My "new" 96 f250 crew obs, now for some mods!

Hey guys!

Long time browser and finally subscribed since I found my new truck.. well new to me anyway (will get some pics as soon as daylight comes). Its got 200k on her and is completely stock. What I'm thinking:

3'' DP to 4'' Diamond Eye Exhaust Kit (Stainless)
TS tuner
6637 Intake
Gauges

I've ordered the 6637 from fleetfilter and am looking to get the tuner from ebay. I'm not sure whats a good place for gauges, and I don't know who retails the DE exhaust kit in S.Texas since their website doesn't have a list of retailers. Any ideas on who sells and what are good prices for these items? Thanks for the help!


Edit: My main focus is to get fuel economy on highway. I have 1 semester to go in college and will commute 250 miles a week with 200 of them being highway. Then, in January I'll be commuting 60 miles a day for my job.

Paul is a great guy to deal with. As far as chips go, do not get one from ebay, get a custom tuneed chip. He can prolly set up a package deal for you, chip, gauges, and exhaust

Sounds like you've got the basics covered!! Be careful with the tuner though, once you start adding power, it's hard to stop

Thanks, all the credit goes to the org, though!

I was looking at more info on the tuners available and read up on the sct flash tuner. Anyone have some opinions/experience with these?

I've never really heard much about then in the way of the OBS. Most guys go with 6-position TS-style chips.
