Hello all. I want to get every ones opinion on how I should do my next mods. I have a few things I want to get done but don't know where to start. I'd like to know what order I should do these as well. Thanks. All prices are installed.

Goerend TC & VB- $2500
Smarty - $685
Gauges- $350
Bodyguard FR & RR Replacements- $1700
Anything else ????- $xxx

Of course I'll need to save :$:. Just wanting to know what to save for & when. Much appreciated guys & gals!!!

With more fuel, comes more air! While you're under there and you have sacks of cash, might as well do turbos, yes I mean plural.

Why put any un-needed wear and tear on the trans internals that will shorten it's life? Get the trans taken care of before power and then you will get the maximum life out of the clutch packs that Dodge sold you.

Slip them a few times, and then upgrade will just cost you performance and life in the long run

Yeah I agree. Don't want to harm the delicate tranny for sure.

How about the Fr & RR replacements. I want some protection from those non-drivin fools out there.

it would be cheaper to put a fass on than buy a pump. plus if you tear you tranny from too much power it could cost you a lot more in the long run. play it safe and listen to other peoples problems and gain some wisdom. any time you add power there is going to be a weak link. in our cases it's usually expensive.
