Exclamation Best early 99 7.3 mods

Hey. Decided to start modding my truck. What are the all out best mods for this truck? I want power and fuel but don't want to spend tons for hpop or injectors. I currently have a k&n intake, 4" turbo back straight pipe, ts 6 position chip, dfuser map maximizer, dfuser boost tube, bd intercooler boots, and I just ordered a new fuel pump spring and I will be drilling out the banjo bolts in fuel lines. What should I do/change etc. I have no issue with smoke so to much fuel will not be an issue but a plus to me lol. I have a ranger to daily drive so to much smoke and power is ok with me. Please share all your thought on mods. I had a built 1st gen cummins and I'm wanting another powerhouse.

Your next mod needs to be gauges. After that, you are looking at big money mods(turbo, RR fuel system, injectors). Then you will be looking at a tranny.

PM or e-mail me if you would like some prices on gauges.

Re: Best early 99 7.3 mods

Well, to stay cheap you can try searching junkyards for a last model year 7.3 and upgrade intake plenums, pedestal, etc. Then you'll be at least ready for the 38R. Plus. If you know the right way to run it, for $350 you can do slight propane.

Cool cool. I seen riffraff has plenums for $300. How are they? What is the difference in my turbo and a 38r? I'm running 30 psi now on the stock turbo.

Riffraff plenums look nice but if ur on a budget OEMs for newer 7.3 are only $40 each. 38R flow more volume of air and is capable of 40psi.
