Shes still a terd!!!

I've got a 99 7.3 that I put an edge juice with attitude on, straight piped it and she is still slow and hardly blows any smoke. What is wrong with her?

edges aren't necessarily that great for much
if it's all you can afford might as well. just don't expect much.
straight piping is just allowing more exhaust to escape faster.
maybe your HPOP isn't pumping hard enough?
maybe your fuel pump can't dump enough fuel to make smoke?
idk just ideas.

fuel pump will help. if you still have the stock injectors and hpop, then that should be the main issue. you wont get much out of those injectors. upgrade to stg 1 or 2. im told the single shots might give more power then the split shots.

what kind of boost are you seeing.... a custom tuned TW chip and a new pump like the adrenalin and you will do pretty darn good.. but... im suspecting you have a boost leak or a exhaust leak

good point. do you hear your tubo wine?? or whistle?

also get the napa 6637 ( i think thats the number) and that will help with the intake air flow.
