Lot of advice needed

ok.. i had some issues on running and on start up, which went away after unplugging the bully dog 6-pos switch. I did like the extra power that i had.. so any suggestions?

I still have some white smoke issues on startup and under wot .But truck runs ok.

I know i have some leakage on the turbo housing (oil all the way around).. so i want to rebuild it.
I am looking at a upgrade kit with a schwitzer wheel.. is this any good?

Also i want to replace the stock down pipe.. any good ideas on a bolt on type?


The IPR will be pulled, once i do all the old fuel lines.. should i rebuild or better buy new ?

Maybe give links to the "schwitzer" wheel upgrade kit. Most likely, it's the common wicked wheel, which your turbo already has.

Garrett TP-38 Turbo Rebuild Kit 1994.5-1997
He gives you more in the kit.
Comp wheel is separate though.

as far as a chip goes get custom tunes from beans, tw, php etc.

some white smoke on start up in cooler weather is normal.

turbo rebuilt isnt bad and while you have it off i would recomend gutting the ebpv in the pedistal they are known for leaking oil.

for a down pipe get a diamond eye or mbrp

There are non EBPV pedestals and outlets if you just wanna buy em.
It will throw one code, but soft code.

Soft code is no CEL, but a code none the less.

im sure, i can strip the guts out of the ebpv myself. there are some write ups on it as well. leaving just the solenoid in the truck and keep it plugged in, should eliminate any code ?


here the down pipe i was looking at:

3" Downpipe Ford F250 F350 Powerstroke Diesel 7.3 94-97 #122004 | eBay


As for my exhaust: i already have a cat delete pipe and just the rear muffler on 3 1/2” pipe.. would it make much of a difference of removing the rear muffler ? will it get much louder ? Or do i need to update to a larger exhaust all the way without muffler? .. was thinking of stacks.. but do not like to cut into my bed and need to save some money at the moment.
