Re: what upgrades work best or would u reccomend

Complete build and easy on the wallet are two different things....

If I'm gonna do a complete built I wouldn't be cheaping out on anything.

Start off with a budget and HP goal for the truck...

First I would do gauges.

X2 on gauges.

Maybe 6637 but not much more power and speed is going to come out of that engine without some big money. A 6 pos chip is best way to go and you are there.

Save your $$$ and build a Mustang or something..Its a 7.3 disease you'll chase till you've dumped so much $$ you'll wish you stopped at good tunes,gauges,exhuast,tranny and a 38R or some other turbo..I could be wrong??

You need a set of gauges before injectors.
