New Ride

I got a 01 powerstroke, lariat, 4x4, auto. All thats its got done to it is 5inch str8 pipe, air intake and superchip. Any suggestion on what would help adda lil more hp that my tranny will withstand? I thought about adding cfm+ manifold, xdp turbo wheel, and airdog 100. I know that this year cant go over 450hp but any help for about 350 would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Very nice truck!
#1) get rid of the superchips - a custom tune is so much better (so I religiously hear on here and will be finding out soon!) DP Tuner is what I'm going to go w/ - others will debate that, so do your homework and find out what's best for you.
#2) As far as the cfm+, I was looking at it as well. But if you aren't going for some crazy *** hp, the stocker should be fine. They claim it only flows 15% over stock - which tells me the stocker does a pretty good job - minus the heat soak issue. I decided to save my money as my hp goals aren't that great.

Just my .02, someone with more knowledge will chime in soon

That turbo wheel wont net you any power. It's mainly for curing turbo surge. Not saying you shouldn't get it, but don't expect gains from it.

I say your next investment should be gauges. It's always nice to know what your truck is doing behind the scenes. Especially if you want to make decent power. Gauges and tuning will be your best bet.

And should you be one of the unlucky ones to have PMRs in your 2001, that's pretty much as far as you can go without putting heavy coin into it. Well, I guess you could go stage 1s and a 38r but you haven't told us your budget yet. That should put you around 350.

pull the inspection plug out of the block, if you see a bolt head you have pmr, if you see a stud and a nut you have forged rods. google it and you'll find pics of the plug and what to look for

I haven't seen any batmowheel results. But Jonathan is the man if he's tuning it she'll live. Mine is at above 450 with pmr.
