My father took my truck down to have it a tire put on it, the whole front end is fudged.. so I'll be getting ball joints and everything else done to the front end. Looks like things are moving smoothly

You need to restructure your path...
Get it running, make certain fuel pressure is adequate.
You need gauges & lift pump as a priority stage 1.

Once everything is running as designed, move to performance upgrades.

I wouldn't worry about a "upgraded" 5 speed. I would put in a G56 before I did that.

Also I would leave the stock radiator and intercooler in place as they can handle the power you are planning on adding to it.

@storming08, thank you for pointing that mistake out for me, that was supposed to be in stage 1, and have the quadzilla in stage 2. Simple error ?

I'll get a front end price by the end of the day, I'm sure it'll be $1,000+
My other question, with the 62/65/14 it will give me the DD I want, however with 150 sticks, will I be able to smoke out a entire street, or should I upgrade to a bigger exaught housing?

I would leave the exhaust housing alone. It will smoke till the turbo lights. You should be able to do the front end for about a 1/3 of the price if you do it yourself. Should be able to do the whole front end yourself. It will take about a day to get it done if you replace it all.

Thanks for your humor, I'm already aware of the fact i look young, I was also slightly drunk in that picture ? I cleaned out there entire fridge, it just sits on there back porch. It was nice and cool there that time of year. They Said someone probably should. So I went ham, from 12-4. There all light nasty beer. But I was rolling pretty good.

I'm well aware of everything that needs to be done with this truck. Before I dump money into it. I ain't scared to be oil field trash and power threw it. Then upgrade my damn dodge. I'll get it done, and this forum will build in time I promise.
