Red face Fast and Easy.. I need help!

i just purchased a 97 f350 Powerstroke and i'm looking for some cheap and easy upgrades to do before i start adding in the big money.

i will be driving it everyday but also some drag racing, pulling a large trailer, and weight transfer sled. just wanting more power, decent mpg's, some attitude, and maybe some black smoke?

the truck has 175k miles, a ts 6 way tuner, k&n cold air intake, 4 inch straight pipe w/ 3.5" downpipe (might do 6" stacks?), and a southbend clutch.

any tricks and ideas greatly appreciate!!

Ditch the k&n for a 6637 filter. Get the TS custom tuned by php, beans, etc. Without doing fuel, air, and oil that's about it.

Oh, you could also do an electric fuel conversion and a regulated return.

You could also NOT make smoke like an idiot.
Smoke = you're dumping fuel, washing down cylinders with fuel and soot, wasting fuel, burning things up with high EGTs, you're lacking air, and showing how ignorant you are

It's his first post, maybe just say that making smoke in today's world of regulations isn't cool and very much frowned upon.

Could also go with a modded Idm.

Thanks guys, your input is appreciated! Smoke isn't a big deal to me, I know what it is and what causes it. Just looking for some tricks I haven't heard yet! Thanks again!

the biggest difference in the 97 and older trucks is the lack of large injectors, and the lack of an aftercooler......so... put some stage I's in it, and an aftercooler, get the chip re-burned and you'll have a little more than a stock 2000 with just a chip.... gets the 97's and older into the 20th century ....

Thats not entirely true. Most chipped super dutys put down 320whp. A chipped/stage 1 obs can put down from 360-400whp with beans live tuning. Keep in mind, our trucks are lighter than super dutys, so less hp/tq is needed to be as powerful or fast as them.

But that doesn't mean it puts down more power. The sd still has more fuel flow and the 17* hpop. The OBS may be faster in a straight line though

Wait.. a chipped sd will put down 320whp, and an obs w/ stage 1's will put down 360-400whp.. but its not actually putting down more power? I'm lost. OBS doesn't need a 17* hpop because we have single shots stock.
