What are the easiest low cost performance upgrades I can do on my 96 12 valve to hop it up and still drive and pull trailer with it everyday? Just looking for a start........Thanks.

I have a 95 12valve and have installed a 0 plate which it self made a big difference. have installed 350hp marine injectors big difference on horsepower. I got the fuel plate off ebay for $29.95 and injectors came from local diesel shop for $480.00. the next thing i will be doing is advance the timing and fix the KDP

Here's a good list to start you off:

KDP fix.  It's $100 and about 8 hours of work, but it saves you the cost of a rebuild (roughly $6000).

BHAF from Napa Auto.  Cheap way to get the engine to filter more air.  I recommend you buy an outer cover for it.

Gauges for EGT and auto trans temp at a minimum.  This is a no brainer.

New intake manifold.  This lets the engine work less to get more air.

"0" fuel plate and injectors like mentioned above.

I will be fixing the KDP and advancing the timing on my cummins this weekend. I have read several forums on the timing advancement as being a big help in the power and fuel department
