What Would It Take? Turbo, Injectors, etc.

Hey guys im new on this forum, and I got a 01 7.3. Its bone stock now but I was wondering what kind of mods yall would recomend or have bolted on your trucks and the money it would cost. I was thinking about a turbo and injectors, but what else goes along with that to get the most for my money and most safe power. Any and all input would be appreciated.

also how do I upload a picture if its on my computer but not a URL


Thanks Zach

I've been told to get your motor breathing! I did the DIY intake and that took about 25 min. and cost $60 total for parts and filter. I also just ordered a 4" exhaust system from Hog Performance that will be getting put on this weekend. That was $260 shipped to my door.

Yea I have heard that the air filter is really important, i got a KN filter but not an intake. I also made a 4" exhuast that comes out in front of the rear tire. Did you make your intake out of PVC?

I was also told first thing is get rid of that K&N, they are known to suck in too much dirt partials and will basically sandblast your turbo fins. I made my intake out of a 3" long peace of 4" diameter exhaust pipe, (2) 4.5" hose clamps, removed the stock air box and put on a 56637 WIX air filter. Eventually I will make some sort of a housing for it when I have time but I have seen that alot of guys just leave it set (the hood holds it down a little too).

Napa..wrong filter for a dyi..Donaldson better and cheaper. A Real Tymar will flow more as it comes with a mount stand for proper air flow clearance..also a new battery tray.

what was kind of weird was when I took my filter out of the box it had a Donaldson sticker on it...? Expensive though, they are like $55 which to me is better than a $300 intake when you are on a budget. I plan on making my own tray with a few ram air ducts built in once I get the time.
