New to the 7.3 community

Well as of a few weeks ago i am now a 2002 rclb 7.3 owner, got a good deal on it with only 83k original miles, virgin motor, no upgrades, no programmers, totally stock, just how i like them so i can mess them up myself, the reason for the new truck (as you can see in pictures is the rolling of my 04 6.0, surprisingly no one one was hurt other than my wallet). Ive been reading a few other posts about the best upgrades, ive definetly got a few on my soon to do list whenever i save as much money as a poor kid in college can.

Soon to come is hopefully:
  • Mbrp turbo back straight pipe, maybe like a 6" tip, depends how i like it
  • AFE 51-10061-1 Power Magnum FORCE Intake Stage 1 Pro DRY
  • Not sure what brand but a quad gauge setup
  • Most likely mile marker hubs, since i had a problem with my stock hubs on my 04
Thats all i can really think of off the top of my head, thats just the short list i hope to have done before about christmas, but one of my biggest questions right now is my buddy gave me a boost fooler for a 7.3, i cant find any specific installation instructions on it though, any help?

You dont need it for a stock truck, it will not do anything.

As for the AFE stage 1... Skip it.

Isspro EV-2 gauges.

I don't think you need a boost fooler for a modded truck anymore either. Current tuning has made those a thing of the past.

New truck looks good BTW

I'll echo the last two posts, but go with numbers.

1. Run whatever tip you want. I think large tips are gay, other folks like them. To each their own. 4" straight pipe is a good idea though.
2. You have many options, AFE being a more expensive one. The "6637" mod is cheap and effective, though not weather friendly. Ford AIS is quality "enclosed".
3. Ponder this for a moment and decide what you want out of gauges. Edge Insight CTS is ~equal price of a 3 gauge setup and provides many more options. The EGT expansion is required to make good use of it.
4. Unless yours are broken, skip upgrading the hubs. Mine are broken, and require leverage to manipulate. They will be replaced with Warns, but I'm a Warn guy. If yours work, then leave them alone. Rebuild as required, replace as desired.

7.3 upgrades I would do, in order, assuming driveability things are good, and truck is in stock form:

1. Gauges
2. Intake/exhaust.
3. Tunes. I use PHP, but there are several not "canned" tunes that will make you happy.
4. JW valve body, as needed, depending on how tunes affect your truck.
5. Everything else.

And to triple down on it, don't use the boost fooler. Useless item that does nothing but separate fools from their money.
