Is yours an early 99 or a 99.5?
All you need is about $800,
300 for 3 autometer gauges and pod,
40 for a Baldwin PA2818 open element air filter,
80 to have the cat and muffler cut off and a straight pipe welded in at a muffler shop
300 for a TS performance or any other 6 position chip
1 for a 4.7 volt zener diode to fool the map sensor
35 for a fuel filter and fittings at TSC to do the fuel tank and pre-pump mods
120 for a trucool 40k tranny cooler if you have an automatic and if it gets too hot.

I would take the rest and spend it on maintenance or maybe tranny upgrades

i have just got a 99 7.3 as well. it was my dads and so i know its history pretty well. it now has 359,000 which i know are pretty much all hwy and still runs fine, i drive it 100 miles round trip everyday. i know it doesnt have the power it once did, and would like to gain some of it back without really pushin the limits due to milage. just wondering if i could get some advice. as of now it is all stock, so any little tricks would help. and i have seen the how too for the foil delete mod, what does that help? are there any other tricks like that one that will gain power with out breakin the bank? thanks
