    Hi,

    I'm from Australia and I'm after some info/advice on what I should do next. I have a 2009 6.7 ram 2500 I have already done a 4" exhaust, DPF & EGR delete, S&B intake and a XRT pro tuner. What would be the next step? I have been looking at intake horns, turbos and possibly changing the tuner?

    Thanks

    What do you think about doing a grid heater delete, is it worth it?

    Deleting the grid heater and upgrading the intake horn will definitely assist airflow. Upgrading to a Fass or Air Dog fuel pump would be good options to add to the list.

    What are your overall goals?

    Yeah thanks I have been looking at a airdog system as well. I want to get as much power as I can reliably without adversely effecting towing as I do a lot towing.

    You need to beef up the trans before adding too much power. Revmax and Suncoast make some food stuff.

    I don't tow a lot but I do pull our camper several times a year. And it's a my daily driver so it has to stay reliable. Currently the truck is basically stock except for being deleted and tuned. Here's my build plan once I have money to do so...

    Trans upgrades, RevMax since they are local
    Fuel pump, I'm looking at the Fass 150.
    Upgrade turbo with a 2nd gen style manifold.
    Then maybe stock+ injectors when needed.

    What tuner do you guys recommend? I have a XRT pro at the moment but would like something that can be changed on the fly

    Turbo + Efi-live then start looking at adding more fuel.
