7.3 Mod Help and Advice

Well I just purchased a 2000 F250 XL Superduty with 162,100 miles I have always loved diesels and finally had the money to get one of my own. The question I have is what order I should do the modifications in and also what are the pros and con of different brands. Also what are good modification to start off with?.

Thanks, Kevin

Depends on how far you’re going to take it but here is my personal opinions for normal folks.
First is make truck happy
1. Gauges $300
2. DIY intake $40 or less
3. Trucool 40k tranny cooler (for automatics) $120
4. 4” or 5” Open exhaust $300 or less
5. In tank and prepump filter and fpr fuel system mods $30
6. CCV mod ~$5

Second make driver happy
1. Tony Wildman flip chip
2. Map sensor fooler (if needed) $1
3. Front end lift level (I built my own)
4. Rear work/backup lights $20

I would have your local diesel tech (or yourself if qualified) give it a lookover and check for any problems that need addressing first, fluids, filters, glow plug test,wheel bearings,belts, hoses,etc. THEN start adding go fast goodies as mentioned above. You may need the money to repair unforseen problem first.
