A little help here ?

Hey guys, I'm wanting your suggestions on power! I have an '03 2500 with an intake and a 3.5 cat back. where do I go from here in order of $$$ and power. I mean down to the little stuff such as the torque converter lock up wire mod. I'm new to the gassers and frankly the diesels were easy.I have plenty of mechanical experience, I just dont want to waste money on stuff like spacers. thanks alot

you could bennifit from a custom cam grind... spec'd especially for low end grunt. There are a couple places that can do this, but be sure to tell them you truck is an 03 (less tunning options), so they keep the LSA in check for a good idle.

Call these guys. Tell him your needs.

Next would be taller gears (4.56's) would compliment your needs very well.

Thanks guys, did the trans wire,
How much HP do ya suppose the fan lets loose? What do ya think of any superchargers? Do I need to let superchips know about the new camshaft assuming I do that? After how many goodies do I "need" the converter? Opinions on shorty headers? Is the '03 as much of a tuning problem as it sounds?Any one spend alot of time on their '03's here?
