What to do next?

I have a 95 7.3 psd with a k and n intake, TS performance 6 pos chip, and a billet wicked wheel. I'm currently in the process of getting a set of gauges and was wondering what I should upgrade next?

DITCH the K&N. Too much dust, not enough air. You can use the hardware, and swap in a 6637. Downpipe would be the next bolt-on. Or full exhaust. Complements the intake (breathe in, breathe out...).

From there, you're looking at injectors, fuel, HPOP and internals.

What do you mean by too much dust? Have you had problems with them letting dirt past? And yeah I was thinking down pipe and then stage one's

Take that K&N filter and hold it up to a light, see all those pores that the light is shining through. Well those pores let a lot of fine dust particles through the media and will damage that nice wicked wheel and your engine. These engines pump a lot of air through them and when the turbo starts winding up that is even more air flow. With the amount of dirt I've seen go through the K&Ns even new or well cared for I will not use them on anything I own.

Well I didn't realize that, thanks for the heads up, so what would you suggest to replace it with?

As brought up in the second post, a 6637 filter. It should clamp on right in place of the K&N filter

How is the flow on those filters? and do the auto meter gauges come with all the wiring and probes/sending units with them?

Ok cool, thanks for all the help! So does anyone have suggestions on where I could possibly put a trans temp sensor in my automatic?
