easy cheap power help!

I was wanting to know if anyone had some ways to get a little more power out of a 7.3. Ive looked at banjo bolt kits and the cross over line. I didn't know if any of those help or give you a little more power. Anybody else have any other cheap mods to do? Also heard of people stacking a chip with a programmer didn't know how good that works or if anyones done it. If so what chip would you stack with a TS that has Swamps custom tunes for my injectors and turbo set up. All the input would be great thanks!!

Custom Intake (AFe airfilter)
TS 6 position Custom Tunes
4in turbo back exhaust 8 inch tip
175cc injectors
s300 on H2e mounting

You definitely don't want to stack chips, thats only for the cummins guys and you don't want to be classified with them. It isn't good on your truck.

You can't stack stuff on a powerstroke. There is no "cheap" power mods. If you want power you have to step up, spend the money do it right. If not your cheap mod will turn into an expensive motor replacement.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.

Hell if you have swamps tunes and injectors you are either ready for more oil, or air
