Default 12v upgrades

Might buy a 1995 ram 2500 with the 12v cummins. I have exuast, wheeels and tires for it, but what are some good first upgrades to do to it that won't break the bank?

grind your plate to a #100 or #0, everything in my signature was free... and it rolled 341,8hp on the dyno !

the exhaust was there when i got it, so i guess you'll be near to equal to me, except mine came with a 230 pump since it's a EURO Cummins

is it a Manual or Auto ?

let's not forget, if you like a whistle from your Turbo... remove the silencer ring and baffle between your fender and airbox

i had a 160 pump on my truck when i first put the 12v, i laid down 150hp and put a 0 plate in, it laid down 280hp for nothing. but ur stock auto wont hold 280hp, with out a good TC (torue converter)

another free mod u can do would be a TC lock up switch.

First check your KDP and do it if it's not done, Won't make any more power but it may save you from major engine damage
