DIY mods?

I was just wondering if there were any free or cheap diy mods you can do to these trucks, like the zoodad on the 6.0's. The truck is a 5 speed 95'. thanks

I don't think you can do the zoodad mod on the obs trucks. A diy intake is only about $40. I bought my down pipe on ebay for $90 and had a local exhaust shop remove my muffler and cat and run a straight pipe for $50. You can also shim your fpr and get a little extra fuel pressure. I've got a Hypertech Power Programmer III if you pay the shipping you can have it. I used it on my '96 with a 5 speed.

'96 F350 CC dually 5 speed w/short throw shifter, '03 sd intercooler, stage 1 injectors, D66 turbo, 6 POS chip with Tony Wildman tunes, T500 HPOP, CCV mod, gutted EBPV, modded ID

ya sorry for the misleading information, i forgot the intake system is completley different on the OBS trucks. But you can still do all the other mods for pretty cheap. Most expensive wil be the DIY intake.
I hihly reccomend the intake and straight pipe. Open her up and let her breathe!
