1st Gen 7.3 powerstroke performance

Hey, about 1 month ago i picked up my first diesel. A 94 F350 4x4 longbox crewcab 7.3 powerstroke turbo diesel zf 5spd, 4.10s posi. Ive done a few mods to it already... 3" down tube, 4" all stainless magnaflow w/ 6" ss tip, muffler delete, a pillar guages(boost, EGT, and oil pressure) and a LUK clutch and flywheel

Now my question is... I want MORE POWER! Ive been looking into getting a KNN cold air intake very soon, also a a chip. Egde evolution... any good? Also ive been looking into getting a larger turbo. Any advise on what to do next or avoid not doing would be appreciated

forget about the K&N air filter and go strait for the AFE. the K&N doesnt filter near as well as you want. Go with a Tony Wildman or DP tuner chip.....and you will be very happy!! As far as sticks and a turbo ill leave that to the guys with more experience

You will actually want to go with a smaller turbine housing on the turbo. A 1.0 housing works great. The stock injectors can't support the factory turbo, much less a bigger one. If you want real power, get a chip like Marc said and then upgrade the injectors. I'm running stage 1's and love them.

Welcome to the ORG.!

Im a lil to far away. Up in BC canada. Are those 6 position chips any good? I looked for a bit at injectors looks like the start for about $2000+ is the a good bang for the buck injector. I saw online a quick spool turbo for under 500$ and different sized A/R turbos for 750+.

Dallas4x4...as far as the intake, for the money you'll save, Id recomend the DYI intake. You can get out for $40-$60 instead of hundreds. Instead of buying new injectors, check out, DIY-Injectors.com, rosewood diesel shop. Save some cash there too. I think it was pipelayerjdh, who posted a how to, and pics when he done his. Other than the down time, didnt see any downside to it.
