Air Intake System and Turbo Back

Hi,

I just recently purchased a 2000 Excursion 7.3 TD. I have owned a F250 TD in the past and am glad that I'm back in one.

My F250 I left stock, short of a K&N intake system.

I want to do another intake system and turboback exhaust.

My question is this, in doing these 2 mods, is it necessary to do some sort of programmer with them?? Really my main goal in doing this is fuel economy. I know...I know...I'm probably going to leg into more once I here how it sounds, but in theory that is my goal. So, is the programmer necessary??

Thanks in advance.

Not neccessary but wise. Intake and exhaust will give you wonderful airflow and lower egt's. A programmer can help with mpg's. Plus they make driving your truck funner than h*ll. And WELCOME to the org.

I have a 6.0 so hopefully someone with a 7.3 will chime in soon. I think a ts chip is popular for you engine.

Talking

I also have a 2000 Excursion. I have a S-B Cold Air and a 4" Stainless Still Turbo Back Exhaust. I do have a chip but it is not nessasary. But I don't believe you will get much extra mileage if you don't. A little hint, if you know that the extra power is there, no matter what you say or how conservative you are, you will use it and love every minute of it! Pretty much all chips are the same, but the tunes are what makes them different. Everybody Likes Tony Wildman tunes! I still have my TS tunes for now.

I have the S&B cold air intake, supertuner flashpaq 1805 (for 6.0 psd) and as far as exhaust, at the local muffler shop they said that the 4" from the turbo back is a waste of money, why get a bigger pipe than your turbo exhaust just replace the muffler much cheaper, don't skimp on a tuner, you will regret it if you do

No you don't have to use a chip or performance tune just because you increased air flow. The increased air flow will make the stock truck seem like a different vehicle, they are a must if you want to use a chip, but it doesn't work the other way around. You also don't need a full 4" exhaust unless yours is trashed. The factory muffler is the most restrictive part of the factory exhaust, by simply replacing it with a $40 Walker BTM muffler you will gain 80% of the benefits of a 4" system. Between the Ford AIS intake and the BTM mine flows all the air my truck needs and EGT's have never been a problem.

A programmer is not necessary... i would do a AFE stage 2 intake, 4" TB exhaust... later on if you plan on doing more get yourself some gauges and a tony wildman 6pos chip

Thanks for all the input guys.

And I know once I do these mods I'll be legging it all over town. I just need a reason to spend the money, and fuel economy sounds like a good reason....haha
