Which mods to do first?

Ok guys I have a 2000 f250 7.3l 4x4 crew cab. So far I have the 6637 kit from RiffRaff on the way and I plan on the muffler delete in one way or another (either replacement section of pipe or catback). What should I do next? Thanks in advance guys, this site is awesome!

Stancor glow plug relay wouldn't be a bad one I guess. Thanks for that link, awesome info.

If you aren't in california I would look at either delete pipe or 4 inch turbo back, no use in a cat back exhaust.

Once intake and exhaust are done, most people will then get gauges and some tunes. We can get you going with both of those if you are interested.

Shoot me an e-mail or PM if you have any questions.

I have the intake on the way. I am going with just a delete pipe I think for now. I am interested in doing some tuning. What kind of cost is involved?

I assume that if I go with the muffler delete pipe I should at least get a new up pipe? Would I be better to buy a 4" system or just delete the muffler from the stock system? Is there that big of a difference in the 3.5" (I think) stock and 4"?

I would get a 4" turbo back straight pipe. Mine is 4" turbo to cab, then 5" to exit. I want to drop it back down to 4".

When you are playing with diesels, you need to keep the intake and exhaust as open unrestrictive as you can. Gas engines allow for a lot of wiggle room, but diesels need to breath.

You can just cut your muffler out and weld in a chunk of 3.5" for now. Once you want to get into a chip and more power, you might want to up it to a 4" turbo back. I just have stock straight pipe. It was cheap and made it fun but I want to get a 4" later on.
