What mods are next?

Gauges? After that it's just small stuff till you want to get into bigger injectors and a turbo. Auto or manual?
Edit: also what are your goals with truck and what do you plan on doing with it?

It is an an auto mild built. I have gauges just not installed. Im looking to get between 400 to 500hp. But to get there do you do e fuel first like there is so much I just kinda need a list in order. This truck does everything from hauling cattle hooking to a sled to running down the street. I just don't know where to start.

I would definitely say an intercooler, I just installed my Banks kit and it truly transformed my truck into a torque machine. I can't believe it is the same truck. it may be pricey but in my opinion the best bang for the buck so far....

500 will need a built trans to live. Big jump from 400 to 500hp as far as what needs to be done. It starts getting expensive.

What branch, thanks for your service

Intercooler, Efuel, hpop, injectors, custom tuning, hook up gauges, and see where you land

No problem, and let us know where you decide to start, I have a friend in the naval men's department (Marines) and has a reg cab 97 and it really is completely hooked up, and it's immaculate
