What to go with

okay well i am not going to lift my truck anymore, and after i sink the money into it to fix it up im gonna put some aftermarket stuff on it. so far i have on my list

gauges- buying tonight
5" budget kit or dual 7" mitres- what do you think would look better?
Tw chip/PHP chip- not sure yet
ATS Housing and X wheel- low on list
BTS/John wood Valve body- what ones better.

im hopin this will make my truck better than the canned tune slug it is now

Either valve body will be great!! I would start with that wheel first, that cured all my surge issues.

Sounds like a good list!!

you cant go wrong with either valve body.. but make sure you get that before you get your tunes so that it can be tuned to that specific valve body.... 5" reg exhaust looks better IMO.. dont get me wrong i love stacks but they get old pretty quick

if your interested in package deal prices let me know and i can get you a good deal on most of the stuff on your list

BTS/John wood Valve body- either one's gonna be great. if you eventually get a BTS 4R100 then I'd say the BTS VB

Gauges = Only Isspro
Intake = you already have
Exhaust, you don't need a 4" system let alone a 5", the factory restriction is when they necked down the exhaust to go through a 2.5" muffler to save some $$$, either straight pipe it or use the Walker BTM and save your $$$. This isn't the popular way to go but it is the truth and many have proved it to be so. If your system is shot go 4" because you can get a aftermarket 4" cheaper than a stock 3.5" system.
Valvebody for trans, FTVB, BTS, or JW you pick, FTVB has been doing them longer than anyone else!!!
Then and only then should you add more ponies
Wait on the WW and turbo housing and see if you have surge, many don't. I never have.
That is how I would proceed.
