Talking Performance Package Help...Need Opinions..

Hi All,

Just bought a 2001 F-250 Crew Cab Powerstroke...Auto..4x4

I am looking to put a Chip, Exhaust, and Air Intake.

I would like not to break the budget since money is tight, but need some input on some good set-ups........I am leaning towards doing the Custom Beans tunes and a 6637 intake cause its cheaper and seems to produce..

Any help or info on stuff and where you found a great deal is much appreciated!!!

Thanks All

Diamond Eye or MBRP are both good quality and inexpensive. I paid $275 for my exhaust. A lot of people have the 6637.
I have an extra TS chip that you can send to Beans for a reburns and it will save you $100. PM me if ur interested.

Well. You can send the chip to anyone you want except DPTuner. They dont use them.

I have the s&b, it looks good, but definitely the 6637 is a good cheap intake. All exhausts are really the same between 4" and 5". I have a 5" Stainless flo pro, but really you can just take out the muffler and if you have a cat then that too, that's the most restrictive part of it. As far as gauges, I had glowshift and I can tell you they are cheap, both quality and price. I had a 3 pod, 2 of which I had to replace. I don't have them on my current truck, but when I do they will most likely be isspro or autometer. defiantly do a TS 6 position chip, but I have no experience with custom tunes.

Thumbs up

I was looking at the Isspro gauges before..They look nice....Need my cash flow to get back...Just dropped 11k on my 2001 f250 lariet ccsb 154k miles...I think i got a great buy and trucks in real good condition...unfortunately its all stock but i guess I can make it my own which I don't mind....It's going to be a daily driver to work and that's roughly 100miles a day...so fuel efficientcy is key...

For your budget - straight pipe it , do the 6637 filter mod , get a custom chip from No Limit , PHP , GEARHEAD , (I run GH and like them , no cackle not overly smokey , gear head does not require a boost fooler, don't know if others are there yet ) , a set of gauges , and a Valve Body. Complete different truck ! Not the fanciest exhaust or intake but saves some coin for the Valve body and they perform just as well for the mods your throwing at it IMO.
