Cummins Guy helping Stroker

Hey guys im a Cummins guy, but my friend just asked me what i can do to give him more power for his stroker. Im not to familiar with the performance and drivetrain on the Strokers.
He has an auto E40D tranny. Completely bone stock. I know my dodge had to have built tranny because they suck. In order for him to get a good kick in power what do you guys suggest. I told him build the tranny (unless they arent like a dodge) a tuner (SuperChip, TS, HyerTech), and gauges. Then if he wants later on a set of injectors and a turbo upgrade. What do you all recommend would be a good mild setup for him?

Im a member on cumminsforum and know all about the stickies. I appreciate if you dont ride me about this. Thanks in advance

pretty sure to was mechanical , set of gauges , new exhaust system , tymar 6637 intake to get more air flowing and a set of Tony Wildman tunes or DP or TS...those are the basics untill you move into injectors and turbos , althought im pretty sure he will need to beef up the E40D ounce he moves into injectors and turbos

Mechanical or electrical what?

The Powerstroke is a HEUI engine - Hydraulically-powered Electronically-controlled Unit Injector. Engine control is completely electronic; the accelerator is drive-by-wire. The fuel pump itself is mechanical.
