Quality aftermarket blow-off valve

I have a 2000 F250 7.3 ZF 6-speed. I have added a 4'' MBRP exhaust and a K&N drop-in air filter. Supposedly the truck has a Bully Dog chip in it, but I do not know that for sure. The only other engine mods I wish to perform are: a good performance chip/tuner, possibly a cold air intake, and an aftermarket blow-off valve. Since I have the ZF 6-speed, I think an aftermarket blow-off valve would sound awsome. Do you guys know of a good one that I could buy and install?

Boy do I feel retarded. Thanks man, i appreciate the heads up on that one. Could I tap your insight for a recommendation on a good tuner and intake system? I been hearing good things about the AIS system, but the filters are high... I don't want a cheap system, its not worth sandblasting my turbo impeller and rings.

I've heard good things about the AIS too and apparently INJEN/amsoil just came out with one I was riding?? exhaust is up to you... right now I got a magnaflow on mine(bought her that way, glad it wasnt stock haha) but straight pipe is great too. the less back pressure is good.

I agree the search feature is your friend. Welcome to the forum. Make sure you do the correct supporting mods before running tunes, intake, exhaust, and gauges, if you had a auto you would want a tuned valvebody for the trans as well.
Also get that K&N drop in filter out of your air box today!!! They have been known to dust many a 7.3!! Probably hands down the worse filter you could possibly run. The AIS would be a excellent choice. See my mods!! PM me with any ?

Do the 6637 intake. Best bang for the buck. Sounds the best. Great mileage gains. Looks awesome. K&N will clog up and mess up your truck. Trust me. I have pics of a drop in fram that came in my truck. Solid black sludge from the oil that comes in them.

I agree with the last guy here K&N is junk on a diesel and just serch around. Something to keep in mind though is if its an open type filter it will be much louder than one that is sealed in a box or seals againts the hood. Me I dont mind the noise. I run a Tymar Perforamance Air Intake. This one is pretty loud though lol.

Thanks alot for the input guys - I just ordered the DP tuner 5 pos. system, and still have not reached a decision yet on the CAI. I am heavily leaning toward the Tymar system. I know it will be loud as hell just from looking at it. The K&N intake is coming out as soon as I get back from offshore. I had no idea those drop-in filters were so crappy. Thanks for that heads up guys most def.
