Gauges 1st, then look for more power. Welcome to the 1st gen club. Plus what trans do you have. A auto won't handle much in stock form.

As said gauges, egt, boost,fuel pressure then go to work on the IP full fuel screw,smoke screw etc. When you do that you will need more air so time for BHAF, 4 in.exhaust and 14 or 16 cm turbine housing and 60mm compressor upgrade or a different turbo. Then its time for a TransGo TFOD kit and a good torque convertor and then upgrade injectors. As you can see its a slippery slope and once started seldom ends, but its a fun trip...........Bill

you can get alot of power out of these pumps but if you dont get gauges alot of things can go wrong. You could melt your pistons, your 2 thousand dollar motor could run away and live off its own oil until it turns into shrapnel. Dont be a cheap bastard get some gauges and then have some fun

EGT gauge, boost, fuel psi, and trans temp won't hurt either.
