Mods must stop!!!

I'm kinda new here and need some help. I have set a limit of 5,000 dollars for mods. I have a 95 ext. cab 4x4 PSD auto trans. I already have a MBRP turbo back exhaust, afe stage 2 intake, guages, and am ordering a wildman chip. If I had 5k more to spend what and where should I spend it. The more time I spend here the more I "need" to mod my truck so the limit is 5k (for now)

Thanks

definatly need injectors, you can't make real power out of an OBS without them.

Injectors, Turbo, but I would beef up the transmission before you get to carried away.
What is it you'll be using the truck for?

It's my work truck. Not too much pulling, just a skid steer maybe once a week and a 30' camper a few times a year. Other than that I just want the power to play with. Don't know much about the powerstroke yet so specfics on your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Injector model and cost?
Turbo model and cost?
Tranny-what upgrades and cost?
HPOP who, what, when, where, and how much on this one?

This sounds like alot can I really do all of these and stay under $5000.00

thanks again

I would get a fully biult tranny from BTS, about $4000, but you will be ready for any power level down the road. DIY injectors from rosewood diesel shop, $500, and of course intake and guages to go along with that exhaust.

Injector model and cost? I would go with DIY-injectors.com stage 1s are gonna be 475-650 and stage 2s around 885
Turbo model and cost? D66 from beans diesel is about 1300
Tranny-what upgrades and cost? I would go with a BTS trans but that is about 4300
HPOP who, what, when, where, and how much on this one?OBS trucks have a 15* HPOP the 17* came on teh superduties 99.5-03 and it will keep up the oil pressure with bigger injectors, I got on for 150

This sounds like alot can I really do all of these and stay under $5000.00

thanks again
Hope that stuff in red helps
