Question Early 99 Cheap Mods to do.

Hello, I am new it this forum and to diesels in general. This is the first one I have ever owned. I am learning about them quickly though and I want to make sure my knowledge is correct so I figure you guys would be the best to talk to.

So I am looking to do some fuel mods or little DIY in a weekend mods. I am wondering what are some good ones to do. I am going to put the info on my truck in my signature in a second. I have been looking into an exhaust back pressure delete or bypass?? anyone know what that would be or the benefits? Also going to drill bigger holes into the fuel bolts going into the heads on the fronts and backs.

What are more good mods to do and tat I can do myself for kind of cheap or even free?!!

Appreciate any answers. Thank you!

Ok thanks for the heads up. Why would you not mess around with drilling the bolts. And I have the intake and the exhaust already. I cant figure out how to get my signature on the page haha dumb i know.

3in lift with helper springs, 37in tires, 6637 DIY Intake, SCT 3 tuner looking to get some custom tunes soon, Gauges with edge monitor, 4in turbo back exhaust leading to dual 5in stacks. Next Summer trying to get in head studs and a ZEX dry nitrous kit.

Yes i Have most of the easy and cheap stuff done. Now I am looking to get to more technical things.

And that mod is what I was talking about for drilling. But no I do not know because a lot of people are saying it doesnt work and I dont want to be wasting more fuel.
