Most Bang For The Buck

I am planning on doing some minor mods to my 05 PSD F350 King Ranch Dually. I am wanting to spend as little as I can to get as much as I can out of it. I am not searching for the most horse power just wanting it to run better and get better mileage.

What size is the down pipe on a stock system? I am planing on doing a muffler delete and putting a test pipe in place of the kitty. I may also get a programmer. I am looking for somethng I can plug in and reprogram it then unplug and go. I was looking at the Super Chip programmer. But will listen to informed advise.

Dirty Steve..

SCT Xcal3, and the AFE cat test pipe will fit your stock exhaust very well. If I can help feel free to call or one of the other great vendors on this site.

Man, Pat you are fast!!

IIRC, we have a 3" DP and a 3.5" exhaust. Best bang for the buck is a SCT w/ custom tunes. You will increase HP and MPG without a doubt. And of course, gauges are a big item you should consider first!

The SCTs are the most widely accepted as the best for the 6.0s.

Contact Eric at Innovative Diesel, and he will steer you the right direction!

99% of the 6.0l tuners we sell are custom tuned from Eric @ Innovative Diesel. Its what I ran in my truck, and most of the local guys near us.

I'm sure Eric sells alot more than we do, but I like selling products that put smiles on the customers face, and I dont worry about the product down the road.

Cool

Ok, I think I have reached a decision. I am going to go with adding a 3.5" downpipe, an Accufab elbow, losing the muffler(keeping the cat due to possible emissions testing) and getting the SCT Xcal3. I will place an order for those parts after the first of the year.

This sound like a good place to start. And most likely finnish?
