Nailed it... Great list, pick from the above

Personally, i would go with the BTS VB. If your tranny is stock, the tunes are going to get to it sooner or later.

Save it so you can replace that turbo when it goes boom.

Re: 400 bucks to spend

400$ i would spend on
either a di reg return a dinofuel alternatives reg return (200$) or thier cck line.
they also sell hpx lines.
08 rear diff cover if your not a dually
could do a john woods, or bts vb..or a sonnax spring kit.
coolant filter from dieselsite is nice, they also do vb.
a v10 or trucool makes for a good tranny cooler as well.

id prob get a
rr combo with the hpx line from dinofuel, or just the cck and add the reg later
the 08 rear diff cover, coolant filter, and a sonnax spring kit

2001 cup holder ,T500, MAX AC ASSIST AC mod, Diy Twin tymar, TS chip, Powerslots & Hawk pads, ford AIC, ..... with big fat want to list.

Re: 400 bucks to spend

no need to the valve body, i have a 6 speed. Already have the 6.0 intercooler. I was thinking a regulated return, but i havent seen any for less that 400....is the dinofuel one cheaper? where can i find these? I was gonna get hpx and frx(cck), but i do plan on getting a regulated return sometime, so unless i can reuse the cck i dont really wanna spend the money on it if its just gonna be something for now.

Re: 400 bucks to spend

DIY or DI RR would be a good one and a real cheap one with this mod is your intank mods to compliment the fuel system upgrade. This is another DIY mod or buy the kit, 25.00 to 150.00 with prepump filter and hardware. ITP kits are nice.
