I assume you have gauges?
what will limit your power first? Fuel and HPOP
What will you destroy first? trans

Turbo and trans will destroy themselves. Hpop and fuel just limit the potential of the injectors.

Let's find out!

In all honesty, I did a fuel system first because it will help out even a stock truck. Turbo, injectors, and trans will be next for me. I'm going to save enough for turbo and injectors and make sure I have enough to cover a trans when the stock one goes. I would have gone with Hybrids if I was you because they can be detuned. With Stage 2's you really need a HPOP to go with them.

It's a time bomb with stage 2's. Valve body and torque convertor and the tranny will be fine with those upgrades.

Gauges?

Beyond that, what size injectors? "stage 2" means crap... CC and nozzle size...

Unless you like walking, get the tranny built.
