7.3 Performance Advice

My buddie has just bougt a 99 F250 7.3 and was wondering what performance stuff to put on it. It is a CCLB w/a 4" Lift & 35's it also has a manual 6spd tranny. I believe it's already got an exhaust. Just not sure about which chip to go with and so on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. He's gonna use it mostly to haul with, but he doesn't mind to play a little either Thanks Guys!

Send a message via AIM to Raul@Stealth Automotive
i suggest Gauges, intake and a custom tuned chip like TW, DP or PHP

but with a manual truck he only needs 4 tunes...

Well first off gauges would be good, then i would go with a 6.0 intercooler, And some kind of custom tuning, like wildman or dp tuning, i personally have a dp tuner and i love it, love the extra horse and made my truck shift so much better. and some tranny mods wouldnt be to bad either.

Do the basic mods, intake, exhaust if he actually doesnt have it and guages, then do some custom tunes. And that should get him started
