List of Mods... How did they perform???

My truck has some down time, as the fiance is carpooling, so I wanna get somethings done to it while she sits. What are some good mods that work? What order should I go in? Easy to hard... Just want to see what you guys think, and how they perform.

I already want to do the CCV mod, but I want to weld in a connector to my exhaust (as long as I can get a good angle on the tube to the ex I should be pulling a vacuum. Also plan on running a one way valve in there just to make sure there is no pressure going into the motor.

PS. Just ordered my DP Tuner. It should get here next week. I can't wait!!!!

I just went through a bit of research to install the set of gauges you will want/need when adding a Tuner. I am looking at adding a 6 position switch on the fly chip/tuner by either TS or PHP. I decided to add my gauges first. If you dont already have them you may want to add the gauges, Pyro, Boost and Trans Temp. Just a thought

thanks

I see that your running 38's, have you replaced your tranny yet or put gears in by any chance?? This is a weak point behind the 7.3s. If you can, maybe get yourself a BTS VB, maybe even look into a upgraded torque converter. Another thing to look at is a tranny cooler. Anything to help the trans out.

Yeah my dad n I rebuilt the tranny right before the lift. It has all Hughes performance clutches and valves. I just got ahold of a 6.0 cooler and I'm gonna put that on next weekend. I want to do gears soon too. 4.10 or more???
