My SIG.

Budget? Some extra money is relative to some folks on here, lol. $50 or $10,000??? Get a PHP hydra chip or a TS style 6pos chip. You won't be able to do all that with an '02 with PMR rods though.
Dont roll coal. One less tree hugger Prius driving retard calling the Sheriff on you the better. Unless you take it to the track or some country back road.

do you have gauges yet?

egt and trans temp(if you have an auto, 6 speed doesnt need temp gauge) are a must. boost is good too.

after that look into getting a chip with custom tunes from tony wildman, php, gearhead, no limit tuning.

good tuning really wakes the 7.3 up.

dont buy edge, bullydog, superchips, diablosport etc. less power and most of them wreck your trans.

then if you want to upgrade your compressor wheel look at riffraffs billet wheel. great results with mine. cured surge, more power too.
bd power and dieselsite also make good billet wheels as well.

Why are the gauges a must? are chips not reliable enough? are the easy enough to install yourself?

No chips make the truck less reliable(in a sense) Gauges, intake, exhaust are the first three things that should be done to a 7.3 before you even think about increasing power. Yes they are pretty self explanatory, Diesel Manor has a pretty good write up on installing gauges.

gauges give you insight on how your truck is running.

for example. my friend thought his truck was running great, smoked everybody out, bragging about the huge black clouds.

he got gauges and was bragging about 10 psi of boost he was getting.

i looked at him and told him i get 33 psi, we then went through and fixed a lot of issues on his truck and got it running the way it should be.

without gauges you dont know how hot its running,, and you definately want to monitor egts when towing or messing around.

and trans temp can get high with these if you re running the stock trans cooler. a chip just makes these trucks work harder, and you want to know everything is operating the way it should be.
