Next upgrade opinions/ideas

I have 01 7.3 and was wondering what mod I should go with next? Just have intake, 4" turbo back straight pipe and a Superchips Cortex? Been running it on the mileage tune since I am planning on gauges but don't have them yet.

What kind of intake? if its a 6637 i would recomend a splash pan. keeps road grime from splashing up to your filter and helps sheild some of the engine heat. Also try a zoodad mod

Gauges and custom tunes should be your next investment.

I can get you setup with both of those if you would like.

I recommend getting rid of the K&N for a 6637 filter

The K&N doesnt filter as well and can dust your turbo.
