Suggestions before upgrades

Have fuel in my overflow so while I'm replacing the injector cups, i've decided to do a few upgrades while im in there.

What i've planed so far is the injector cups and tools from Riffraff, new FU2 chip from PHP to replace my Superchips 1705, new glow plugs, and a new set of 238/100 injectors from Full Force Diesel. Also going to put in a BTS valve body until the future plans come together after the tax returns come

I plan on putting a new turbo (undecided t4 type), bellowed up-pipes, and a full BTS tranny in the spring when the tax returns come in.

Would you change anything? I only ave $3000 to work with.

Stage 1 Full Force Injectors

New under valve cover harnesses. Do the 50 cent mod too while you're under there. (I think that is what it is called? Force a modified quarter under each plug to ensure that they do not come unplugged.)

We have a CPA member down there with a shop that could give you a great deal of advice.
