you're smart if you spend your money on your gauges first. Sounds like you're on the right track. If your truck is 05 or newer you should have a factory boost gauge, some say its not the most accurate, but according to my quad commander mine is. You definately need a EGT and a tranny temp gauge. I love my commander, gives you everything you need in one neat little package as far as your gauges go. If you want to save a few bucks I'd suggest EGT and Tranny temp analog gauges on with an A pillar mount. Next I'd also splurge for a turbo back exhaust, 4" 409SS, pick your brand. I love my MBRP, but there are others just as good I suppose. It will help bring those EGT's down a bit when you chip... Now for the really fun stuff. A custom tuned SCT is the only way to go IMO. I had a superchips on my last truck, it wasn't bad at all. Made decent power. But I just bought my SCT from DJ's and let me tell you its night and day! For about the same amount of money too. Trust me on this one. You owe it to yourself to try it. Hope this helps and good luck!
