SCT w/ custom tunes
Nitrous
Studs

But if you want 500hp all the time then you will need injectors, fuel pump, turbo. (5000$)

Hmmm. I think if you really, and I mean really tried you might be able to be more vague? I have some injectors outta my Cat backhoe, I have turbo out of a Cat 3406, If you can talk him into it, I'll sell'em to him. In all seriousness, I for one would take notes on your opinion on this subject, seeing as I'm about 3 payments away from taking ownership of my truck and going to have some money to play with.

Injectors? on a 6.0. I would not do injectors until you replace the turbo.


headstuds
egr delete
sct/custom tunes
fuel system
air dog
non VGT turbo
aftermarket air filter
injectors
modded HPOP from dieselsite
