turbo mods

I have a turbo with 2.5 inch down pipe, flex and exhaust. What would be the next thing for me to do to get more power. (example under drive pully, exhaust cams ...) I'm also wondering what is best between a chip and a SAFC A'pexi. I dont care about cost. Thanx.

Before anything else i would do tuning first and the apexi ISNT tuning , you need a chip or if you want to do your own tuning i have the SCT Pro Racer for sale for 750.00

Not only do you get the SCT ProRacer self tuner but you get the Raptor a very good scan tool , it comes with a chip that you tune and can set all the tune for your self the scan tool will help you get a safe tune and i will help to get you started
