Well you already have a billet converter. So I would think a heavy duty valve body would be a good cheep way to get power to the ground. Then a set of quality gauges (isspro: fuel psi, EGT, boost) to monitor everything. Id definitly look into a programmer (not sure which is best for the older 24Vs). 5" exhaust to get rid of spent fuel (stacks look really good but thats up to you).

If ya have any left (the stuff above its crazy priced) Id look into some mild injectors. My buddy in college had a older 24V truck with standard mods including big injectors. That truck was FAST!

Good Luck

yeah, u don't have to go all billit and that in the tranny, just upgrade all the stuff that needs it, i believe it's bands anchors for them, valve body and plate and the torque converter which you already have done, i'd look into building up the trans just a bit more is all i'm sayin, a few guys on here could help ya there.
