2002 F350 SRW advice

Ok I have 2002 F350 Superduty, crew cab, long bed, 4x4, auto..

I actually have couple questions.
1- what are some good performance mods, engine wise.. I have a TS chip on it and straight pipe exhaust now. I tow a lot.. Just curious..
2- I was thinking about an exhaust brake, ideas, thoughts, choices?
3- I was thinking bout making dually.. Could I just slap dually wheels on it an roll? Heard two different stories... Didn't know.. I know it's ambulance frame ad all but no clue on that..

Thanks any advice is helpful

1- custom tunes for your chip, intake, gauges (if you dont already have them)
2- idk too much about exhaust breaks but I'm pretty sure it will raise your egts
3- you would have to swap out your rear axle to make it a dually, there are wheel adapters but I doubt they will handle a load, they are really just for looks

How does your truck run with your listed setup? I was thinking about doing a similar setup with mine. I use mine constantly and want more power without going crazy. Are you happy with your turbo mods or do you think you would have been better of going with a 38R?

exhaust brakes are a hit and miss on here, some like them some don't, how much are you towing? if your pushing the max tow then yeah probably wouldn't hurt but make sure you get an egt gauge if you don't already have one. dually axles are longer, if you want to go dually i'd get a dana 80 pretty sure thats what they put in them.

In retrospect I should have purchased the 38r, at the time I didn't expect to do injectors. My current setup runs well, but the egt goes up pretty fast. The 38r would create a bit less heat

If I gotta change rearend I'll prob just leave it SRW.. Just like looks of dually and more stable pulling trailer I think.. But mine does good now

Exhaust breaks work great..just get the best...BD.

Whats the miles on the trans..you may need some upgrades and a 31 row 6.0 trans cooler.

You have a intake ? Tymar would be best option but LOUD esp with a open intake. You can use a AIS with a filter sleave..as quite as stock.

Custom tunes would be a good add along with a boost fooler..

PM if I can help.

For engine modifications:
I would suggest upgrading your turbo to a gtp38r or doing the wicked wheel mod to get rid of turbo surge. Upgrading your intake manifold and getting the 4" down pipe all lowers your egt's, so if you plan on doing the exhaust brake you wont have to worry about egt's.
However your transmission, if stock, will be your weak point after you start pushing more power. Putting in a shift kit, and a BD torque converter, you will really notice a difference.
I wouldn't suggest putting DRWs on a SRW axle. All it would be for is looks, and you cannot tow any more weight unless you have the upgraded DRW axle.
