what upgrades now?

OK so the upgrades I have now are, 4.5 stacks, Ts 6pos chip, isspro Pyro, 6637, zoodad. Trans temp and boost gauge soon to come. So my question is. What to upgrade now? I dont have tons of cash to play with. I do have a fab shop so I can diy almost anything. What would you guys mod next? Im looking to eventually get a new turbo and injectors. So anymore supporting mods? Some cheaper ones. Thanks guys.

I got the pipe all the way to where the down pipe starts going up. I welded it all myself. And what should I look for in head studs? Sorry if this is a stupid question. First powerstroke. Kinda new to the whole diesel scene. Thanks alot.

I would get a larger exhaust system that starts at the turbo. Type in ARP head studs

You don't need studs yet.
Custom tunes.
Trans could use at least a valve body.
An Frx or full rr system. Bigger hpop possibly.

Then you could do the whole injector/turbo combo. But not cheaply.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
