could i tear my motor up with a dp and stock injectors???

first of all i just dont want to harm my truck. now i know u can tear em up stock but u would just haveto have a heavy foot, dont get me wrong i want to blow some smoke but still keep it together. i also would like to know if the down pipe is really that big of a priority...... what im sayin is, i want to do a few things to my truck just not something thats going to need this, this, and that.

just remember it is the right foot that tears them up not programming so i would say no remember 7.3 liters is a big engine i am fleet manager at a ski resort and our snowcats have 7.2 liter engines you have a lot of motor there i would not worry about hurting the motor more in the way of the tranny also dont forget to watch gauges heat is what kill stuff

Get gauges, straight pipe the truck, put a DIY intake on it and get a custom chip from someone like Tony Wildman.

That'll make good power and be cheap to get smoke and economy.

Just FYI, the ZF5 is not a direct replacement, you will have to replace the rear driveshaft also and a few other things.

Plus, not to meantion it will make your truck slower.

It should be said a MILLION TIMES.

First thing you EVER do to a OBS PSD Truck is REPLACE THE DOWN PIPE!

It is VERY restrictive!
