Stock 7.3 2001 dually w/ 300,000+miles. Can I add peformance without hurting motor?

Hey guys! I have a 2001 F-350 crew cab dually with a 7.3 and a fresh rebuilt tranny. The truck and motor have 309,000 miles on it and the tranny has less than 500 miles on it. My questions and concerns are, can I add any performance to this truck? It's all stock. I just wanted to add a air intake, 4 inch turbo back exhaust, and a chip. Would that be ok? Please let me know. Thanks.

You should be fine. Iv heard of a few 300,000 plus motors blowing the heads off because of boost. But they were running stage 2 injectors and a big turbo, you should be fine just drive it with common sense

Yes. I got more than that but barely.
I'd get gauges of course before the chip.
Then an intake or exhaust. I did a DIY intake with a Baldwin filter. And a Walker Big Truck Muffler on the exhaust.
Then get a custom tuned chip.

I've got that many miles on a stock trans save a Factory Tech valve body.

Most get Boost, Exhaust Gas Temp and Transmission Temp if the have an automatic.

I'd say get the exhaust and intake before a chip. My thinking is that some tunes will raise EGTs and the exhaust will help lower this.

Get all of before a chip. The gauges are the most expensive thing and they need to be done before a chip so might as well spend another 100 or so and do the rest.
