Advice on performance

Hey y'all

I am pretty new to this. I just bought my truck a few weeks ago. I've got a 95 f250 4x4 5speed ec. lb. 188k. 33x12.5x16.5 wildcats

Please use small words and be descriptive(visual aids are welcome)

I'm wondering how much reliable and effective power u can get out of these motors. I'm in the army so I'll be nickel and dimeing this progect. If you were to build your own daily driver/stoplight terrorizer/mud truck. What would you add and in what order? I know I need a clutch soon and 2nd gear is messed up so rebuilding/replacing tranny is on the list. Also, suggestions on a nav system, tires/wheels, suspension level/lift, spray in Bedliner, and where to get replacement interior parts. Also, I'm located in Denver right now

I know that's alot but I look forward to getting some opinions and suggestions. Hooah

Clutch i would go with a South bend Con OFE good for 450 hp

Stage 1 injectors get yours rebuilt for $500

17 degree HPOP about $200

custom tuning 400 to 500

intercooler- can piece together for 300 to 600

leveling kit- add a leaf under $100

That should put you around 300 to 330hp and reliable for a couple grand

That hp dont sound like alot, but the 700+ ft lbs of torque WILL get your attention. How streetable do you want it? There are guys here running bigger injectors and better turbos and run them on the street around 400+ hp. Otherwise what Stroke said lol

That sounds good. This truck is my alternate daily driver so streetability is a must. I was looking and it seems banks is the only company that has stuff for 95's. Is there stuff good quality. Cost isn't important. I would rather buy a good part once than ok parts twice. Thanx for he advice so far

I wouldn't buy any thing from banks besides there intercooler tubes.

Check out some of the sponsors of the websites, they will hook you up for a great deal.

Any questions on specific stuff, just shoot me a pm and we can get your truck to running better than it ever hasl
