4inch exhaust Farm Boy's Diesel makes a nice kit for a great price, Intake I'd go with the AFE Stg II, Chip either the Tony Wildman or DP Tuner. Turbo: I've got the Turbonetics Ceramic BB and love it and the Garrett BB is good also.

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

As far as the Trans I'd get a valvebody, Triple Disc Convertor, and Transgo Trugger Kit.

exhaust - 4" turbo back, I know a place having a sale right now for 300 shipped for Aluminized and 340 shipped for SS... PM me if ya want.
intake - Love my AFE stage 2, but there are others, Tymar, AIS... The are all good.
chip - Dp Tuner or www.totaldieselperformance.com... about $400 depending on the settings
turbo - What are you wanting out of the truck? You dont need a turbo for basic mods... A ATS housing for $400 will cure all surge issues. If not, A Turbonetics BB unit is what I would recomend.


anything else i should buy to improve on it?
do i need to add anything to the trans to make it hold up??
is there an AWESOME all around kit i can buy to make me happy?

also maybe where i can buy these parts.. im 22 yrs old and boy do i LOVE this truck.. all i can think about is modding it.
so please ANY help is greatly greatly appreciated..

Tranny Valve body will help, be it a BTS or a John Woods...

Gauges... Isspro, thats why I run 16 of them...

01 F-250 SC PSD,320k,16 Isspro Gauges, AFE-2,CCV Mod,IAH delete,map reg,Modded H2e, 6.0 IC, 230/100 from P.I.S, Studs, 910 springs, Forged rods, Water injection,Hydra chip-No Limit/Gearhead tuning, Swamps HVHF IDM, MBRP 4" dual's, Aero, 6" tip's, 4" Revtek lift, 37/12.5/16.5 MT's

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
