Before you get injectors I would look into get into a regulated return kit from strictly diesel or dieselsite. Other then that it sounds like a good plan.

Gauges

Definitely need them before you get the chip

all depends on how much you want to spend... at first i would do the regular intake, exhaust, gauges and chip.... after that it starts costing big money...

do you have an auto or manual? if auto your going to have to drop in the 3k+ for a fully built trans to handle the power..
Injectors, Adrenalin pump, Turbo ect ect...

next thing you know your at about 6k+ in mods after the basic mods

I would say an essential mod is make sure that the pocket book is plenty big. Sounds like your getting into quite a bit there. I ended up stopping after exhaust, intake, gauges, and chip (in that order).

I'd pay close heed to that comment from Raul about the "support" mods. When you get one aspect of the truck that is ready for higher hp, torque, and strain.. got to make sure the rest is ready for the power as well.
