Advice on Mods needed

Hello all, I'am new to the diesel world as far as owning 1. I have a 2002 F350 Super Cab Dually with a 7.3L. I want to spice it up a bit with an exhaust system 4", tuner, and air intake system. Thinking about installing 373 or 355 gears for better fuel milage. It's 2 wheel drive. Any suggestions will be greatly appreiciated.

this is my suggestions for your truck
Gauges first... you need boost, pyro and trans temp
S&B intake
4" budget exhaust kit straight piped
as far as a tuner goes i would def go with a custom tuned TW chip...

now for your gauges... you will not be saving that much money by changing your gears

think of it this way... your going to ahve to purchase the gears and a install kit.. lets say you find a great deal for around 400 bucks... now its going to cost you easily 250 bucks to get them installed.... so your innitial investment is 750 bucks... lets say you get an extra 1 or 2mpg.... its going to take you a long time to just break even with the saving syour getting....

i can get you a package deal for the whole setup if thats what your looking for... if you want prices let me know and i will PM you or post them up

BTW Welcome to the Org

First you want a 4" turbo back dont wast time or money on cat back and such. Any system will do 1 thing to consider is material. Intake wise most aftermarket is going to flow way better than stock Stay away from K&N. Another option is a DIY search DIY intakes and you will find some ideas. And for the chip you should look into DPTuner or Tony Wildman. A set of Guages should be first on the list pyro for EGT bost and trans temp.
