Post Mod advice

This is the first diesel truck I've owned and the first one I've modded so any advice is appreciated. The truck is a 2001 F250 7.3L Powerstroke Extended Cab 4X4 with 150,000 miles on it. It doesnt have any problems although I did replace the cam position sensor shortly after buying it and I have an extra in my glove box based on what I have heard about that part.

Here is the list of mods I have recently purchased and plan on putting on the truck in the next couple of weeks

Guages: Boost, Pyro, and Fuel pressure
Chip: TS Performance 6 position chip
Intake: CFM+ Intake Manifold, Banks Technicooler Intercooler system
Turbo: ATS ported shroud compressor housing, X-Wheel compressor wheel, Banks Power High performance wastegate actuator
Fuel: AirDog II Fuel system
Exhaust: MBRP Stainless Steel stacks

Again any advice would be appreciated and any questions just ask I will do my best to answer to the best of my knowledge. This is my daily driver but I am doing the build looking for Hp and torque. Tires currently on it are 35" Mickey Thompson.

6637, ts chip with tunes, exhaust, gauges, 6.0 tranny cooler and a bts valve body. All that other stuff you mentioned isn't worth a dern. Regulated return or frx would help as well

6637 is the part number for an air filter that plenty of guys on here do as the "DIY" intake mod.

This is the next thing that I plan on doing.

A filter used for an intake. Is the anyway you can send all that stuff back? The intetcooler the cfm+ the compressor housin, ww, wastegate actuator, the air dog, all of that is wasteful. You could have a 450 horse truck for the same money you hace in parts and you might make 325

Bruce, you know more than I do but why return the WW?
I know my truck has started to surge a little with just opening up the stock exhaust.
and the thing is only about 90 bucks.

i say return all that stuff because he bought all that stuff for his stock turbo when for a little more money, money he could have saved if he didn't buy the ic or the cfm thing and he could have a 38r
