DIY Horse power

I'm heading to the track tonight and wanted to find out if there was any way to get more hp with low cost and something I could do in my driveway.

Thanks!

Improving air flow into and out of the 7.3 will give you a seat o pants difference, but real ponies cost $$$$ for any thing that will make a difference.

You already have tunes, don't go for resistor mods on top of it. Part of the tuning is basically exactly what the resistor mod does, but the tunes have it incorporated in a far safer and more reliable manner.
