7.3 Build

Automatic? If so get a 6.0 trans cooler, upgraded valve body from john woods and maybe a upgrade torque converter with one with a billet cover. Gauges from autometer or isspro: egt, boost, auto trans, (hpop and fuel pressure are optional). Then 4" down pipe from diamond eye. The hydra from php, it's a 17 position chip. 38r turbo with a billet wheel. Intake plenum inserts, new inner cooler boots and bellowed up-pipes ( if they are leaking, most likely will be) from riff raff. T-500 hpop if yours is weak. Pis injectors: either 175cc/80% or 160cc/30%. You will need custom tuning to run larger injectors. I also recommend the FRX to fix the dead head in the fuel system. That should about use up all your money plus some. Since you have a possibility of having a pmr motor I wouldn't do much more than that. You can always check that to make sure. You can only get this much stuff if you do all the work yourself.

^ pretty much covered it , just add on's for the price range as actual builds tend to get pricey quick. I'd do some research into losing the spectre as well , good possibility of doing more harm than good with lack of filtration and possibility of dusting. Google spectre/diesel and read a few of the forums , doesnt look well......

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

being a 2001 he could have a diode trans so the extra power could shorten the life. diode trans need a full rebuild if it goes on you, just something to keep in mind.


EDIT: if its not a manual

Something that a lot of people kind of overlook, you should do the crank case vent mod. its about a 10$ fix, and it will save your turbo that you have now.

e99 7.3 Crew Cab 4x4
6.0 Trans Cooler
06 Mirrors (wired all but heat) 06 step bars
36" Tires/factory 06 18" rims
PHP Chip/Glow Shift Gauges
Crank Case Vent Mod
600k miles and still running strong.

Actually , it does absolutely nothing to your turbo by venting back in. However , overtime the residue can build up in the boots and cause them to pop off easier under higher boost levels. Common mod ? For some. Beneficial to anything ? opinions vary. Smells like chit ? Totally
