Upgrade Questions..

Alrighty boys. Time for me to ask before I start buying parts.

In the next year or so I will be in the market to start upgrading my '97 F250 PSD with the auto tranny behind it.

List of possible upgrades:

TW Chip
Guages = pyro, boost, tranny temp
Turbo back exhaust
SD HPOP or Adrenaline HPOP
Intake
Stage 1's


The question(s) I have reguarding these upgrade is/are; Will putting doing the HPOP upgrade hurt my engine if its done alone? What are some other upgrades I should do to the engine/tranny combo to make them last?

What are your suggestions?

The HPOP wont hurt if you do it now. I herd the adrenaline HPOP is where its at for upgrades. Other than that I'd put a shift kit in there and maybe even upgrade the torque converter. And if you tow a bit an intercooler would never hurt either.

Airflow upgrades are what I would start with. MBRP makes a very nice exhaust kit for the 94-97 trucks and I would go with S&B for the intake. After that, call Tony Wlidman for a chip. If theres anything I can help with, let me know.

One question I had for those who sell or own an MBRP exhaust. Does the kit come long enough for a CC LB and you cut it to fit your needs? I have a Extended cab long bed and dont want to get the wrong kit..

Plans are for guages, intake and exhaust right off the bat..

Thats a good start! Dont forget the Trans is a main factor. A built trans is a huge step and makes it last.

How do you like your BTS? And if you don't mind me asking what did that run you?
