Next mod???

Im kind of between dicisions on my next mod the my truck, Ive got about a grand to spend but want to make my purchase worth it, also dont know which one would come first, currenty my only mods are 6637, IDM, and dp with straight 5" to dual 6" stacks, its a 2wd long bed crew cab, 168K on the clock. Im wanting more power!! lol I was thinking prob a ts chip and ww2 or riff raff wheel. If you guys could think of something else I should prob go with first please give your advice. Thanks

injectors!
Biggest bang for your buck on these OBS trucks, Rosewood has cheap stage ones and then get a custom tuned chip.

Injectors and a chip will put you about 50% over $1,000. I'd say a chip, custom tunes and gauges if you don't have any yet. That should put you just around a thousand dollars. I am in the same boat as you and will be doing this after I do some other preventative maintenance things like a total fuel bowl rebuild, new y pipe boots and a scan tool, jeez the list seems endless.

rosewood budget stage 1s are cheap, only $500, IF you have good cores, custom chip about the same.

Thanks, I didn't know you could get them that cheap. I was too focused on looking at the baby swamps.

Dont have any guages yet so prob a good idea to get them. Also with the injectors, if I get stage ones or two's and dont have a chip the computer will think they are stock and treat them as such, will that harm anything? Im thinking a custom tuned ts and a set of guages prob best then save for injectors, and maybe the wicked wheel 2

GAUGES. Do not star adding fuel until you get gauges. Like Raul said, gauges and a chip. Then get injectors.

I see you recommend the WW2 several times to people. Have you run one yet? Worth the money and time to install?

OP, I would get custom tunes and some sort of gauges (I wish I had gotten the Edge CTS instead of my full set of EV2s). Then save for some injectors if that's not enough for you.
