not sure what route to go??

With the current mods in my sig, I would like to go bigger injectors and either a wheel or new turbo, but not sure. I would like a badass daily driver/street truck and an occasional sled puller. and maybe as time goes on and after its paid off make it a dedicated puller. I know the best bet would be go big like 238/100 and 38r so I have a lot of room to grow into, but I just don't know how practical it would be while its still a daily driver. Plus, the bigger I go the more I'm going to have to do (fuel pump, hpop, head studs, rods, springs, etc.) to support those mods. I'm sure some of you guys have been in my shoes and can help me out so that's why I'm asking. and if you guys have questions for me to help you give me the best advice, just ask
thanks

I wanted 230/100's but Jody at DP insisted that 175/80's were a better bet for me as it's my daily driven work truck that needs to remain reliable for me to make a living.

When I was talking with Jason at Dyno Proven a while ago, he seemed to feel the same way.

Now that they're in my truck I'm happy with them and the truck rips.
I'll always wonder what it would have been like with hybrids though...

I second what Joel said. I didn't want to have to do a full fuel system nor an immediate transmission build. I could not be happier with my set up. It's near perfect for a daily driver. I'm hoping some live tuning will help my mileage, but everything else is great!

Alright thanks guys, and yeah that's another reason I'm not sure how big to go because I don't wanna go with say 160/100 and regret not going bigger

I think you will ALWAYS regret not going bigger. Heck I do...but in the end, I did the responsible thing with my daily driver. So I'm good with that! But don't get me wrong...my new power is great...but my nature always wants more....and more ALWAYS get me into trouble!

Yeah that's very well said, I'm thinking I'll go with a mild build so I have a badass daily driver and a decent occasional sled puller

I have experience with both 160/30's and 175/80's

The 160's wil leave you dissappointed, but a 175/80 or 180/100 is a very fun truck that never seems to get too hot on the EGTs or anything

I'm thinking full force 205cc injectors with a 38r and airdog 150. That ought to get me where I wanna be. Do I need to do head studs, springs and all that stuff with those? Full force doesn't have 175. They have stage 1 160s, stage 2 160s and stage 3 205. And then of course the bigger ones
