cheap ways to in prove my 7.3L

I'm looking for cheap ways to help my 7.3L get more air and get better air flow going to the right and left bank and any other ideas would be good and the only thing i have for my exhaust is a muffler and working on making it straight from 3.5 to 4 and then the last 4 foot will be y'ed out to 2 5 in straight pipes and they will be angled they both well come out at the tail lights

cold air intake will get it breathing better sounds like you got the exhaust taken care of.

diy intake is cheap and works great.... the stock intake is very restricting on 7.3's

How do you delete that and what do you replace it with.

you don't remove anything...you take the spring out...drop in a BB and replace spring...adds pressure to the spring which brings up fuel pressure... its called the FPR mod...hth

Depending on the year of yout truck, a modded IDM and the mentioned intake, DP, and exhaust. These will wake up a stock powerstroke like having a new ride, and all are cheap.
