$2000 to spend on upgrades, which ones would be the best??

I have the 300hp(60 HP) injectors, a 8" cold air intake, and 4" exhaust. What would be the best add ons for my money? I was thinking of a boost fooler with the J hook for about $120 and maybe an Edge, Banks or XZT controller??

Thanks for any and all input!

guages, fuel system, tranny/clutch, all that stuff, in that order, would be the way to go in my opinion..

since you mentioned a j hook im going to take it that you have a auto . so first things first gauges , then i would do a valve body and converter if the the trans is fresh . you can take it to your local tranny shop and have the do a pressure check on it to see if theres any internal bleed by on aany of the seals. to make sure that your trans is healthy enough for the added stress the valve body will put on the seals

Throw a fass fuel system on there, a j hook and a module. id either go with quadzilla or edge. Both are great but quads new stuff is updateable.

If you get the XZT+ module then you do not need to purchase a boost fooler. The XZT+ does boost fooling even in the "off" position.

Guages, fuel system, box, and a j-hook (if you have an auto). If you're not broke at that point look for clutch/ tranny mods.
