EFI Live Autocal or new exhaust

I bought my pickup a month ago with all the things listed in my sig. I will have money after Christmas and I am wondering what I should do first?

I noticed you will be painting it, I personally am not a fan of the hunter green myself, have you decided on a color?

Also I would suggest mods in this order.

1. EFI Live w/autocal
2. Airdog II, raptor or fass lift pump
3. Edge insight CTS (gauges)
4. Patience and money

I will more than likely paint it dark chevy blue but that won't be for a while. I am still in school so money is an issue but I want a different chip for sure because the Cortex sucks and EFI Live seems the way to go.

I would get gauges before a lift pump... I've always considered gauges as a must when tuning. Almost like a package deal

Sounds good, I know you mean, I had to sacrifice quite a bit for college, but thanks to Gods good provision, my wife and I both graduated debt free and have paid cash for everything we own. It just takes time and patience, hard work, and
A proper relationship with your savior and creator.

Also it is a great idea to get gauges, as posted earlier, and I suggest gettin them
As soon as your budget allows, however with a good tune from
Kory you will have nothing to be worried about. However a lift pump
Will help save your entire fuel system, which is by far more important then gauges, expecially on an LB7.

Thanks!

If you can afford it, I would look up mrmanners with synthetic
Motorsports on here, he is selling exactly what you are looking for, (dap 5 w/autocal for $625 but I believe tr sale ends tomorrow. Great deal though so I you can swing it jump on it!

I looked but I don't think I'll go through them because I'm pretty sure I want to have Idaho Rob's tuning. Seems from what I've read is a lot of guys like him.
