What should I do next?

99 250 psd*** so far I have a superchips programmer, 4" exhaust, k and n cold air intake.** I have been reading alot about the tony wildman ,* would this be a better way for me to go.* what would be the advantages?* How much?* I am looking for economy, towing, and some major hp for fun.* also, I had thought that the k and n was a good way to go, but it seems that most are talking about the aiy ???* any suggestions?** How about a throttle spacer, do these work ?

What is the build date of your truck?

The spacer works at lightening your wallet, that is all.

I would get a chip from either DP tuner or Tony Wildman. The gain over your programmer will probably be around 25-30hp. The butt dyno will say "Holy cow, why didn't I do this sooner"

Open the exhaust with at least getting rid of the stock muffler and maybe the putty-tat(if you have one). However a full 4" exhaust system would be best.

Get that K&N out of there before you do any damage. See if a Napa filter will fit on the current set up.

Put in an overboost annihilator or some other overboost fooler.

Then put on a banks big head or turbomaster wastegate controller.

That will bring the boost up to the high 20's and make things breather a lot easier.

I agree with most all of that. If you wanted to keep the K&N, I would get a pre-filter and put it on. If you do a lot of dusty dirt road driving, I would change it out. All street, I would say not to worry about it too much, just keep it clean and oiled. 4" would be a great next step. If you do not have any gauges, that should be at the top of the list.

Sure you can Do you have guages now and are you overboosting already? Also to the original poster keep your superchips as a code reader if you go with the chip. Thats what I plan on doing

Man of words here...listen to what Howard has to say. His information proves to be invaluable over and over again.

Got a couple of questions.* #1 what is a putty tat?* If you are talking about the egpv, I already have it in the open position all the time.* #2 I'm not familiar with a overboost fooler? what is it do, how does it install, are there different manfgs, and how much are they? I already have a 4" exhaust. If i went with a dp or tw, what settings would be recomended. I use the truck for normal driving most of the time, some hauling.. i have a 22' glass boat. I like feeling the power, but also want to get decent mpg.
