A few NEWB questions

Wassup guys,

I just bought my first diesel. Its a 02 F-350 w/ 7.3. Ive got a couple newb questions. I noticed it has a Superchip in it, but dont know any specs about it or if its tunable. The number on it reads 330-5. I also noticed it has a Garrett Turbo in it. Is that stock or a aftermarket replacement. What is the stock boost these run and how much can you run safely with a stock motor. Here are some pics I took. Thanks ahead of time for any help!

Your Superchips is probably a tow/haul chip with a 40hp/70tq. That's what I've seen the most of.

The turbo apears to be a stock unit. With some mods, you can get 29-30 psi out of it, but don't expect any more than 30-31. Stock you might see 19-21 psi under load, up hill, etc. There MIGHT be a better compressor wheel in there, but I doubt it if they didn't mention it when you bought the truck.

Any other questions, just ask!

Yeah, even those boost numbers maybe a little high for a stock truck. You will see those if you are running a hot flip chip or something, but probably not with that gold SC. You will see 15-21psi alot more than anything else. Good Luck with it and Congrats on the new truck.

Do you have guages?

no gauges. I need to get a EGT and Boost gauge. I want to get Bully Dog's 6 gun but what can I do with the superchips. Is there something that needs to go back in if I remove it?

I am assuming that is over your PCM access hole, if you pull it, you can just put something over it and secure it. But, you could do a 4 or 6 position chip and put back in there too. I think you will find that to be much more fun than the SC. You need some guages first though if you plan on adding a lot of power

So I can use the Bully Dog on top of the Superchip? What good quality and affordable EGT would you recommend? Where is the best place to tap into the exhaust? Thanks for all the help
