Just got a 99 f250

Hey guys I just picked up a 99 250 with about 260k new transmission with 5 year warranty. Runs great. I am new to this but any ideas on what I should do to it for daily driving? Also there is no built date so I dont know if it is a early 99 or late? I was also looking into a PHP Phoneix Tuner.




99 f250
260k
4 inch banks exhaust
Bts transmission
banks ottomind chip

there are several ways to tell...one of the million ways is on the driver valve cover there is a sticker with your build date...another way is see if you have two large relays next to each other right by the fuel filter housing to the passenger side...one is the glow plug relay..the other only came on the late 99+...it is the AIH relay...there are several...i think also is there a passenger side airbag...i think it came after the early 99...

I'm using the banks six gun with the PDA and a seperate EGT and Boost gauge pod. Works great. Monitors eot, ect, ect. 6 stages of power levels plus speed boost. Also can modify each tune to your liking. performance tests, monitors data, just about does it all.

Yes, I have a 6.0, never said i didn't. The SixGun is made for the 7.3 also. Was just telling a little about the device. Person asked for ideas on what to do with it for a daily driver. I gave my input on the tuner i use, and researched before buying. Works great for me. Beside the comment you added to mine; and no input to the person's question. Whats a good tune since mine provides none? I would like to know. Or do you not have a cool story bro?

and to the op, throw that raggedy banks junk out the window, go get you a ts chip tuned by beans, swamps, gearhead, tryant, php, tw, di and so on. you already have a bts which are quite lovely i must say. the warranty isn't 5 years it's 2 years unlimited miles unlimited power after 2 years he will will fix it if you ship it to him but i think you have to pay for parts. and if you can't tell whether is a e99 or l99 take a pic of the intake spyder and post it up, most would be able to identify it in about .3 seconds

Massively oversized signature pictures get on my nerves.

And Bank$ blows. You can make more power for less money with other just as reliable products. Now, since you already have it, there's no reason to take it off. It's not that it'd bad stuff, it's just too expensive.

You already have a great transmission, so it will take anything you throw at it. I'd do an intake if you don't have one. After that, it depends on how much your budget is. Gauges are a must.
