How much power?

Start with stage 1's (baby swamps)
Regulated return
Exhaust
Intake
Chip (TS)


Thats the good start to wake a truck up

  1. Gauges. Boost, Pyro, Trans temp if auto
  2. Exhaust.....4" turbo back straight exhaust
  3. DIY intake / Tymar intake
  4. 6 Position chip, w/ custom tunes..... many out there choose the best one for you. I'll be going to PHP when I get mine, but to each their own
  5. Plan on a upgraded tranny
and

auto? manual? if its an auto they usually dont last long with a chip and all, manual the clutch will start to slip to. but like they said always gauges first, than down pipe(helps alot but a pain, stcok is flat so u have to bang the fire wall out to get the 3" in) than u can just gut the cat or spend the money on a whole exhaust, than intake they have the napa 6637 filter do a search to find the write up, or spend a few hundred on an intake, than a chip, only custom! those canned tunes dont do much for 7.3s. like banks, edge, bullydog, hypertec and so on get a tw,dp, php, swamps of something. will seem like double the power. than see how the tranny does. most get valve bodies done and TC done, me i have to but a sb or centreforce or luk or valair clutch
