Talking im new and wondering whats next..

hey guys! i just joined today and have to say that this is a pretty cool site. i like all the write ups on products and the how to section. just a quick question to get some of your opinions out there as far as what to do next. i dont really tow with my truck much yet, its just a daily driver that i like to bomb around with. i hate ricers and yuppies. naturally any chance i get i puff them all with soot. lol. the truck has around 125,000 miles on it and runs great. tranny shifts nice and firm. im looking to make her a little faster. i was thinking possibly a drop in turbo or injectors? any input? thanks!

Hey Welcome!! I think you should upgrade to 4inch exhaust!!! And then maybe some stage II's you should check to see if you have forged or pmr rods!

thanks for the reply! i was told that the early powerstrokes came with forged rods up to build date 10/00. after that i believe they started to put pmrs in with scattered forged rods...thats if my info is right...i heard that from another site..i was thinking straight 5 inch exhaust..but i havent come across any sound clips yet.

5" is overkill. Better off to go with a 4" turbo-back system,

That is unless you want to pay the extra $$ just for sound.

i agree exhaust should come next...

IMO i would get a better flowing Intake... your gonna need it if your gonna pull some bigger numbers... the AIS is a great filtering intake but it wont flow any better than stock

honestly i hadnt really thought about hp goals..i dont wanna go and break the bank and dump like 3 or 4 grand into the truck right now...im just kinda getting a little bored with it and would like to make it quicker..maybe spend like a grand now, recoop over winter (or try lol). what do you guys think i have for numbers now? 390 rwhp? and if i open up the intake with say a tymar would that help my economy? im not hoping for drastic numbers like an extra 10 mpg, just a thought..

Right now you're probably around the 300-305 hp level. After the exhaust I would consider saving $ to upgrade your tranny before adding more hp. I just like getting the drive train in shape to be able to handle the power, and not in the situation to make a forced repair/upgrade. Just my thoughts.... How many miles do you have on it?
