mod help

I am new to the diesel world they have always interested me and i just bought my first truck not to long ago. it is a 96 psd with a 5 speed i like the way this body style looks like. I am thinking about an edge evolution and juice with 160cc injectors and dual 5in stacks. the truck already has a k&n cold air intake on it. any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I plan on pulling the truck at local truck pulls. thanks

Graham,
First off welcome to the Org...

my suggestion is ditch the idea of the edge... esp if your going to run larger injectors... the edge is tuned for stock injectors.. for those 160CC your going to need a custom tuned chip to get its full potential...

so here are my suggestions

TW custom tuned chip
Gauges (boost and pyro)

also suggest taking off the K&N.. it is known to dust the turbo.... DIY or S&B is a better choice

let me know if you need any prices or more info

-Raul

I ditched the filter and put a NAPA 6637 on the K&N tube, works great.

jethro, i have the same set up with the k&n and it works fine, just keep it oiled and you won't have problems with the dust
