If you add glasspacks or some other type of muffler your exhaust will sound like a big block gasser but why would you want to do that? It's a diesel and diesel's don't need that exhaust restriction. They need a free flowing exhaust. You'll be hindering the performance of your engine just to gain the sound of a gasser exhaust.

Is it possible to chip like a 1991 7.3, and how much does that banks turbo package cost, I have a dodge cummins with about 250hp and I think that the 91 only has about 180hp and I haul big round bales so I need the power.

No, they are mechanical so no chips.

The banks kit new is around $2500. Go on ebay or craigslist and find a used turbo kit for 1/4-1/3 of that cost.

Hot pump, custom turbo setup, custom electric fuel pump (tank to IP), cam.

Around $4000 if you ask me.

$1500 for a hot pump, I can get a better turbo to bolt up in place of my ATS (actually an Aurora 3000 from ATS) for another $1500. Electric fuel system, $250-400, cam $250.

Your not ever going to get big power out of it without a lot of money. Just keep that in mind.
