02 7.3

i have a 02 f350 7.3. i have a 4 in exhaust and a cortex. dosent seemed like the cortex added much power. i uped the fuel pressure. i know that you could take a resistor off the map to ground as a boost fooler. it worked great on my 00 but i sold it so i cant look at it and see what resistor i need. also i have a stock air intake. i rember hearing something about a diy deal useing a round paper filter from napa. but dont know what one etc....... any other cheap power adders? i dont need to much more but it would be nice it had more than it does now. thanks!!

cheap power and a 7.3 does not go together.... If want power id sell the superchip and buy a custom tunned 6 pos. chip from either:
Swamps
Tony Wildman
Beans
Gearhead
PHP
etc.

Look into the DIY intake and your gonna want a set of gauges to go with the chip.

1997 Single Cab Dually, S366 w/ Irate mount and plenums, EFuel, Intercooler, P.I.S 175/80s, Corbeau seats w 08 console, 19.5s, 6637, Black Interior with swede headliner and visors, Custom badges, Flight Fab Traction Bars.

pulled the pressure regulator cap off and put a bb behind the spring. the pr is on the drivers side of the fuel filter. it has 2 torx bolts that holds the cap on and there is a fuel line connected to it
