Help with what mods I should get!

So I just picked up a 2002 f250 powerstroke and this is what I'm thinking about doing to my truck first. Any input on what I should change and add greatly appreciated. If you could think of ruff price tags so I could know what it will cost that would also be great.

Exhaust: Mbrp Turbo back

Intake: AFE

Chip: Sct

Guages: Not sure yet

I know this isnt much but this is all I can afford right now. In a few months I will do more.

I would suggest a different package, cheaper and much better results.

Exhaust..whatever cheapest as it doesn't make any difference.

Intake..the best a Tymar intake kit.

Chip a TS with custom tunes by TW or Cale@BTS

Isspro, best match and great quality.

We can set you up with whats needed. Please PM me if I can help.

I agree with him on the exhaust, intake and 6 pos chip. I don't know much about cales, but I use Elite diesel tunes. They shift great and work good for everything from towing, daily drivin, and playin. You might want to think about a wicked wheel or compressor housing for the turbo surge that might come from tuning your truck. As far as gauges I use glow shift, some don't like them. Mine work for me and I got them as a christmas present or I would of went with isspro

how do you guys say no exhaust helps I know for a fact my temps dropped atleast 100 degrees when installing a 4in exhaust or are you saying whatever brand you will get results.. My thinking is on the glow shift why use a 40 dollar gauge to protect a 10,000 dollar motor ? and I would check into PHP Tunes

i like your thinking, gauges is one thing not to skimp on, get a good quality gauge, i run isspro personaly
and even the $300 ebay exhaust will yeild results
i know summit sells a cold air intake for about $105 for the 7.3, not sure of the quality tho. i run TS tunes but wish i had gone with PHP. ill know the next time i go to buy a chip

Will my gauges all read pretty close to my buddys isspro gauges to see if they read any different. As far as the exhaust, I ment do a 4in kit but don't go spend more then you have to. All the exhaust are close to the same, besides what type of materail it's made out of.

I did a diy intake on my truck for less than $50. I found the good donaldson filter locally and just used a piece of pipe left over from the MBRP 4" exhaust kit I installed. I installed the autometer gauges and like them alot. Next up is a 6 position chip from PHP and a trans cooler from a 6.0. Then I am done for now.

Or you can go with the cleanable version of the 6637 which is the AFE Big boost
