Brand new PSD owner

I have a 2002 X and I have been going through a ton of these threads and have learned a lot but some of the stuff I have no idea. This is my first diesel ever and I love it. As you can see below I have a 4" Diamond Exhaust and an intake but I want to get better MPG's (like everyone in the world) and also want to make my PSD run the best it can. I saw a thread on the AMSOIL kit and the foil delete (I would love to hear the turbo more) and a few other DIY mods/improvements that I want to do to my X. Can you please tell me everything DIY I can do and everything performance/MPG's I can do also. Thanks everyone for your help.

welcome to the Org bud.. and congrats on the new rig... that 7.3L will treat you well...

if you havnt done the zoodad mod you can do that next...

i think your next step is gauges then a custom tuned chip....

the biggest factor in MPG is your right foot....

what Amsoil kit were you refering too?

I'm not sure which one to go with. I looked at the oil filter one that allows you to change your oil less often. I know you still need to send a sample into a company to ensure your oil is still good. Thanks for the info.

I have done the zoodad mod. What is the turbo fooler mod and how to? What about the wastegate? What is the difference between a custom tuned chip and the Edge Attitude? Thanks for all your help.

ah k your looking at the Bypass kits... im actually running a group buy on them right now....

the diff from the custom tuned chip and the edge attitudie is BIG...

the edge is just a generic tuner... that and they are known to cause trans failurs on the PSD's

a custom tuned chip is custom made for your truck and your trucks mods in mind... their are no 2 alike....

zoo dad mod is cutting a whole in from of your intake to let in cold air.... look at our documentation section on my website and i have a write up on how to use our Z plate to do the mod...

Welocme to the .org!!

Start with the gauges.

Start with the gauges.

Start with the gauges.

Then you will be able to tell what each mod does to your truck. Good bad or whatever. It will create a baseline for you to work from. And of course you will be monitering your trucks vitals..

Happy Modding
