E99's have cup throwers...
Line pressure's are likely not tuned for stock programming on the engine. You can take it to a trans shop and have your line pressures measured, if you lack the tools to do that yourself. Once you have that data any decent trans shop should be able to tell you if something in the VB has been tweaked.
E99's weren't to much different than other SD's.
You have AB code 130cc split shot injectors, a 15* High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP), slightly different turbo, and 2 1/2" intake plenums.
99.5-03's had AD's (140cc) and a 17* HPOP. The plenums were 10 bolt 3 inch and the turbo went to the .84 turbine and V-band everything. But all that can change, 7.3's are pretty bolt on friendly.
Only thing I'd keep an eye on is the Cam Position Sensor (CPS). The originals were black, and when they go out the truck dies and won't restart until it cools off. As soon as it warms up it repeats the performance though.
The post recall CPS is gray, and when they go out the truck will run like crap, or just die, or run fine under 2k RPM's, or start gettin really bad mileage, or...
The blue T444E CPS has an unknown timing value, nobody's ever scoped the engine with one of each to see just what the difference is so, avoid that one if you plan on goin for performance.
Best answer is to find a place still selling black CPS's and buy two or three. Carry those and 10mil in the glove box.
