Question Cheapest performance?

Hey guys,
I'm still working on the body of my truck... its coming along. But My next question is.. where do I go from here with performance? Im on a budget, and want to get as much performance as I can without going overboard on cost. I installed a DIY intake, and a 4" exhaust... The downpipe is next. What is my best bet for the next few items to buy that arent overly expensive?



97 F-350 ZF-5 CCLB 4x4 D60/10.25 3.55s. 216,000. 6637,FPR shim, 3" DP to 4" exhaust, leveled, ION Alloy 171's, 315/75/16 Kelly Safari TSR's, some cosmetic goodies.

NEEDS: Rosewood 160/30's, beans tunes, T500, Autometer gauges, lockers, some chassis parts, a few other things

Someday I'll do a full build on it.

Gone but never forgotten-1995 F-250 7.3 PSD 5 Speed 4x4 SC LB. Man-o-day did that truck get up and go.

diy e fuel may come out cheaper than custom tunes, you could look into that one, before tuness, you should get gauges tho

Electric fuel. The OBS use a cam shaft actuated fuel pump. Has a slight lag in boosting fuel flow.
Electric fuel is constant and better.

See above.
Basically, you get an electric fuel pump. One off of a SD is a good pump. Put it in line somewhere before the motor and just set it up how you want.
There are various write ups on the fuel systems.

Yes it does. It's relative. It'd be like a Banks sticker or something like that.
