Shop around man, nothing wrong with buying used parts on a low budget build. 1k dollars can still get you a nice used hci set up.

In all honesty I would buy all those parts from summit. They have all of that and usually a little cheaper from what I've seen

According to an article I saw you could get a significant gain with an off road mid pipe.

Why not just get the abaco maf that Trojan recommends. You can program it for any size yourself and by the time you add up the cost of the maf you're getting and the cost of a tune it would be roughly the same price. If you ever upgrade or need to change injector size you won't need another tune or maf, you can just reprogram the abaco.

the maf is part of the conversion package and there is no extra charge for tuning it to 24 lb

Re: first engine mods

Seriously, I would stash the 1k and add to it until I could afford the HCI kit.That will make the largest HP increase and being the most expensive it is the hardest mod to save up for and purchase. You are already a good ways toward the cost, so get busy in the evenings and on the weekends earning that spare cash to complete the purchase.

That will definitely affect your earning power for the short term, but it should pay off in the long term.
