Value of truck after mods question

Looking for some opinions. I have a 97 Crew 4x4 Centurion package with automatic with 134,000 miles. It is a rust free very clean truck. I have done the Napa air intake mod, 3" downpipe back MBRP exhaust, and gauges.

My question is: I am looking to go to a newer dually in a year or two. I currently pull a camper and would like more power so I am considering doing Stage I's, Intercooler, and Tunes. Would this hurt the value of the truck for selling later?? I am very easy on the truck and do not rod it at all. I use it for pulling a camper several times a year and a little bit of driving here and there.

Don't know wether to do the Stage I's and stuff or just leave her be.

Thanks for any thoughts.

IMHO I think it increases the value a little. Most trucks OBS trucks I see with bigger injectors, Intercoolers and the such go for more money... especially when they are clean rust free trucks.

The value will go up to possible buyers that KNOW about these trucks, but if the buyer is a "newb" per say then the value will not be positively affected most likely.

As long as you do everything right those mods should increase the overall value. I wouldnt expect a 100% return as a perspective new owner could easily spend the same dollar for the same mods. Your best market is likely here on the ORG

Really depends on who you end up selling the truck to. A grandpa who's looking for something to tow his 12ft boat behind will probably have no clue what stage I injectors are, much less care that the truck has them. If the guy knows what the value of each mod is, and planned on doing it to the truck anyways they will pay a premium to have it done already.
Like stroked said, you'll never see a 100% return on any performance part, I'd say closer to 40%. If you drop $2500 into performance parts, you might be able to add $1000 to your asking price.
Example would be my latest truck when I bought it. The guy had receipts from a sixteen month period before selling the truck that added up to more than I paid for it (trans, turbo, lift, frontend, wheels, tires, etc).

depends on how they were done. for example if you have some big $$$ stereo installed but done poorly that will lower the value, but if the buyer wants it and it's done well it would add to the value
