Personally, this is what I would do. Get gages. I would then upgrade to stage 1 injectors, (either new, or rebuilds) and replace the the stock 15* HPOP with a 17* one from a SD truck. That should give you better power across the spectrum, and to my knowledge, neither upgrade will hurt fuel efficiency.

Oh, and personally, I'd ditch the Edge EZ chip, and get either a TS or TW custom tuned chip for your truck.

As you can see from my signature, these are mods that I have planned for my own truck. (among a few others)

I would stick to fuel upgrades, the bottles can get expensive to refill. I also would switch over to a custom tuned chip either with the setup you currently have, or if you do go put nitrous or propane on the truck so the motor is tuned for it and does not end up with a rod sticking out of the block.

look at DIY injectors. they are good and cheaper, but if you want some really bad azz ones, go to full force diesel. Ryan Casserly build the dam best around hands down.

Oh, and yeah, ditch the edge. it will burn the trans up. you will see major major improvement over the edge with the TW or TS chip.

A good set of injectors can be got for a little over $500... they wont be new because its just a DIY kit, but in my opinion unless your life is at the track their is no need to NEW ones... My stage 1's give me tranny all it can handle, and with a custom tuned chip you have the freedom of controlling the injectors pretty much.... You can throw 25-125 horsepower at it with the turn of a knob!

you can get a Tony Wildman Chip from a vendor (Stealth) on here, or directly from him at www.totaldieselperformance.com.

If you want a DP tuner you can get them directly, they are a vendor here as well.

I have a TW in my OBS, and my brother has a DP-tuner, both are great.
