Default 98 ram 5.2 What mod to do next

Hey everyone having some problems deciding what mods to do next, so far here is what engine mods I have so far. Spectra cold air intake, ported and polished throttle body, Hughes air gap intake manifold, 180 T stat, Electric fan, JBA headers, Magnaflow Y pipe, Flow Master 10 series. Super chips Programmer. I am trying to decide on the best cam and 1.6 roller rocker upgrade. I am also wondering about upgrading the throttle body and the injectors and and adjustable fuel psi regulator. All info is greatly appreciated to point me in the right direction.Shea

Try looking into a 1.7 rocker arm instead of the 1.6 it is supposed to help alot in fooling the computer into thinking you have a slightly bigger cam. just what ive heard

Step 1 - pull 318 and put in 360 at minimum (or 408).

318 was never a good heavy vehicle engine. Its a short stroke engine, makes for a good revver. 360 is a longer stroke engine designed with bigger mains than the 273-318-340 because it was designed for trucks and heavy ass C bodies.

I am planning on building a 408 strocker, but that wont be till next year. the mods I use now will be installed into that motor. I also heared its hard to run 1.7 rockers with an aftermarket cam.
