hmm not to much you can do for $500 to those items. you could put in a full transgo or that billet wheel from sdp but you will be waiting for the wheel so better to do the transgo

Buy an LBZ regulator for your CP3 because it will increase your line pressure. Its like $150.

Caveat.....You will need to modify some fields in your fuel tables to make it run right.

Just let your tuner know and he should be able to adjust it for you.

Have fun putting it in. I just did it and it sucks a big fat one. Put the $150 towards the FPR and the rest towards traction bars or a centerlink

Hell yeah it's worth it. That extra couple thousand psi of rail pressure is isn't going to be felt by the seat of your pants but it'll help track times with some tuning...

You could always put that extra $500 in to Scotts billett compressor wheel he just started selling for the LB7's IHI turbo. $450 and you already got the turbo out. Just drop it in and get quicker spool up and more boost right there!!

You already got sleeves, a centerlink and I/P arm braces? With those you could drop the T-bars and cut some good 60 ft times in 4wd...

True I could but no need for p/i braces with my lift the way its designed there a waste of money as far as the center link is rather keep my driveablity and tire ware to the low all tho I have looked into it but pointless lol if I wanted a drag truck id cut 1500 pounds off and drop it on stock size wheels instead of 35s

I think an awesome upgrade that fits right in the budget would be some RDL uppipes. Nows the time if ever...
