Suggested modification 1996 F350?

I have stock 1996 F350 with 206,000 miles, truck is used to tow heavy equipment. Looking for more power, what modification do you suggest? Estimated cost?

Thanks,

Wise Guy!

WELCOME to the site!!! The OBS guys will chime in shortly, but I would say start thinking about exhaust,gauges, and a chip of some sort that is meant for towing applications. I have no idea on the cost for obs aftermarlet equipment tho.

For more power i would start with guages EGT, Trans temp if an auto and boost. Those will run roughly 300 bucks. straight pipe the exhaust for about 50 bucks. Get a chip from DP tuner or Tony Wildman 350-450 depending on how many tunes you want.

That should be a good start

First of all Welcome to the .ORG, I think you'll find this is a great place.
Now for the mods:
Down pipe apprx 110.00
Cat delete pipe around 100.00
DIY (Do it yourself) air intake Filter 30.00 45 degree elbow 40.00
Tuner / chip 275.00 - 400.00 (if you get a chip you will need gauges to monitor your exhaust temp, turbo boost, etc...)
New turbo 1500 - 2000K if not more
10K mod: I believe under 40.00 (it is a resistor modification that increases throttle response) If I am wrong someone more knowledgeable will come along and correct me. look at this link: 10K Mod
FPR shim: cheap find a BB or 3/16 ball bearing.

I am sure others will have more input.

Gauges are a must when you start modding.
Gauges, Down pipe and exhaust, FPR shim, DYI intake, IDM mod.
That will get you started without spending lots of cash.
More money to spend....custom tunes, injectors, 17*hpop, turbo, intercooler.

Keep in mind that the trans is the weakest link. Upgrades for the trans will come sooner or later.
