I NEED HELP NEW TO THE DIESEL GAME

I HAVE A BASICALY STOCK F350 THAT IS A 7.3 PSD WITH A 6 SPEED WHICH I HAVE FORSALE. I AM GOING TO PUT A BUILT C6 BEHIND THE 7.3 PSD. FIRST OF ALL I HAVE NEVER MESSED WITH DIESELS BUT HAVE HAD 5 SECOND MUSTANGS SO I AM MECHANICALY INCLINED. I HAVE SEEN THESE TRUCK RUN AN I AM VERY IMPRESSED. I WANT TO MAKE MINE RUN FASTER AND WONDERING WHY MY BOOST DOES NOT START COMING IN TILL ABOUT 2500 TO 3000 AND REDLINE IS AT 3400. PLEASE ANY INFO I CAN GET FROM YOU FELLOW POWERSTROKERS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING THAT MOST PEOPLE DO TO THE TRUCKS AND WHAT IS YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE C6 WHICH WILL BE A REVERSE MANUAL VALVE BODY DUE TO NO VAC FOR MODULATOR. THANKS JAMIE

I have no clue about the trans questions, but most start off the mods with the DIY or aftermarket intake, 4" turbo back exhaust, guages of some sort (pyro, trans temp, boost) then a chip or programmer.

Some unplug the wastegate on the 99-03 7.3's to build boost somewhat quicker -- have the power come on a little earlier in the RPM range.

that should give your truck some pep, then if(when) you want more, you can upgrade the turbo, go to dual Hight pressure oil pumps, add bigger injectors, and water/meth injection.

All those mods will have you running pretty dang quick! But make sure any trans you get is built or has upgraded TC and valvebody as all that power and torque usually kills tranny's

C6 came behind 429 cobra jets from the factory that where puttin around 500 lb of torque stock. So upgrading internals and other things will make the tranny capable of holding over 1000 hp and no telling how much torque. Thanks for the info

Intake, gauges, exhaust, then 6 position flip chip with custom tunes.
Man I wish I had that 6 speed instead of my automatic, are you sure you want to put an auto in it?

I do not believe the C-6 will bolt up to the 7.3L. The bellhousing bolt pattern is different.
I am not 100% but that is what I have been told.

Advanced adaptors may have a plate to mate up to 7.3. Non turbo 7.3-6.9 I think
89'-91' model year's had c-6 trans but also may have different bell bolt pattern than a gas.

They stopped production of the C-6 in '88 for the diesels.

I have a '85 for truck that has a C-6 and then I put a 7.3 IDI factory turbo in it and the two bolted right together!!

That what i was told by a well known tranny builder that i live near. He builds trannys for people across the United States. Its Godley transmission. He can build me a c6 more than capable of holding the torque and hp of what the powerstroke will put out. That way i dont have to worry about all the electronics that you have with the electronic one. Plus they dont weigh as much. I appreciate all the info keep it coming.

Why waste the time of converting to a C6? Why a 3 speed C6 that does not have a lockup TC?

Get a 4R100 from BTS or John wood. They build and guarantee them up to 1000hp.
