What to do now.

So besides gauges, what else is there to order, performance wise. My goal is high 14s at best or low 15s. So far I have sct programmer,intake,exhaust,egt gauge,map fooler. the exhaust will be installed tomorrow morning.

What other mods is there to buy that would be somewhat cheap(under 600 bucks) that would help out?

I will except low 15s, I doubt I will see low 14s, dont really wanna spend too much money, just a few simple things to get it a little faster.. it weighs about 8000 lbs, CCSB 4x4. so mid to low 15s would be great. I've seen wga mods, turbo mods are pretty expensive, so are the IC and injectors. But if theres anything else out there power wise let me know. Im willing to spend another 600 for now.

That's cool. It seems when you start modding one thing leads to another and so on and so on. You got the need for speed. LOL

well like I said... the snow performance... not only will it give you more power... it will keep the egt's lower... which will help you to run the piss out of your truck here and there...
