new old 7.3

I just bought a 2002 7.3 psd and want to modifiy it but don't know where to start. I have a guy who can install a superchip tuner for 400.00 and know that i'm going to straight pipe it. budget is limited so any ideas and am I getting a good deal on chip/tuner also all im gonna do is tow a 20000 lbs 5th wheel and use it for transportation. I want good mph and performance no racing

First off the programmer is way over priced. Don't get it, there is a few chips at a better price that run better.
List of things I would do in order:
Diy intake 6637 filter from napa($50-100)
Diamond eye exhaust turbo back($250)
Gauges, boost,trans, and egt. I prefer isspro but autometer is good also. Don't do glow shift or maxtow. ($400)
Chip. Either a ts 6 position chip ($250) or the hydra ($375)
Billet compressor wheel from riff raff ($200).
All these items are fairly easy to install

01 f-250, Standard
Rev tech 4" lift,37" military wrangler Mt tires
KC diy 66, Full force 160/100 and custom tunes from PHP
Banks inner cooler and full 4" exhaust, Diy S&B intake
Diy quad feed, Hydra, Isspro boost, pyro, and fuel pressure
3/0 battery cables with military style terminals

Capt Jim I can get you a single position chip. We call it the "penny pincher" $199, it comes with one tune on it specifically for daily driving and towing.

I also forgot you need to install the 6.0 trans cooler if your towing. I would do this first. Heat kills the trans.

If you were ok with spending 400 on a super chip just buy the hydra from hucorey for 375 and you'll be much happier. Gauges are a must with any tuner.

I was looking at the 6637 air filter and read that I would need a 4" 45% bend piece of pipe. In looking at it I dont think I will need that and does anyone know if I can use stock air box without top for a protector of splash up and road dirt

Just use a piece of 4" exhaust. The 45* is for OBS trucks. Air box needs to come out. Don't worry about any splash getting to it. 450 at work has 6637 and it's in and out of landfills, quarry's, and jobsites with no problems .
