Probably gonna be good. I know autos better.
TS 6pos chip, running up to +140hp
Get a custom tuned TS style chip. Same chip but with someone writing tunes just for what is on your truck. Much better.
K&N intake adding about 50hp (i hope)
NO! No intake adds "50 HP" but helps your truck breathe. A DIY is a good one.
i'm not sure which brand yet, but a 5'' turbo back exhaust
You don't NEED it. But if you're gonna be going big big big later on, might as well now.
any comments on those please let me know, and my overall question is:
1) Is it necessary to install a EGT sensor, i figured by putting a 5'' turbo back, i'm sure not to have a problem.
Gauges, always. For you, boost, EGT, and then maybe fuel pressure, coolant temp, high pressure oil gauge
2) I've looked around on several websites trying to find fuel injectors at a reasonable price, shooting for 160cc stage 1 or 2 split shot injectors, anything over 50+hp and a link would be outstanding.
Casserly, Rosewood Diesel to name a couple. Just google them.
If you're staying with the stock turbo, get an ATS ported shroud housing for the compressor. And maybe a 1.0 exhaust housing if you're going with bigger sticks. Adrenaline HPOP would be a good idea. Or a Terminator pump. Eventually a bigger fuel system. And bigger turbo. And it keeps going, and going, and going
