2000 F350 6spd, modds?

I have a 2000 F350 XLT with a 6spd transmission, for now it has a spectre air filter stuck on the original intake, 4 inch down pipe to a 5 inch straight pipe, 4 inch lift with 33's and a cheap chip that will be removed for a nicer one very soon, and an isspro boost gauge(theres a pyrometer but i have to order the wiring for it), i plan on doing the DIY 6637 filter and when the moneys right a tony wildman chip. what else can i do for performance/fuel economy, looks, etc? im looking for the cheap mods plus the more expensive mods, however money is an issue as i am in college, and have to pay insurance and the loan on the truck. this is my first diesel truck but ive been around them for a while.

Ccv mod isn't a performance mod. It reroutes your ccv to the atmosphere to help clean up your intercool pipe and prolong the life of your boots.

You can do the ebpv delete by gutting the turbo pedestal for a better flow. Not going to notice a performance gain but may help with egts by a couple degrees.

Foil delete is just an insulation on the intercooler. It collects oil and looks pretty rough. Itll just clean up the engine bay a little. And give you a slightly louder turbo whistle.

Didn't see gauges on your list (coulda missed it) but before any big performance mods, I would look into those. Theyll help your truck live longer since youll know what its doing. Boost, pyro, and since you have the zf6 I would run a fuel pressure or oil pressure gauge.

other than putting a diff intake and a new chip there isnt a whole lot more to do to it to get better fuel economy....

make sure all your filters are good and that your tire pressure is right.. ultimately the driver is usually the biggest factor in MPG gains...

well be running a good sale on the TW chips for black friday....

New synthetics. Good synthetic in the diffs, trans, t-case and engine can help out everything.
