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.
