First you can do a turbo back exhaust, then I would suggest getting a custom 6 position chip, do you have the edge monitor or the old evolution? After the chip it gets a little expensive because you will be getting into motor work like injectors and a turbo. What year truck?

I knew I forgot that, if you have the cold air FIPK K&N it won't cause a problem but if you run the stock K&N filter replacement then you run a chance of "dusting your motor" the filter doesn't seal all the way when in the stock air box causing dust and debris to enter the intake pipe which leads to the turbo. If your wanting to drop a good deal of $ on your truck let me know and I can set you up with some good local diesel shops.

Lose the edge unless you want to spend money fixing stuff instead of performance. Theres a bunch of little tricks that help performance and economy but its not going to be a real seat of the pants rush. You will make a little more power pretty cheap but you will also see better economy cuz your using less throttle to move the truck the same speed. Pm me and I can help ya out with it more, I live in heber too if you local we might be able to meet up and discuss some stuff over a brewsky or somethin.

well i would def take off that edge and get yourself a custom tuned chip.. it will perform way better... also a set of regular analog gauges... if you dont have it get yourself a turbo back exhaust as well...
