New Truck

Hey there guys bought a new truck a few weeks ago 2000 F250 6 speed manual 120K. short bed extended cab. Got a 4" lift. Pillar pod with pyro, boost, and oil temp.

Since I got it I have straight piped it, 4" all the way to a 7" tip. Replaced all the shocks, replaced stock mirrors with tow mirrors, added a stage 2 AFE intake.Added some extra back up lights And some other little mods like disassembling the door dinger so that it doesnt go off when the door is open and keys are in the ignition.

I have a PHP hyrda chip on the way that should be here this week.

I am looking to get some more power without completely destroying my fuel millage or my motor. I am wondering what other modes that people are having success with. Im thinking about installing a Wicked wheel but am probably just going to wait until the stock wheel needs to be replaced. I also dont want to do anything to crazy that might sacrifice the longevity of the motor.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks guys

You might get surge with the stock wheel. That's why everyone changes to the wicked wheel.
Fortunately their is some good compressor wheels out there such as bd's wheel,riffraff,and wicked wheel gen2.
Stage 1 single shot injectors are a great upgrade. Better mileage and easily hit 400 hp with the supporting mods.
Stock hpop works but the t-500 is a good upgrade
Riffraff FRx is good for the injectors without the cost of a full regulated return
Pretty solid setup that I plan doing myself in the next year.
