What's next?

So I have exhaust, intake, tuner, gauges, and that's about it i dont know what's next for performance? I don't know what's next? Or am I at the huge stuff? Like built tranny or new turbo?

if it was mine i would do big oil before anything else. seems to me it is like the building block for the rest of the bigger mods

What are your goals for the truck?

Bigger oil and trans upgrades are probably the most important building blocks.
I didnt follow that as I had to replace things as I went with the truck so I wound up with bigger power before the better parts

Even tho mine is in a way built backwards, my everyday tune doesnt let the truck run much different than stack, maybe 50 hp more. With trans upgrades and custom tunes it will be set...but there is always something to mod...so the fun never ends

In a perfect world I'd say built transmission -> bigger oil -> intercooled -> bigger sticks-> bigger turbo.
Have to agree with Fordman, if stuff starts breaking this can throw things off. Example, injectors take a dump. I'd personally rather have them rebuilt to Stage I or II's knowing I didn't have the supporting mods to utilize them to their full potential, as opposed to rebuilding them to stock and then re-rebuilding them to flow more in six months once I got a bigger HPOP and IC.

More high pressure oil to fire the injectors. Something like a Terminator T500 or even a 17* HPOP from a SuperDuty.
I'm assuming you're driving an auto? How many miles on it? Has it been rebuild?

What does that do? And nah it's a 5speed so probably just a good clutch? Or do I need to upgrade the few internals there are?
