Good basic mods for 7.3?

Well I'm coming from having a few 6.0's to my first 7.3 that I've made a restoration project out of and have dumped too much money into it now to turn a profit like I planned, so now I'm going to be keeping and daily driving.

The truck is an 01 f350 ccsb 4x4 with 233k miles on it, and I bought it from its original owner. I drive 40 miles 1 way each day to work, and just looking for some good safe mods to do such as programmer/exhaust/etc.

Now, I'm going through the truck slowly, having the transmission rebuilt, wanting to do some new injectors (wondering which aftermarket ones would be best, and how much they are) will be doing an airbox, exhaust, and a programmer/tuner of some sort, just curious as to what the best setup for a nice reliable daily driver would be? Where to start? 3..2..1..... GO

Riffraff 6637 will by far be the best yet cheapest option for an intake. You could opt for a muffler delete on the stock exhaust. Definitely a billet wheel. Edge insight for gauges. And a chip from the tuner of your choice. And I'd put a 6.0 trannyy cooler and a valve body high on the list too.

Best mod I did for the money was the SCT tuner , it will also diagnose issues later for you , good luck with your new truck !

Fwiw, I carry Powerstruck Performance injectors and they come with frees tunes.

Hydra is the best value for what pay for. TS chip is also very good. I also carry everything else. Autometer or Isspro gauges. Or Edge insight CS or CTS.

So far I really like my powerstruck 160/30's and powerstruck tunes. My truck is a DD as well. Got my wicked wheel 2 in today and possibly putting in on this weekend if I have time. My suggestion would be 6637, 4 inch turbo back, 160/30 or 160/stock, billet wheel and some type of gauges to monitor. Pm hucorey for pricing, he'll take care of you.

If you purchase PIS injectors from dyno proven/ no limit you get free tunes.
PIS is located in Lakeland

I would skip the edge insight and opt for the torque app. 60 bucks compared to a lot more. (5 bucks for the app, 25 for the Bluetooth and 30 bucks for a used android phone if you don't have one)
