Tymar intake and a DP tuner would be your biggest gains for least $$ spent. Of course if you go with a tuner you will need gauges and eventually an exhaust.

i agree with the DIY tymar intake... i would go with a Tony Wildman chip or DP Tuner... but you will need gauges... i can set you up with a Gauge/chip combo price.....

exhaust

how much was that exhaust ? i heard an f250 the other day on idle you can hear a whistle sound like if the noise of the turbo was coming out of the exhuast does your exhaust do that ? i would love to get that sound

a valve body would be good...but i would also suggest a tripple disc TC while your at it... it will help hold that extra power your gonna be pushing out....

also has a real nice whistle coming from exhaust now, but to be honest the intake did more for that than the exhaust imo.
