What should I do next?

I know this is by far not a new question on here, but with my specific upgrades / mods that I've done so far, what should I do next? I'm thinking intercooler or stage 1 injector/programmer.

What would ya'll suggest? Thanks.

(for anybody using tapatalk and can't see my mods in my sig, they are: Hypertech Power Programmer, 3" dp, straight factory size exhaust, spectre intake, IDM mod, biggest tranny cooler autozone had)

Another possible option with tuning is a friend if mine has the quarter horse tuning software for his racing mustang. He told me if I could find the software and bought the chip, we could tune my truck with the same system. That may save me some money if I decide to do the stage 1 injectors.

6637 intake, custom tuning from tw (no offense to your friend but a gas burning mustang and a 1 ton turbo diesel are completely different animals (unless you can spare an extra motor)) Intercooler and then injectors

I've been wanting to do the 6637 filter for quite a while. But my spectre filter (which was on the truck when I bought it) is approx the same size and is always surprisingly clean everytime I take it off to clean it.

And wouldn't I have to get the TW chip reprogrammed after every upgrade or mod I do later?

This is my daily driver so nothing crazy, just more power. Would love to make it at least as powerful as the 99+ 7.3's were stock.

Custom tuning will let you keep up with a stock 6.0, and you don't have to have the chip burned for every new mod, but hell it's free why not reap all the benefits of even having done a mod


We had a member post piks a while back of his specter filter sucked in on its self

Really? With the current mods I have now? And I also didn't know that re-burning was free.... Nice to know.

That ain't good, guess I need to order me a 6637 filter after all. I already have the 4" pipe with a bend in it to my existing filter.
