What mods for the ultimate tow rig.

I have a 97 sw f350 obs ps with a 5speed. I tow a 33' 5th wheel and im tired of everybody passing me on the slightest incline. I know im going to get a intercooler but what else would I benefit from with the stock turbo. I currently have the 6637 air filter setup and a tb 4" exhaust. I want the 6 position chip. I just need to know what else would I need.

Skip the turbo housing and do a ww2, that quick spool is good for starting but looses gas at the top, you can only flow so much why so why run out in the beginning

Well with my stock rig intercooled, custom tunes, intake and turbo back straight pipe I pass people with no trailer while I haul one, so I would say yes, but I have stock 120cc split shot injectors, so baby swamps wouldn't be bad but I plan to upgrade and keep towing

Just get stage 1's..get a D66 it will flow more air than a stocker with a new wheel. IC, custom tunes, a new clutch kit, gauges and your good to go.

PM me if I can help..we have all.

Also check the health of your hpop. May want to throw a 17* or modded 17* in there while you're at it.
