The 7.3 to me is the best small diesel engine ever built due to its brute durability. Here in the south the 7.3 is the most saught after diesel truck out there now. Some people are paying up in the high twenty's for one. It has been a real challenge making the transition from the high torque and high hp to the 7.3. I have to say I was even a little dissapointed with the slugishness of the 7.3 I hope some of these mods can put the getty up in the 7.3. I don't have to have the fastest but its nice knowing if you have to go quick you can. I have and AFE stage I intake and have just ordered a 4" diamond eye turbo back exhaust. I am trying to pick out tuner I am stuck. Should I go with a Banks or Bully Dog or neither. Sorry for the long message.
I would go with DP tuner and forget the big marketing/propaganda of banks or bully dog. They can not even touch DP tuner in the power they put out and DP is much smoother to drive as well.
Make sure you get a set of gauges to watch the EGT's.
