my recommendations would be gauges, exhaust, intake, 6 position chip, and a valve body.

definitely exhaust and intake first. youll get immediate results and if your pulling a lot some gauges or something like a bully dog watchdog to watch EGT and trans more precisely. if its mostly for towing a chip with tow settings or a banks trans command later down the road will probably help a lot too.

First up grades?

A 5" isn't worth the extra money, they use a 4" down pipe to 5" pipe back...no greater benefit than a 4" and about 100 bucks less, secondly...GAUGES!!, then after a baseline of those results, I'd recommend a good change of all fluids, then the 6637 intake, valve body, then CUSTOM tunes.

Nah go 4" diamond eye turbo back. Great kits, very affordable! I think I paid 230 shipped. I have the wicked wheel in mine, got rid of the wild surge I was getting

Intake, exhaust, gauges, and tunes. Usually people do them in that order too.

We can get you setup with any and all of those products if you are interested.

Something you may want to look into is our Infinity monitor/programmer. It will work as your gauges and it will tune. It will also run diagnostic tests, datalog, read/clear DTC's, and much more. You can check it out HERE.

Let me know if you have any questions.
