Just bought a 2000 F250 7.3 need help with mods.

I Just bought a 2000 Ford F250 7.3 4x4 6 speed.I am new to diesel world but I am catching on fast. I was wanderin what would be the cheapest exhaust set up. I plan on puttin a intake and tuner on later. And what would be cheapest way to make it roll black smoke. Thanks

The cheapest setup would be 1)diamond eye 2)Farm boys Diesel exhaust 3) Vaious places on ebay. All three are about the same price. MBRP probably make the best kit out there but they are a little more expensive. I went with the FBD 5" exhaust. Love the sound. Never rode in a 7.3 with only a 4" but I like the way my 5" sounds

If you want more power then your best bet is a chip from TW, PHP, or DP tuner (search feature.) If your only concern is smoke then your better off not bothering.(We don't need more emmission constraints then we already have)

MBRP 4" EXHAUST 99-03 FORD POWERSTROKE 7.3L NO MUFFLER - eBay (item 130446528351 end time Mar-20-11 12:12:43 PDT)

this is the kit i had on my old truck, but mine was dual exhaust. i had a local exhaust shop put it on for $250. LOVED IT! wont smoke much until its chipped though. i had an edge programmer on it and it smoked a little, but it was fast just with a mild chip and the exhaust. sounded beautiful

I like to see how fast I can clear up my smoke. If I roll into it off the line mine barely makes smoke any more and I like it that way. Makes my truck look clean.

Rollin coal is for booger pickers. Get a good exhaust and a tune and gauges.

Just because it smokes dont mean its broke!

But my suggestion is dont make us diesel enthusiasts look bad by just tuning your truck so it will smoke. If you want to have the performance then there is not really any need to have it pouring black smoke.

And its more badass when you have a truck that doesnt look like it will do much and then you tear off the line and leave that little civic sittin at the light thinking "WTF was that?!?!"
