I had just recently bought a 00 f250 7.3L PSD 6spd 2WD, and its my first diesel. I'm planning on spending a lot by upgrading this truck, and was just shooting for some personal opinions and asking advise before i go shopping crazy. below is a list of what i'm planning to buy within the next month/2.
South Bend clutch rated for 700hp and 1200+ ft/lbs tq.
TS 6pos chip, running up to +140hp
K&N intake adding about 50hp (i hope)
i'm not sure which brand yet, but a 5'' turbo back exhaust
newer model headlights,tail-lights/towing mirrors
3'' leveling kit
ranch hand front end/rear bumper
any comments on those please let me know, and my overall question is:
1) Is it necessary to install a EGT sensor, i figured by putting a 5'' turbo back, i'm sure not to have a problem.
2) I've looked around on several websites trying to find fuel injectors at a reasonable price, shooting for 160cc stage 1 or 2 split shot injectors, anything over 50+hp and a link would be outstanding.
Thank you for helping out a rookie, i know there are lots of threads that could cover bits and pieces of this, but i'm practically looking for a diesel guru to take me under their wing and try to "school me up" at the moment my budget is 5k.
