Upgrading decisions

I was looking to do up grades on my 2000 7.3 all I have is and edge tuner and want more, so I was gonna do the banks big hoss package but all my friends tell me not too. They say over price under powered. So I was wondering what other companies can I look at upgrading my engine power, exhaust, inter cooler, turbo, injectors,etc.

It would really just depend on your horsepower goal, when choosing which modifications to go with. Just an FYI, if you plan on upgrading injectors, you will need custom tunes, which is not possible with the Edge unit.

Most will start out with intake, exhaust, tuner, and gauges. You can then look into upgrading injectors, turbo, fuel system, and HPOP. Pick a HP goal, and I can give you a recommendation.

do a billet compressor wheel, exhaust, intake, and 160cc single shot injectors.

the banks stuff is a huuuuge waste of money.

I'm all stock right now but I'm looking to gain around 150-200 HP that's my main goal.

Get a chip rather than your edge, php Phoenix, php hydra, dp, beans, swamps, no limit etc. get gauges, intake and exhaust if you don't already have that and see how it feels. Then injectors if you're not satisfied. You're only limited by your wallet, haha.

160/30 injectors, a GTP38R turbo, and custom tunes will get you in the 150-200HP above stock range.

You really don't even need a 38r. Just get a billet compressor wheel and you should be good to go.

Thanks for the help. With me recently moving to Wyoming and being @ 6500ft above sea level I lost a little bit of power so like I said I was looking to up the HP's. So I'm doing my research and saving money and asking for advice
