Looking for input from you guys.

Thinking seriously about doing some of bigger mods on my truck. I'm looking for some input from you guys that have done these, before I take the dive. I'm looking at doing a set of stage "1" 160cc sticks, D66 turbo, IDM mod, tunes for my TS chip, and having my E40D overhauled to take the grunt.
My truck is daily driven and used for play and to haul the family and our 32ft travel trailer, which weighs in @ 8800 dry.

Just want to know if its really worth the money? Does it really make a huge difference in power and torque as they advertise? What kind of gas mileage are you guys getting with this set up?(AVG)

Thanks guys.

the stage one injectors will REALLY wake the truck up with those other supporting mods you mentioned, My buddy pulls a 30' camper n his 95 f350 CC dually and he has stage 1's and he gets around 10. In my opinion I think the more power a diesel makes the better the fuel economy, it depends on the right foot too

I daily drive the truck in my sig. The Stage 1s and custom tuning are a huge difference. I actually had my chip out for a few days and I was depressed at how little power the truck had. I get high 16s to 18mpg depending on how I drive. I reccomend the mods you listed, you will not be dissappointed.
