Couple of performance questions

Hey guys I'm an OBS newbie converted from cummins lol. I had a couple of quick questions. My truck is a 95 f-250 powerstroke auto with the banks power pack and guages already installed

1) what is the best adjustable chip to get and where is the best place to order from?

2) where can I find a good cold air intake for it?

3) has anyone done the DIY exhaust brake and if so how well does it work?

Thanks guys for any help. The truck is a daily driver and does a little towing but not much

A few people have done it, but most people don't care, it's not stopping you much, if your truck is auto you want to ensure the tc is locked when it's engaged, (tc locked switch) as far as a switch a ts style 6 pos, I like tony wildman tunes and php has good tunes too, there are several good tuners out there, I enjoy my AFE intake but the DIY 6637, tymar, and s&b are all good ones

Thanks for the help. Is there a way to hook up a tc switch? And would both have to be engaged for it to work? Sorry for the goofy questions. I normally drive standard trannys. Wish I could find someone who wanted to swap for a 5 speed lol

Your transmission MUST be in Lock-Up for the exhaust brake to work, if your transmission is not locked you will just slip the transmission rather than slowing the truck down.

We are an AFE and S&B dealer both of which make an intake for OBS trucks, We also sell TS6 position chips. I have a few obsolete AFE intakes for sale dirt cheap that would fit your truck PM me if you are interested.

Wish I would have known that before I dropped $390 on my last one

But what he said yes, although I've heard below certain rpm's you can float the valves too
