Advice on next step

My sig covers the basics, nothing too overboard, yet.

Looking at doing the following:

Edge gone for EFI Live, need advice on a company THAT YOU GUYS have used and have great reviews on.

Headstuds

60 lb valve springs

injectors, Need some advice on what i would truly need, the boys in the garage always think i need way more than i do.

lastly the least favorite part on jsut about any of our trucks, the tranny.

I know the big ones ats suncoast, and have been reviewing garmon a bit. I have also read some threads on a 48RE conversion ?!?!? I'm a bit new to anything PAST the bolt on out of the box stuff so here's my driving facts, and wants.

It IS a daily driver, i do go off road, not like mud bogs but she does work in the wider trails around here. I do haul but regularly nothing than my 17' with some four wheelers and dead animals on it. I am looking for LONG LASTING but still enough power to have fun with, well a little more fun than I am now, and not needing to truly worry about getting on it a bit more from time to time.

Lastly long hauls, of my entire life picked up and moved every 2-4 years, due to the military. SO any advice or recommendations on brands, shops, and anything of the likes or recommendations on other parts to add or nix, Ill be waiting.

Thanks in advance.

I would call up cumminstuner

And there's nothing wrong with the valve springs to need to change them

The head studs would be a good idea as for the trans that's where you better start saving get a good converter maybe a deep pan and I wouldn't mess with anything but a co-pilot from ats for trans control

Like stated before get a good converter for it and a co-pilot and it should hold for a long time unless you start going crazy with more power and beating on it a lot

Looks like your making the swing to EFI Live man good for you. I remember talking to you on the phone or via text awhile back. You do not need injectors. You are limited by air not fuel. Air before fuel. Look into a RevMax 550 for your trans.
