Now what?

Dont know what to do next...coil pack, programmer or something...but Id like to get a bit more hp/trq or mpg out of this thing. So far Ive got efan, ud pulley, kn drop in, magnaflow waiting to install. Im thinking either a screamin demon or a tune? Not really looking to do rockers yet. Already have 410s on stock height tires too, so no need to re-gear. What do you guys think should be next mod? Truck has 31K miles btw.

Tune tune tune. Make sure its tuned the the mods you have already put on, that will get the most net HP out of anything.

no need for the coil pack..... you will only need to upgrade when you are on boost or nitrous. The factory one provides more than enough energy.

I agree with others tune! rockers are not that bad to install and the truck runs much more smoother and feels stronger in the upper rpms. Theres also cam regrinds, forged internals, beef up the rods, lifters and springs. Ofcoruse theres also boost

yea, I asked my mechanic about the coil and he said the same thing, the stock one is all you will need without boosting it.
