Whats the best upgrade order?

Was thinking of buying that Snow water/meth set up next week. I plan on HPOP, Injectors, and turbo this summer. Is there a "right" order in witch to purchase these items? Its a daily driver and I pull a 14k fifth wheel. Just not sure what my limits are. Im sure a rod or tranny is gonna go just not sure whats gonna be first!

I would wait and do water last to see if you still need it. Turbo is gonna bring egts down. I would do turbo first, then injectors and hpop at the same time that way you only have to get your chip teburned once.

I have the FU chip from PHP so I think they can upload or email my new tunes I think? If you had to pick between the last two what order would you do them? Im already at 24+ psi boost now and I think I read on here that the map sensor only reads to up around that. I am using Edge Insight for gauge so im reading off the map sensor. How much before I need new headstuds? And when a PMR does let go what all of these aftermarket parts am I gonna ruin if any? Thanks in advance for the help.

How big of an injector are you lookin to run? 160/30 with the 38r and an srp1 would be a solid 400 horse set up. You need to do fuel system mods, regulated return and hutch at least. And between the injectors and hpop it would depend on the health og the hpop. You have the insite cts, what is icp and duty cycle.

Well they are a codes with faster nozzles. Depends on current hpop strength really, but you wont break 400 on stock hpop. Oil is king with heui
