What supporting mods would i need for a TS Chip on a bone stock 2000 7.3?

I am going to be ordering a TS 6 pos. chip for my father's 2000 F350 7.3. Truck runs great, only 126k miles, no problems with it, bone stock though. Would i need any supporting mods for the trans? such as a shift kit, or the banks transcommand? If im adding power here, the last thing i want is for the trans to slip, or have the power not get to the ground. Also, is the stock exhaust fine? It does not have a cat. Anything else? Thanks in advance

Been asking the same about my 01 F250. I'm being told that bigger exhaust is a must. Thats what im shopping for now.

You'll need gauges before any electronic performance. As for the exhaust, cutting out the muffler will do but a larger diameter pipe will help keep egts down. Lastly an intake, alot of guys have a DIY cold air intake ot you can pick up a kit. A stock trans should be fine with canned TS tunes except for the Extreme 140hp+.

I would do the guages FIRST! then you will be able to keep an eye on the vitals. You could run the stock exhaust if you wanted but like stated before if will help the truck breath more. Stock tranny should be fine if your not beating on it real hard. Have fun with it

In any order, gauges, intake, exhaust BEFORE any tunes...

I like the DIY intake/6637 filter mod, cheap, easy, quick, great results.

Straight pipe the stock exhaust, the stock muffler is the real bottle neck, no real gains in upping the rest of the system untill you're pushing 400+ hp, aside from exhaust note/tone.

Gauges should be EGT, Boost, Trans Temp (for auto trans), doesn't hurt to do them first or last, just be sure to have the EGT before any tunes, you'll see why once you start watching the gauge stock vs tuned. I like Auto Meters, and I like the mechanical trans temp better than the electronic one, install is a little more involved, due to needing to weld a 1/2" NPT bung in the trans pan for the thermocouple probe.

Man, tons of these threads about.
Better intake.
Free flowing exhaust.
Gauges are a good idea.
A valve body is also good for the trans.

So the trans is fine as is? I'll cut off the muffler, get a nice tip for the exhaust, and do the 6637 intake. And get gauges. Are glowshift ones fine?

Some have been fine with the GSs. Others have had problems. Up to you.
Like I said, I'd add a valve body to the trans. That's just me.
