Reliable Modications without Headstuds
So I towed my race trailer and race car up to Summit Point West Virginia, from Atlanta this weekend and found out how damn good of truck my F250 is.
I got about 11 mpg on the flats, 9 in the hills.
I would like to do a few modications that would bump up the mileage a bit under a load, while not even coming to the possibility of stretching my head studs.
1rst) Intake. Cold air, which one? Which one is the best bang for the buck? Is there any huge difference in the towing aspect of it?
2nd) Exhaust. I like the fact that I can sleep in my backseat while my buddy drives and vise versa. I like the fact that its pretty quiet. However, I know its probably restrictive. Whats an easy way to free it up, while keeping down the db noise? Would you suggest just removing the Cat and keeping the rest?
3rd) Programmer. I would consider for better mileage if the fuel could be leaned out a little bit. I am sure from the factory its running a little rich, what could I do about that without again, making the truck un reliable where I would be worried about needing head studs?
4) (This might sound a little crazy) Anyone ever done a manual boost controller on their 6.0? Yes it can be done. Just search on google for it. We made one for our Twin Turbo 350z this weekend and it worked beatifully. I was thinking that and a boost gauge and bump it up about 2 lbs to lean the motor out a little bit? Again, just an idea.
Thats about it for now. Ill post some BADASS pictures and videos from the weekend when I get the chance.
