Coolant bypass Filter.

Oil bypass filter.

4" straight line, unless there is a better idea on exhaust.

SCT. Duuu...

some kind of fuel upgrade or mod..... pump, Type of fuel.....

4" lift. Im still researching which one....? and some wheels....

Fitch catalyst.

MASSIVE train horn system.

Gale Banks "Techni-CoolerŪ Intercooler System"

Keep stock filter unless there is a filter that filters contaminants better with the same or better flow....

Synthetic oils in diffs. but What...???

Better stronger Torque converter.

I would like to do injectors lifters pistons.... bla bla bla..... the more intense stuff..... but that wont be for a long long time.

If your going to throw that much money into it, I would go ahead and get a cold air intake. I noticed a big difference when I put mine on. But otherwise, that sounds like a great plan you have

From what ive heard the banks IC is a waste, plus, i would never put anything with the banks name on my truck. Everything else sounds like a winner though.

Thats a long list and the thing I have a hard time believing is that I have 8.5 of the same mods on my truck.

wow thats funny. At least my ideas aren't all stupid. ha ha

I will also be doing the zoodad mod..... but with a twist... I will design it so that it will funnel straight to the air filter opening that will provide even more forced induction. It with slits on the bottom to allow drainage. And it will have the feature of opening and closing. I will close it during the winter.

and a screen too...

I don't know if I would go that far. As far as I've read, the Banks IC is pretty good and worth it if you're doing a lot of power-adding mods and a lot of towing in the desert. Banks has burned a lot of people with their programming b/c it doesn't tune the tranny and their products are expensive. But if you can get a good deal on an IC, I would do it! I would trust the Banks over the Spearco at this point with pictures I've seen lately of the Spearco blowing the endtanks at 50 psi.

Thanks for the comment

Towing once every 2 months is just on average. And the loads very. I dont live in the desert.

I didnt know Sperco blew at 50. wow. What can the banks and stock go up too???

I think that the intercoolers vary in what psi they can withstand, obviously the stock IC with it's plastic ends doesn't hold up to much over stock. The Spearco IC's were supposed to be rated to 100+ psi, but they've been having a few incidents where they're blowing around 50 psi. I'm not sure what Banks rates their's as, but it's got to be around 100 psi also.

I would say that if you're not towing a lot in hotter areas, an upgraded intercooler is probably going to be a waste of time and money. If you really want to cool the EGT's, just get an aftermarket exhaust and delete the EGR system and it'll cool way down!!
