What should I do next

Well, I'm staying in a 6-0 for now. Haven't found a replacement truck for the one that was wrecked, but I'm on the lookout.

My Harley is getting studded and should be back next week. Already has the blue fuel pressure spring, 58v FICM, I'll be going with a studded looney tune when I get it back. This summer I'll be doing injectors and turbo, nothing big, probably just 155's. But in the mean time, what's next? Any ideas?

What's the goal? Towing, Hot Rod, 4wheeler, or Daily Driver?

The truck is my daily driver, it MAY tow my fifth wheel. But I'm looking for drivability and performance

My vote is for the Gryphon FICM programmer, this will allow you to load in the Atlas 80 or Hercules for performance, then switch to the Econ or Atlas 40 for towing.

This programmer can also be used to roll back your ECM strategy to a better one.
