Wow, 3 grand. That's 3 grand. And I really don't see the need for the intercooler upgrade until you start doing things like injectors, fueling upgrades.
A lot of those prices are likely MAP pricing. Minimum Advertised Price I think. It does not mean that you will pay that price for the product. For instance I know you can get a TS 6 position chip for 300 bucks, if not 200!!! Also it's either the Juice or the TS.......not both. The 6.0 intercooler is a popular swap for the 7.3's and will save some bucks. Also 726 bucks for a Magnaflow turbo back is WAY off! I gave 410 for my magnaflow. I bet you could get a smokin' deal from Farmboy's Diesel on his Farmboy's Budget Exhaust kit. I have not seen a negative comment on his exhaust yet, and for the price you will think you stole it from him. 450 bucks for the AFE is off. I got a quote from a vendor for over 100 bucks less on the AFE. In the end you may spend the same or more likely a little less on the other parts vs. banks but you will get quite a bit more power. It will be just as safe as well, provided you don't do something a 16 year old with a 3 da old drivers license would do. So in essence, I guarantee you that if you took a little time and shopped around for the best possible prices (you gotta call our vendors, they can beat those prices that you likely found hopping websites) you will spend less in the end vs the banks.....and when we're talking banks vs. others, less is more!
