New 7.3... Got Questions

Hey guys, Just bought a 99' 7.3 with 112k on it. It has single shot injectors a dp 6 pos. tuner and a K&N intake. 8" bds on 20's wrapped with 38's. This thing is huge and purtty. I love it. O and did i mention its got an 06' front end with 08 mirrors... ya be jealous haha

So couple questions, I'm looking at getting a quad a pillar mount and mounting pyro, eot, ect, and maybe boost? What do you guys think I should run?

The truck also has an Edge CS so we've got EGT's and boost covered.


Now next questions... I am about to drive this thing from Oklahoma to Virginia next week. I have heard plenty of horror stories about K&N filters. I have the stock filter as well. Would you guys throw the OEM back on or keep the K&N?

Anything specific I should be checking out with the stage one single shot injectors?

Thanks for the responses guys. Looking forward to seeing what you guys have to say.

Welcome to the org! First thing to accomplish: Scrap the K&N filter. Get whatever you prefer through your research but most run a 6637 from NAPA. You can run the 6637 in place of you K&N filter using the K&N plumbing. Is your truck an early or late '99?

the door tag says Dec. 98. So I'm assuming its an early. However I would need to check tomorrow, to verify

So would you suggest scrapping that K&N for the Stock one until i can get another one when I get back to VA?

Early. Here is the hybrid setup of the two that I run: http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/att...l-delete-2.jpg

The 6637 fits right in place.

Heres a link to the thread: Foil Delete

I started it in reference to the foil delete and it evolved into the intake hybrid. Seems for your situation if you already have the K&N system, the easiest/inexpensive route is the same setup.

Thanks a ton! Appreciate your help. Any suggestions for gauges or monitoring for anything? I just went out to the truck and set the Edge CT to monitor EOT, EGT, Trans Temp, and Boost.

Anything else I should look out for? Tranny's nice and strong, dove it 2 hours today and everything seems great.

how about some pictures. This thing is a beast.

You may also want to monitor fuel pressure. That is another vital part to the performance of these engines.
