4inch exhaust Farm Boy's Diesel makes a nice kit for a great price, Intake I'd go with the AFE Stg II, Chip either the Tony Wildman or DP Tuner. Turbo: I've got the Turbonetics Ceramic BB and love it and the Garrett BB is good also.

As far as the Trans I'd get a valvebody, Triple Disc Convertor, and Transgo Trugger Kit.

exhaust - 4" turbo back, I know a place having a sale right now for 300 shipped for Aluminized and 340 shipped for SS... PM me if ya want.
intake - Love my AFE stage 2, but there are others, Tymar, AIS... The are all good.
chip - Dp Tuner or www.totaldieselperformance.com... about $400 depending on the settings
turbo - What are you wanting out of the truck? You dont need a turbo for basic mods... A ATS housing for $400 will cure all surge issues. If not, A Turbonetics BB unit is what I would recomend.


anything else i should buy to improve on it?
do i need to add anything to the trans to make it hold up??

Tranny Valve body will help, be it a BTS or a John Woods...

Gauges... Isspro, thats why I run 16 of them...
