hey guys, i have a 95 chevy 3/4 ton w/ 6.5 TD and i was wondering what are some cheap mods to get a little more power. I already have put straitpipes (no muffler or catylatic converter) and have intake kit.

i heard that 6.2 heads flow better than the 6.5 ones but you might ask around

go to heathdiesel.com and get a turbo master (replaces vacuum wastgate with mechanical). marine injectors or just nozzles. GM-8 turbo not a cheap mod but good flows better

Yeah Heath are good but overpriced, i use SSDiesel when im needing bits for my 6.5,
a good cheap single mod for power on a 95 is to replace the stock E-prom chip for the 40 or 80hp one, about $300, #9 resistor for about $10 20hp.

some things I am checking out for mine are going with a larger exhost diameter and I want to check out air cleaner modifications, keep in mind more air flow more power!  Also consider a cooling system upgrade to keep from over heating.  Mine has a mechanical injector pump, I understand getting more power out of mine is as simple as a pump adjustment but I believe for yours since it is an electronic injector pump that is not the same.  But check out some of those simple changes before you get into the major stuff
