i was thinking the dual fueler system and a cam upgrade would you recommend turbo and intercooler upgrade before that?

studs are just a good idea once you start up grading everything else no matter what engine it is thats my personal opinion. And I think at least an intercooler upgrade keep your egt's lower. Talking about that do you have gauges to monitor egt's, tranny temp, and boost those are the 3 main ones to keep an eye on

What did you have to do conversion wise?

no i dont have guages as yet im having a hard time finding a decent Pillar Pod for the RHS, Conversion wise had to make the truck Right Hand Drive so the engine had to be moved over a bit, new dash new trims, new mirrored image steering box all the pedals moved etc etc a

Defiantly get gauges and everything associated you dont want to overheat especially if its running on a tune
