General ideas and tweaks to get more power out of a small budget.
Hey everyone. Wanted to poll the people on here to get input on getting the most power out of my Super Duty for the least amount of money. A frequently discussed topic I know, because everyone is always trying for the same thing in some way or another.
I have a 99' F250 SD 7.3L 6spd. Current upgrades I've done since getting the truck are a Hypertech Programmer, Highflow Intake, Garrett Turbo Upgrade, Larger Intercooler, 4" downpipe into a 5" short pipe exhaust coming out where the cab and bed meet, etc...
The truck has had a hard life of towing large trailers even before I got it. So I'm looking at replacing the transmission soon because it's starting to fail. With that in mind and the cost of a rebuilt transmission, I wanted some ideas for power mods that I can work on while it's down anyway for the transmission repair. I've only been told hear-say tweaks and other things that friends think "should" work. So I wanted to ask people that might know more about what they're talking about. lol Thanks for the ideas.
