I have everything on my truck in my sig. THe smarty is tnt loaded, my question is what should my next step be, injectors, cp3 upgrade, or turbo. WHich one first to do the most good, bty my truck has 175,000 on it, injectors show signs of wear, haze and a lil miss at idle every once i awhile. whats my best bet????:confused013:

IMO, get the Turbo out of the way. If you plan on adding fuel, your going to need it. What size injectors do you have in mind?

i say clutch if you dont have then up grade you cp3 then injectors

i did box,clutch,turbo,cp3 and injectors at the same time then went to a dd, sold the turbo looking for new so thats the order i went

i know you cant run the highest setting on the smarty or probably any thing really past level five with out draining the rail

10-4, buy once. With that said, you'll need to upgrade to a modded CP3 to run those to there potential.
