After gauges, air and exhaust, tuning, I would say fuel system upgrades and regulated return. If you already have those, I would consider medium oil Stealth, Pulse or Cardiac Arrest if it is available.

Re: Best mod for the money

Absolute best bang for the buck as far as HP goes would be to get a set of bigger injectors, but you'll be about double your figure. Nozzles on stock AD's are only good for around 50hp at the tires +/-. I'd get DDP nozzles if you are going that route.

Besides a fuel system you already have as much of the inexpensive bolt on stuff. Next step for HP is bigger ticket items like injectors and oil and turbos.

There isn't one. Because everything you buy requires 3 supporting mods for it run worth a crap.

Don't kid yourself into thinking you can spend 1K and be done


Honestly, if I had a K and it to do all over again I would save it and put it toward injectors, turbo or fuel system.

Fuel system is kind of a caveat to what I said, you can do it and see benefits on a bone stock truck.

That's probably what I'd do, full fuel system from the tank forward. ITP regulated return, get rid of the bowl, do the intank mods etc etc etc etc etc

So what is Sheid doing to the stock injectors for $1200 dollars. There used to be a truck around here that had it done and it smoked like a train but I don't know about the power.
