Looking For Advice About Upgrades

I have a 1994 350 Dually, I am looking to upgrade MAJORLY. I tow a 5th wheel that rakes in at just over 12K so not looking to do anything speed or flashy, mainly for performance and durability. I am sitting stock right now. Had the trans. redone when first got the truck, but other than that looking for what would you do to just get some advice.

Also looking for a good shop in or near Central Indiana. Thanks in advance.

you most likely have an IDI. don't know too much about them. but if yours isn't turboed you can add a turbo. you can also turn the fuel up on the injection pump, but you should get an EGT gauge before you mess with it

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)

^^^ this is what my response would have been if terry didn't beat me to it

Also look into a Trans gauge to ensure your not overheating it too
