Performance upgrades.

Have about 450$ in my budget for a new upgrade. What are some good upgrades for my 2001 7.3L in that price range. Thanks in advance.

Based on your signature you have installed a nice set up... maybe consider this.

Crank Case Vent Kit - may not sound like an upgrade but if you could see the restriction inside your intercooler you would think twice.

Start with the CCV kit because its in your budget, when you can replace/upgrade the Intercooler to a fresh BD Extrdued Tube Design, then replace the oil soaked intercooler boots. With a Heavy Duty Boot & Clamp Kit

Hope this helps...
Dave

Maybe custom tunes from PHP or DP for the SCT. That would be a good start and under budget.

It it running perfectly? I recently replaced my IPR and it felt like a performance upgrade because mine wasnt working 100% correctly

Could do IC boots if yours aren't in great shape.
HPX from riff raff?
Coolant filter and Red coolant swap?
Thats just a couple ideas

And also i see from your sig. that you have the 6.0 cooler, I see people talk about this alot but is there actually a noticable gain, and is it just pulled straight from a 6.0 and bolt right in a 7.3 or is there a kit you need to buy?

Thanks.
