Question should i do this now or later???

So i am ready to hit the buy button on a d66 and was wondering what it will do for my truck with just having custom tunes, exhaust,6637? Should i buy it or should i go with different up grades and get it down the road later. Any suggestions?

rosewood stage twos is what i was looking at getting but then thought turbo first. Now idk what to do with this ww2 deal! I am in need of being set straight on what to do. rosewoods would be nice but dont have the cash for the e fuel, intercooler, and hpop too.

Then get those, do sticks later, and then turbo, your stock sticks will have a very hard time lighting a d66, but you will benefit from doing all the supporting mods first then move up to the stuff you want

Ok that was a big ? of mine, if the stock ones would spool the d66 up. So i think iam gunna get the sticks and i can get my hands on a hpop off a SD and the fuel pump and filter canister. Then i might be able to trade a buddy off mine for his intercooler/piping and spyder off his e99 and have that cat in the bag. Would that be what you guys would do if you where me?

OK i will go with that stuff then and do turbo later. I just dont want to do something that i should have waited on like if i would have got a d66 i would have been real disappointed that i couldn't spool it up. So i can run stock turbo and not worry it getting hot or sticks getting hot with a IC?
