what setup you have in there now? it wont make a huge difference... but it isnt a bad thing to do if you have 200 burning a hole in your pocket. Mine was done thru innovative. add a shot of nitrous, that will put you in the 12s.

2006 F250 CCSB

Thanks to FCDP and Innovative Diesel

I did mine before I had the mods in red, and it really helped with my turbo lag, which wasn't all that bad to begin with. It's not so much a power upgade, and I think most places come out and say it's not a power adder. I never put mine on the strip, but I noticed a HUGE difference day to day...so much fun! Also saw a 2mpg increase on winter blend fuel. Don't know what I picked up with regular diesel, I haven't driven the truck since Feb, or with the new mods. Maybe this month.

2015 F-350 6.7L, CCSB, SRW, FX-4

2004 F-350 6.0L SRW XLT Sport, Ex cab, SB, FX4-Gone after 10 years as original owner


There are very few personal problems that can't be solved by the proper application of high explosives!
