for towing and mileage only), if needed.

Reason I wanted to do the gauges first is because I do some camping throughout the summer and fall and I would like to know what's going on under the hood when I'm towing our 33' fifth wheel toy hauler.

I figured gauges are more or less a preference type thang, but is one brand better than another? What about exhaust? Would like to a 4" turbo back cat delete for more power and lower EGTs.

Comments and suggestions are welcome...

I have auto meter gauges and they work great. As for the exhaust I have Banks but its a little pricey, MBRP is good also.. Raul@Stealthautomotive sells both the exhaust and gauges, and has great customer service you might wanna contact him about them.

well get u some diprocol or isspro gauges or if your on a budget u can get the glowshifts off of ebay with the pod which are pretty nice. as for exhaust i would go with mbrp stainless if funds are there then get u a sct with custom tunes and let her eat.

Isspro is what I got and I like them.... The egt gauge is said to be better as is measures tip temp and dosent compensate. The tranny gauge is full sweep at no charge. I was thinking about getting glowshifts and for $100 difference I decided to get a better gauge package. I got mine from dfuser bill is a great guy easy to deal with. Dfuser is a tx guy so that's why I got them there. Diesel manor has a great install guide
