more power

Give me some tips on how to get the best HP for the lowest money...
Im not looking to go huge i just want a little extra power

I have a 96' F-350 with 180,00 on it. I have a 70-80 HP Banks chip and a billet rebuilt tranny. recently took off the cad. convertor and muffler to make it a 3.5" straight.

Just want a little more power...

Also does anyone have suggestions about where or how to go about getting injectors redone or cleaned?

You can make the intake pipe with exhaust pipe then get a 6637 filter from napa, then defintitely get a downpipe, guages and a TW chip and if you want to keep going do some stage 1 injectors and an intercooler after

Thats all i have been hearing is TW chip... is that the way to go these days?

I think my next step is injectors though, then the downpipe after that...

Then save up some more since im only 18 and get the TW chip

You want to get an open exhaust and a better intake before you put bigger injectors and you will need a custom tuned chip with the bigger injectors but before doing the injectors do the supporting mods.

Injectors after all the supporting mods will make the biggest difference.
