I agree with Hawkins115, you should get the gauges first, but if you get a smaller towing chip, or economy chip you should be alright if your smart about how you drive it.

without guages, you could melt some things down -- especially with no way to let her breathe when you're getting on it... will be hard to resist with a chip I guarantee!

get gauges, then you can monitor you truck's vitals you can see how bad you really need to have the intake and exhaust.

If you don't mind being loud cut your exhaust off before the cat and if your a cat-less 7.3 then cut the exhaust off at the bottom of the down pipe.

I havent been a member long but ive learned one good thing...you need gauges bad...i have a friend with a 05 king ranch with 35XXX miles on her. Its in the shop right now getting a ton of work done to it b/c he had a bully dog powerpup in it and he did some serious damage. I dont know exactly what but the mech said he had burn marks on his compressor wheel!
