Mods

I am fairly new to the mods. I have an 03 6.0PSD SC. I am going to start to do mods and was wondering where to start. I am mostly looking into better fuel milage. I do some towing in the summer. I figure exhaust, gauges, intake, programmer. Any help is appreciated. I am ready to start ordering some things (not all at once) and need guidance on where to start

In this order is the usual recommendation...

Gauges/Zoodad
Exhaust
Programmer (SCT with a tow tune definitely)
and then Intake.



Hit up any of the SCT vendors on here, most of them have package deals to get you started.

Sounds like a good start. I was thinking exhaust and gauges before tuner. I don't plan on the Zoodad since we have a lot of snow and rain

Hey 2003PSD I see you are over in Cleveland - I am near Erie. Have you dealt with Larry from Discount Power Parts? He is located in Pittsburgh - Baden to be exact. Anyways he set me up with my exhaust/quadzilla commander and SCT tuned by Innovative. Larry is great to work with and not to far away from you if you wanted to take a drive.

If you're going to tune it... start putting away money for headstuds. You WILL need them.

That'll work too.

Rain/snow is a debate with the zoodads. There are homemade and premade
screens that help with debris in the there. I havent had any problems with rain yet myself. As for snow, we have been really shorted on that this year.

+1 for this route. I already got my zoodad done. Next, gauges, then FBD TB straight pipe, finally SCT with custom tunes.

We'll have to see where I go from there.
If the ca$h is avalible I'd like to do alot more

Doin mods as cash comes! I am still debating the Zoodad, I could always make a custom one at work with a cover when it snows I guess. Does it help that much? So I think it will be
Gauges & Exhaust at the same time first.
Then I will get a programmer and for economy and tow (until I do head studs $$$)
Intake last? I don't know for sure, but isn't it better to have the 6.0 with as much air in and out as possible?
