Gotta new truck

Hey guys, picked up a 96 f250 ccsb 7.3. Need to change the k&n out for an s&b and add a down pipe. Its got a 4 inch to 6 in tip, the k&n, rebuilt tranny, ts chip with custom tunes. Pretty solid truck. But I have a couple questions, Where is my block heater plug? Its not hanging around the front anywhere, and im not sure where its supposed to be as this would be my first diesel. And also, if I upgrade my hpop will I need to do other supporting mods? I plan on upgrading my hpop now so I can add new injectors and a new turbo after. Anyway, heres the new rig.

Good looking rig, not all trucks came with a block heater plug, but if it does have one it's a cord going into the drivers side of the engine, ran through to the front, it's either tucked away, or isn't there. Upgrading the hpop is fine with having to do nothing else

check near the drivers side battery it could be coiled up. it will have a block heater and you coudl start there and see if there is a cord. if not you can add one. get it from an auto arts store, much cheaper than ford. the heater is in the rear mount of the oil cooler above the oil filter

Almost as "nice". If he had put that money for the straight pipe into a downpipe, it would've been a lot more bang for the buck. Maybe he was intentionally going for sound rather than flow.

Not sure what he was going for, but that and a different intake is first on the list.

Depending on size of your future injectors, you may not need to upgrade your HPOP. Or unless its actually getting weak.

well id like 500 hp towards the end of next year. so id prefer to get the hpop first, well after my dp and intake. Then build, or get a built tranny. Then do a new turbo and injector/fuel set up with valves an head studs.

To get 500hp. 238/100's will have no problem getting you there with the right turbo. For the money aT500 pump is awfully tough to beat and it will handle those injectors just fine.
