performance

I was woundering where i could buy a boost fooler. Also i would like to know if anyone makes a chip that i can change the levels and have the last level as a "smoker" setting just so it will blow loads of smoke. Any other cheap performance ideas for me? or anything else i could do? I have a 2000 F350 7.3 with a stage 2 intake, gauges, edge evo, a banks big hoss waste gate, and exhaust. I want it to smoke and i also want to beat all these little ricers that mess with me.

Look at ITP Diesel, L.L.C. for the boost regulator

and Dp Tuner or Elite Diesel.* Welcome to the Elite for the chip

You cant stack the chip with the edge evol, but the edge 10k one you can... Cant place the name right now...

You can spend $45 for that fooler or spend less than $1 for a 4.7 volt zener diode and wire it into your map sensor. Only takes about 10 minutes to do and works great!

Send a message via MSN to Blue01F250 Send a message via Yahoo to Blue01F250
or you can forget the diode and spending $45 on one from those sites and go to a hardware store and make one for $5.

I had the evo on my old truck first. Got rid of it and went with a dp tuner, It was a lot of difference, and being able to switch on the fly was awesome! I also paid less for the DP than the evo! Only got stock, the 80 econo and 120 race. Got pretty good smoke out of the 120 but he has a 140 smoke if ya want to kill mosquitos
I think youd be happy with chips from either of the links CSIPSD posted. I have heard Tony Wildman does a great job too.
I also recomend getting a BTS valve body before the chip. It really firmed up my shifts and saved the tranny some. You should be able to pick one up for around $250.

where could i get a good valve body? also would you recommend anything else while im there? also could you include any websites and prices if you could. also how would i make a zoodad and a boost fooler? what does it all take? could it harm anything? would a tc lock/unlock be a good idea?

The problem with adding a resistor to fool the Map sensor is it makes it fuel in the highest fuel tables, killing milage and making it impossable to run any tests... For a Valve body look at a BTS valve body.

I have a TC controler from SP Diesel, one of the best on the market if you ask me... Runs off the cruse buttons and is fully ajustable and automatic... www.spdiesel.com

A 4.7 v Zener diode is NOT a resistor. It will allow the 0-5 volt map sensor work normally from 0-4.7 volts then it will stop it at 4.7 instead of letting it go all the way to 5. This way the computer sees boost pressures from 0 to around 17 psi but will not see anything higher. It had absolutely no affect on my mileage and has worked well on all the trucks I have installed it on with no more service engine lights or defueling problems. You are right though, a resistor is not a good idea, I’d rather have a mechanical regulator than a resistor but a Zener diode is cheaper easier and more reliable than a mechanical regulator. None of these things are needed if you are not having defueling problems with hot chips or programmers.
