Just got my new to me Late 1999 f350 DRW abouyt a week ago and I am really enjoying it. See Signature.
I sold my 2005 cummins prior to buying this one it had the usual intake exhaust and chip in it and I went pretty good especially with a 6 inch lift and 37 inch mud grapplers.
The thing I notice most and miss from my cummins is the throttle response or lack of turbo lag. The cummins had it before it was chipped but once I put that chip in there was almost no lag off the turbo from the throttle. This powerstroke on the other hand even with the chip in takes no word of a lie 2-3 seconds for power to kick in at wot.
I imagine intake and exhaust will make a bit of a difference but I guess Im wondering this normal or could there be other issues afoot.
I have done a little research on here but its a little tough with the obscene amount of acrynyms used with these engines LOL
Opinions wanted here. In researching I've kind of started a parts list to start gathering but Im pretty new to the powerstroke world so Im reading like crazy trying to keep up.
Goal is 4-500 HP but just
-Diamond Eye 5" exhaust (like the sound I know there is no gain after 4")
-DIY intake with AFE Big Boost filter (I think that is washable which I preffer)
-Either Tony Wildman or PHP Both seem good but depends what I need.
The next three should probably be done all at once because I think they all rely on one another to operate properly
-Turbo (I have no Idea what kind or size to go with)
-Injectors (I have alot of research to do to fully understand what Im going to want/need here Stage 1/2/ hybrid. Nozzle sizes and flow rate
-Regulated return and Efuel system
After that Im in the dark I thinking there will likely be some supporting Mods that need done along the way but I got some time to think it through and research because Ive spent a little over 11 gs in the last year playing with trucks and if I mention this to my wife she may just kill me.
Let me know what all you experts think. SPREAD THE KNOWLEDGE!
