Some Updating and upgrading

Well It it is time i say. Time to go through the top end of the motor. I am sick of all the oil leaks and fuel leak but I figured instead of just replaceing why not do some upgrades. I tow with my truck but its also my daily driver I look for power but also an efficant truck.I am not looking to hit the track or blow smoke everywhere even though with what I listed I will somewhat. I usualy post after when I am done but I am posting now to get some opinions on my choices remember I am on a budget. So here is the list.

new Glowplugs
Dorman Valve cover gasket with UVCH
can't afford new injectors so I will either leave them alone or buy Rosewood DIY
Adreniline HPOP with new oil lines
Carter Lift pump
Turbo o rings and pedistal orings
Fuel filter housing o rings
Either beans IDM or Swamps IDM

All in all I will be dong a TW chip in the future and if I don't touch the injectors I will be buying stage 1 Have some other plans not listed but far into the future anys open to opinion I still got a chevelle to put together

Randy
