Question Need some help

Got a 2001 f250 7.3, looking it over I see it has already been chiped, but was removed before I bought it. Also tranny is a reman. and I have no idea if it was (built) or if its just stock. It has the isspro pillar gauges. Also has stock exhaust with muffler delete.

So my questions are

1. Anything to worry about when putting in another chip? Also what would be the best way to go for chips?

2. Is there anyway short of tearing apart tranny to know if there is any mods to it?

3. What is a good 4 inch exhaust to put on from turbo back? I need the muffler as it is state law in Minnesota.

New to the diesel modding so all insight is welcome!!

Thanks

question 1.. no... because you will need to pull the pcm out to install the new one.. if their is an old chip it you would have to physically remove it to install another one.... their is no "best" chip.. but i highly recommend a costom tuned chip like a TW, PHP, DP.... (side note this weekend only if you buy a 6 pos chip im donating 100 bucks to sending out some packges to some troops in afghanistan next week)

question 2... no real way to tell without pulling it apart

question 3... i suggest a MBRP 4" TB exhaust.. they come with a muffler

if you need a package deal for the exhaust and TW chip i can def hook you up....

oh and Welcome to the Org

as far as exhaust goes if you have a near by parts store and a welder you will spend far less money builing your own. Try to stay away from chips, programmers and flash downloaders do the same with less problem. watch out for edge products though, you will see a giant smoke screen with minimal power increase. bye bye fuel milage

1............DP with your own tunes! nothing to worry about
2............if its aftermarket tranny, its more than likely beefed up to handle whatever was previously done to it
3............exhaust, hmm, i love MBRP, ive used, installed, and ran about 4 different kits from them, finally found myself happy with the 5" turbo back kit, and im still rocking a muffler. Silver line is nice, magnaflow is nice.

Checkout Sinister Diesel, LLC or Diesel Performance Parts, Exhaust Systems & Stacks, Diesel Mileage Improvements Products By SCT, Edge, Afe, S&B, & Silverline., they both run some amazing package deals and they are great to do business with.

Also, Raul is then man! Over at stealth automotive! From what ive heard about him, youll never come across another guy willing to work with you as much as he is!

I hhavent done business with him (YET!) but theres tons of guys on here that have. Give him a holler!

Question

So what is wrong with chips (what problems)?? It is my understanding that they are the way to go and to stay away from the programers as they arnt custom to your application like the chips can be..

their are no problems with custom chips.. but just like anything else.. you have to pay to play... it is possible that the extra HP will break something.. but the chance is very minimal....

you can get some programmers with custom tunes but a chip is preferred on a 7.3L because you can shift it on the fly.. where if it was a programmer you have to load and unload the tunes which takes a few minutes..
