LBZ basic mod list

I am fairly new to the diesel scene and trying to learn step by step. I havent posted much here because iv been trying to read up so I dont sound like a complete idiot! Thanks for any input!

What does everyone do as far as basic " performance " mods as in not spending more than $600 one single mod?

This is what I have come up with and will be getting soon..

1. EGR block/ delete
2. PCV reroute
3. Transgo shift kit
4. fuel rail plug
5. lift pump.. air dog 160
6. EFI Live dsp 5 ( Idaho Rob )

Im sure im forgetting somethings but thats what im looking at getting here soon. If theres other more important things to get that should be done first please let me know. Thanks!

You've got a pretty good list there... I would add some gauges as well though and you are gonna want some exhaust and a down pipe to complete your basic mods

Most 06's don't need the fuel rail plug. I'd add tie rod sleeves, cognito braces, and a transfer case pump rub kit to your list too.

We sell all those parts and can put you together a great package price. Let me know and I'll get you some prices!!

BTW, your truck looks great!!

Thanks man I sent you a PM.

I already have EFI live with dsp 5 switch but I have no clue who tuned it. But at WOT on stage 5 "race" I throw a low rail pressure code is the only reason i put the fuel rail plug.

My tunes consist of.. as far as I was told anyways

1. "stock"
2. "Tow"
3. "street"
4. "smoke"... I know, I know please dont hate I did not do these tunes
5. "race"

Im going to get it redone with Idaho robs tunes
