Help with safe towing power.

Ok I have a 2001 f 350. 333,986 miles. not worried about miles she runs great and ill certainly rebuild her. Used at least every other day to tow loads between 10,000lbs and 16,000lbs. I'm going to rebuild my turbo and upgrade the wheel with a riffraff or wickedg2 whichever I decide is better. But I'm also getting the head studded in case of future upgrades. I'm upgrading fuel system, injectors, hpop. But I want to know other things I can do to get safe towable power. I've thought about compound turboing. The only upgrades so far are straight pipe exhaust, cold air intake, and edge evolution. Trying to make my mind up before I order a bunch of stuff and not like it.

What are you doing to take care of the drivetrain of the truck? New/better clutch? Upgrade tranny cooler? One of them fancy pumpkin covers that holds extra? Upgraded brakes? Bigger badder inercooler? If your towing everday might wanna look at helpin out more than just the motor.

i'd agree with that.. i know on the 6.0Ls the F-550s had a bigger trans cooler and i'd hope the 7.3L SDs would be the same.. so you might wanna throw that in there.. and certainly a bigger intercooler! i believe Mishimoto makes a nice one and banks makes one for the 6.0L i'm not sure about the 7.3L and what about exhaust to keep EGTs down? exhaust as in 4" not just a straight pipe

6.0 intercooler and trans coolers are a cheap and effective upgrade for the 7.3

I have heard the 6.0 intercooler is a direct bolt on replacement? How true is that? Lol I actually have a 6.0 intercooler in the garage we took off one of the wrecked work trucks. So If it would bolt up fairly easy I may start on that tonight.
