Get rid of the edge, and get custom tunes.

Sounds like you'll be needing to save money for a new transmission if its an automatic :-) Just a warning.

1) Custom tunes like mentioned before

2) Turbo, either 38r, WOP GQSSB, or S366.

3) Regulated Return

4)17* HPOP

5) Trans upgrade, BTS

6) Stage III hybrids 238/100.


That should do ya fairly good, probably around 450 hp, Didn't really say what your goals are.

my first thought is have you re geared the axles? that alone will give you a good power increase.... but most people dont like doing it because it costs a good amount of money.. .after that get some custom tunes....

I think they are 373s.. Whatrver stock is for the 99 f350... I dont really have a budget because im doing this overtime not all at once. Do u guys think I should upgrade the the 99.5-03 stuff before getting a new turbo or just get one that is a direct bolt on from the early 99 turbo??
