BHAF isnt to expensive but wont change anything but a little more turbo wistle. Take the scilencer ring out of your turbo too.

FASS or AirDog before anything else because VP44's are cheap

FASS or Airdog/Raptor (same company I think)...Do a 100GPH lift pump or pay the extra $15 and get a 150GPH lift pump. I personally would go with a FASS...but what do I know about Airdog. They both seem like you can't really go wrong with either one of them. FASS seems a bit better built though and FASS has really good warranty :thumbsup:. After that I would do a chip of some sort (edge EZ, quad adrenaline, edge juice with attitude) IMO I would get a chip that comes with gauges too...monitoring boost, pyro, trans, etc are a good preventative mod. You can pick up a nice chip on the classifieds section here for a real good price...Some mild 40HP over RV275 injectors are a nice upgrade; RV275s are really reasonably priced injectors. There is an article on DTR somewhere that states an aftermarket exhaust and intake aren't very useful until higher HP numbers (450+ I think it was). :cbadge2: Good luck!

lift pump first and fore most! bhaf, 4" or 5" turbo back exhaust, and transmission upgrades(billet single disc and a shift kit). you can kill a stock auto with very minor power upgrades on these trucks.

The stickies at the top of the 24v performance page are a wealth of information.

Starting there would be a great first step.

if it does have a fass it should be mounted on the block or down on the frame rail.

I looked and cannot find any such item. so I think he lied to me. I will start with the air filter first, 150gph FASS fuel system, then larger exhaust/turbo, 150hp injectors, then programmers. Any info on which air filter, what brand of exhaust, what kind of turbo, or injectors are the best?

seriously man do some research. People on here are willing to help, but soon they will stop. All the questions you're asking have been asked 1000 times before. And to be honest, there is no best, its all a matter of what the person likes, with some exceptions. Trust me, you will be miles ahead if you do the reading and learn as you go.

Yea man i understand, I have been looking around but everything i read sounds good but Ive not seen anybody using anything around Northwest Arkansas. Its mostly a bunch of gassers running up and down the road. Im just trying to get as much info as i can before i buy something and end up regreting it. ive read hundreds of articles, looked at websites, etc and still have no idea about half this stuff.
