bd steering stabilizer bar
5x12 injectors if you can afford them ok if you cant
4k gov springs 3k will do just fine and you dont have to have valve springs that way
a fuel plate FF of your choice. less than a #10 IMO -sell ya a #6???-
boost elbow (stock turbo?)
exhaust
intake
tune your AFC

yeah from what ive been reading these trans dont like much more power then what its aleady taking stock! prob goin to invest in a nice converter and vb! since the trans is new id rather not have to rebuild it when i can avoid it.. its a new stock turbo.. you dont think a #10 plate would be to much with a 4kgsk? for the stock trans i have a bhaf got it today orderes guages and a 4" exhaust and boost elbo so i want to do the fuel plate next and see how it does what do you think?..

100 will give you more fuel but if you tow alot and have a stock charger go with the 10

Be careful what you wish for on the tranny...can't remember who, or what forum (might have been this one) but someone told me that a TC/VB probably wouldn't be enough...they were right. My tranny had been a brand new rebuild about 8 months before I got the truck. Bone stock, never been tampered with. I put a TC/VB in it, tuned the AFC, ground the fuel plate, and installed a set of 4k gov springs. About 4 months later, I had the truck back to get the tranny rebuilt, all the clutches were gone. I didn't have the money up front to do it all, but it would have been a lot easier if I had. The TC/VB alone didn't end up saving my tranny any.

yeah im debating on weather i should even do many power mods untill i build the tranny.. you guys think
intake, exhaust, 4k,slide the stock plate all the way forward with a boost elbo would be much? i plan on pushing snow this winter too so i dont want to be melting my trans in the process! just keep it simple until summer rolls around

a little off subject but for some reason my parking lights both front corners and tail light and becon light and the interion dash lights! stoped working on my today! have no idea why all wireing and fuse's look good, they just stoped workin any idea? < should i post a new thread?

drivers side front frame horn....on the inside...by the motor just in front of the driverside front tire.... there is the wiring harness... there is a little plastic clip that holds the harness to the frame. once that clip breaks it rubs on the frame. i had the exact same thing happen to me... finaly found it... re sodered the wires and shring wraped them. havnt had the issue since. hope this helps.
