Jumping off the deep end!!!

I have been waiting for this forever, at the end of the month I will have enough money to roll some coal!!! I have a 99 250 and I have finally got the money to buy me some mods. Here is the list that I want as well as the expected price. Wanted to get yalls opinions on this before I make the leap.


5" exhaust - Summit racing - $400

DP Tuner - F5 Approx. 6 chips - $400-$450

Wicked wheel - other suggestions? - $120

Intake - Brands? Ebay? - $200

Gauges - Autometer - $150

Boost relief valve - Ebay - $55

Foil delete

Fuel delivery mods - Seen on powerstrokhelp.com - Good info?


Thats what i have so far. If I can do something else for a little more money to get significant power gains let me know. If I'm way off let me know because I'm trying to get everything lined up. Thanks for your time and input.

I dont really know about the tw chip (my cousin and uncle have dp and are satisfied) but if it is comparable I would be interested. Let me know on the package deal and what it includes. As I said I'm just trying to get everything lined up.

As for the gauges it was an autometer pod but different brand gauges (I think from Jegs) but that was an estimate. I would really like to know what im up against.

their both very good chips... they are both custom tunes chips.. you cant go wrong with either of them.. me personally i prefer the TW chips but thats just me....

here is a link to that: Tony Wildman Chip

for the exhaust you want it straight piped? did you need a tip?

for the gauges.. autometer is what i recommend on a budget.. great quality and not bad of a price.... like this: Auto Meter Gauge Kits

hope what helps.. if you want those gauges i can get you something worked out...

where is it shipping too?

The tachometer alone for me was $140. I think you will have more trouble with the 5" exhaust than what its worth, 4" will be plenty ( I have an OBS though so im not sure the difference.) Raul here will defenitly help you with your chip. Im running TW 6 pos. and couldnt be happier and theyre great guys to work with there. Keeps you informed and Raul will help with whatever he can. Good luck with everything!

Milano, Tx, 76556

Straight pipe, no tip

I want the gauge pod that mounts up on the windshield by the sunvisor. If you cant get it just the gauges will do. Does the ts chip have the controller that will mount like one of the gauges like the dp?

Quality is what i want. I dont mind paying for quality equipment. Thanks.




Just throwing this in what about injectors?

let me know on the price and the 3 gauge pod. i can make a backing for the switch. i dont like to drill holes in the dash if i can help it so i may need a longer cord. does the ts install the same way as the dp?

what about the fuel mods that i saw on poerstrokehelp.com? just want your opinion about those and their effectiveness. anything that i can do myself for free is what i am after.
