fuel plate, some kind of cold air intake, 4k governor spring kit (recommended you get 60 lb valve springs with the kit), then spend some time tuning your fuel pump right
If your talking about what kind of trucks we like i say 12 valve obviously, extended cab, long bed, 4x4 and manual tranny.
now if you talking about things to look out for check the front end over real well, 12 valves tend to tear up bushings and components in the front. Ask if the killer dowel pin has been taken care of, if the guy selling it doesn't know what that is it hasn't been addressed. Shaft play in the turbo. Check if the break off bolts on the injection pump are still there, if not the previous owner has done some pump tuning and you don't know if he f'd something up or if he made the thing fly down the road, could go either way.
