Diy mods

I've had an 01 7.3 6spd for a year and a half. about to turn 200,000mi. I want to do some mods but have little to nothing for a budget. I'm going to delete my cat. and modify my intake first. Been seeing some diy intake mods and was wondering if anyone had any more ideas on how to get more air without just buying a new intake. I would appreciate any ideas

zoodad mod helps get cooler air into the intake. also a metal box around the intake if you do a 6637 with 5" sides will help to defect engine heat.

You can get them at most any parts store. I got mine at napa for $35 ??

Zoodad is just a matter of cutting a hole in your header panel to allow for more cool air

Use google and a few key words, "powerstroke, zoodad, 6637".

Do some searching and reading before you ask away. The answers are out there.
