Ok, so I need to know if I am on the right track, or if I need to change my line of thinking? This is my first dmax(had a cummins before) and have some mods that I am getting ready to do when the weather breaks, still cold up here. I want to go with a built trans and efi live probably next year, when I get enough money saved. To start with I want to put HD tie rods or sleevs on my truck, then go with a down pipe, then with a fuel pump(air dog or fass). Then like I said before, build the trans then efi live.

I guess my question would be is this a good progression, or am I going about this the wrong way? Seems like everytime I have a question when I get on here I find the answer before asking. Awsome info on here. By the way, I am sooooo.... glad I went with the dmax and not the comeapart this time. My Dad and brother have the cummins and everytime I go over there, they want to get up close and personal with my truck, I just smile and let them....:rof

Yes, I was going to go with the support for both, forgot to put that on here. Also is the aftermarket centerlink worth it or jut the sleeves or HD tie rods?

PPE makes a nice straight center link, but you'll lose about 3' of turning radius. If that doesn't bother you, it'll keep the front tires pointing straight when sled pulling or drag racing. Here is a link 99-06 GM HD Series Trucks PPE Centerlink and Tie Rod sleeve kit

They can also be sold w/o the sleeves if you want the hd tie rods.

you could do EFI before a built tranny and get a tranny safe tune until it is built.. that way you have more time to learn about it and you will have your truck programed

Thanks for the info. I would like to make the truck something I could pull with or just take to the track on the weekends if I wanted to. It is my DD, just want to be able to smoke a tail fin when they pull up beside me at a red light if needed.

EFI live on a safe tune is a good idea, just need to losen the strap on the bank account before I can do anything. The other stuff I already have the "ok" on doing...lol
