I have a few questions on the 7.3 I am new to a diesel truck and really don't know where to start.
I have a 99 F350 (non dully) 4x4 crew cab long bed auto.
I have done some of the maintenance things to keep the truck running longer, but my biggest question would be
What can i do to get more low end power. More acceleration and more power to drive the truck on the beach.
It did decent on the beach the last time i took it out there, but it seemed like it struggled when it became softer sand (i know that all diesels will because its a lot heavier)
Things i have done.
I did the intake mod (built my own intake/filter) and bypassed the blow thing that goes into your intake (Crank Case Vent Mod)
new filters (oil and fuel)
straight pipes (4in) dumps in front of my rear tire
Planed upgrades so far are;
Gages for everything (egt, volts, trans temp, boost)
6.0 Trans cooler
valve cover gaskets
Please let me know what you would do on a semi limited budget, that might increase power/torque but i also want to make sure my truck will last a very long time.
