Alright I just bought this 06 dodge with a pusher pump, super phat shaft 62 turbo, ats stage 4 trans, kn cold air, smarty, and edge with att. My question is what should i do next? I want a good amount of power and reliability plus its a daily driver so fuel mileage is a must. My plan is to remove the edge and get a tst. What else should i do?

What to do?

might want to check the sticky thread at the top of this forum before installing a TST and melting your pistons.
Sell the EDGE. Forget the TST as there is only minimal gain when run with the SMARTY and get an MP8 for fuel pressure. Be careful with the MP8 and I'd stay 1/2 turn or less as it will really increae your pressure and also kill injectors if run turned up all the time. Be moderate with your power adders unless you want to be serious for a particular a-hole but still keep that MP-8 at around 1/2 turn,... been there and done that. It blew the plug out of a brand new cp3 so I know from where I speak on this.

Honestly, the MP8 or any pressure box should never be used unless you wanting to mess around i.e. race or go to the strip, etc.....

You can if you want a little power, but it's only a turn dial so yeah, when you're ready to rock out your truck turn it up.

thanks for the advice on the tst. what about some 90 hp injectors and an arson 3, would this be a good next step? what about an intake/ exhaust manifold? are they worth the money?
Anytime you can get more airflow to each cylinder it's worth the money. These motors are not pricey so yeah, it's better to be safe than sorry.

I would recommend those for sure. Shane at Wicked builds an awesome cp3. He has also started selling tips for injectors so you might ck him as well as Extrude Hone. I never ran his tips but I can't imagine them not being good as he is careful on everything I've seen to make sure things work right.

He also has an exh manifold that I will probably buy that is more reasonably priced and many guys are running it with good result. On the intake,... personally I'm going to go with a Banks 3 1/2 and their IC. They sell it in combination and it has a hard pipe between the IC and the intake which I like instead of so much hose that can go wrong at high hp. In combination they are very well priced unlike most of their stuff and the IC flows considerably more than OEM. Many don't realize that their IC can be a weak link and while it still works when they go from a stock 35psi to 70psi they develope pin hole leaks and they don't know that unless they take it off and have it ck'd and meanwhile they are suffering the result of a product that's NOT built to handle what they're doing with it. Live and learn.

Thanks for all the advice guys! My truck is going to be a dd that will never see the track but will be used to spank some trucks and cars on the road. I think i am going to get the mp8, some 90 hp injectors, arson III, cfm + intake, and ats three piece exhaust. Ill see how i like the power that makes and decide where to go from there. Thanks again guys!

You said 3pc exhaust manifold which is a 2nd gen set up. If you do that swap you have to change the exhaust down pipe, intercooler pipe, and intake. Your better off getting the ATS 2pc manifold for our 3rd gen trucks that's if you are just wanting to run a
single turbo for now.

Stay away from the cfm intake. A lot of guys have split them open. Not good.

Go with the 2nd gen exh manifold & downpipe. Yes you have a few more things to buy but you can sell your 3rd gen stuff. The 2nd gen setup runs cooler egts and flows better. Also it sounds a lot better.
