Baby Swamps???

My wife hates driving my truck- she say's it's a "dog". It's a firewood getter, dump hauler, pulls 10k occasionally. I don't want to get a newer truck or switch to a cummins or whatever. I just want a little more power. I am not looking to set record quarter mile times or dump a ton of money into this thing. Would these Baby Swamps with a custom tuned chip be the way to go? Truck has a Banks Git Kit on it that consists of a Banks ottomind chip and downpipe. The chip was on truck when I bought it- def not my choice.

I was just reading about them on their site and it says they run fine on an otherwise stock setup (hpop, mech fuel) but rec a downpipe (3"). They sound like a good deal and if the custom chip is available for the $300, an even better deal?
Bring on the snow please so I can start paying for all of this....

Electric fuel no, ANY injector upgrade pretty much requires a hpop upgrade to at least a sd 17* pump, the stock 15 is sh!t

Will the 17 sd pump work on a 1995 7.3?

No, needs modification for the anti-drainback, and the baby swamps are what 120-140 cc? Not big enough over my stock ones to consider using them, my stock hpop barely keeps up and throws a code every time I get on it and keep in the throttle
