hi, i have an 02 f350 and i have a couple parts questions which may belong in the performance section...but also are general...so i dunno, i'm sorry if this thread is in the wrong forum.
1.) i have a magnum force intake system but the filter is shot, i've cleaned it and all but it's still nearly black...can i fit a K&N filter on this or do i have to get another magnum force filter?
I have never seen a magna force. If it is a 4" clamp on style it will work. Most do not like the K&N. I would PM Raul@stealthautomotive he is a sponsor her on the ORG
2.) i'm looking at the Edge Products Ford Evolution Programmer EEF1120 for my truck...i've read some good reviews on it and it seems to be the most bang for the buck as far as power and fuel mileage gains...do you guys agree? or have any advice about this?
Most will tel you to stear clear of Edge. There are a few tuners that do custom tuning on the 7.3. Just because a company advertises in a mag and claims this and that doesnt mean squat.
3.) i'm getting about 14-15 mpg during the summer and about 8 mpg during the winter...is this normal? the drive is 50/50 town/highway and on the highway i try to keep the truck generally between 60-70 mph using around 5 lbs. of boost give or take
Winter blend fuel will cause this.
4.) i have a full 4" exhaust system on the truck but i want to put some stacks on it...if i buy the mbrp split pipe big rig setup and a couple stacks...is that all i'll need for the mod? or will i need to buy a special downpipe and/or muffler? are there other more complete/cheaper/better setups out there for this?
Sounds about right.
5.) when it rains, the belt squeeks for days on end sometimes...is this common in these trucks?
No check the belt and pullys you probably have a bad belt.
6.) how often am i supposed to be changing the oil on this truck? i've been doing it every 3k/3months but i drive big deisel trucks for a living and they can go forever without an oil change...am i throwing my money away?
I change mine every 5K and every 10k i change the fuel filter and drain the seperator.
thanks for your time.
