Basically title says it all, whats the best thing for my stock 2003 Ford f250 crew cab 6.0 powerstroke diesel with the fx4 lariat package?

What i want is this truck to go FAST, but not harm the engine... i want it to outdrag my friends but would like it to last me the next 10 years. its got 160,000 miles... and i wanna know, what would you do to this truck? what would you ad to make this truck last forever?

Also, best sound system for this truck? Subs, amps? whats the best out there?

Welcome to the org!!

I'd start with an MBRP turbo back exhaust, SCT X3 programmer, intake, upper intake, intercooler. Maybe an EGR delete and studs at that point.

I like Alpine head units, speakers and 4 channel amps. Sub wise I would go with a custom enclosure to fit behind the rear seats. MTX or Alpine subs are fine. I'm thinking of running a single 10, but not up top on my priority list.

I'm sure the guys will have a good idea for performance as well.

First, get an exhaust. Gut or remove the cat (if your state doesn't do emissions testing) 4" is plenty unless you want the lower rumble of a 5" or plan on making 500+ hp
As far as tuning, stay away from the 'popular' tuners: you know what I'm talking about
The ONLY way to go with your 6.0 is SCT Custom tunes.... you will NOT be disappointed!

Audio: personal choice, budget, so many determining factors... IMHO
Other people will be by soon with more advice.


Welcome to the addiction!!!!

gauges, SCT with custom tunes, egr delete, ARP headstuds, and a 4" straight pipe exhaust..... that should set you up pretty good... if you need any prices just let me know

Asfar as systems go. Id go for a Rockford Fosgate brand. They can go thro alot of stuff and still work great, they last forever. They are can be expensive but you will get your moneys worth out of it. For your truck id go 15 or bigger. I had a ranger with a single 15 Rockford Fosgate and i sounded great, nice clean sound, pounds very well. Heres their site. Rockford Fosgate® - Home
