Performance mods besides tunes/intake/exhaust

Hey guys, just got a new Stroke! 02 ext cab F350 7.3 of course. Besides tunes, exhaust, intake. What are some tricks to get some power? I know of the resistor mods, but what about tricks with wastegate? Boost coolers? I'm not very familiar with them? Thanks for the advice!!!

injectors, 38r, gears,aftermarket HPOP, pretty much the things i cant ever afford lol. but u asked about tricks i mean really besides dropping wheel barrows of cash for the good power parts ur pretty limited when it comes to "tricks" all i can think of is gutting the pedestal, boost fooler, 6.0 cooler, the above mentioned resistor mods,wicked wheel is decently priced but not much of a power adder, and really just getting the parts u need reinforced for when you do get the big go fast goodies.

What is a boost fooled, and why does the 7.3 need it?

Boost fooler is a mechanism used to fool your PCM into thinking it is receiving the right boost levels so your truck won't start to defuel itself after you floorboard the skinny pedal. Two ways to do it. With a pressure regulator in ur map line or 4.7 Zener diode. Search both and u will find alot on either

hahahaha no if I have the time and cash I could do alot to a vehicle but the auto trans is something I have nothing to do with. Maybe when I'm old and gray I'll have the time and tools to tinker with automatics. I had it rebuilt at 298,000. Guy did a ****ty job just kind of ridin it till I can afford the ats unit
