Back into the powerstroke scene; first OBS though. MODS!!
Alright fellas. This is my fourth diesel, second powerstroke, first automatic diesel. I'm a FIRM believer in straight drive diesels (for my own reasons) but I happen to run across a crazy deal on my new OBS, so even though it's an automatic I couldn't resist.
It's a '97 extended cab, long bed, automatic 7.3. It's got a 6" suspension lift and 33" tires right now, and I plan to do the following
Stage 1 or II sticks
TW custom tunes
5" exhaust or some stacks (undecided)
Something with the auto trans.. prolly VB and TC? (input on brands and vendors...)
I'm not gonna go absolutely nutz, just a few things to really wake the truck up for pulling power and economy. What do you guys think of that list? Since this is my first OBS and I've been outta PSD's for a while now, I"m a touch rusty.
I know these trucks come with weaker hpops; but considering my mods, I think think thats a big deal?
I know these trucks have.... wait... I cant remember the name. But they have the noiser but more powerful injectors as opposed to the NBS, but I suppose that doesn't matter since I'm upgrading them anyways.
And thats about all I know. All input and advice is appreciated!
