Exhausting question

We all got together for a family thing and I was explaining some of the improvements Iíve made to my truck to my cousin. I showed him how I installed Boost, EGT probe, trany temp, and Fuel pressure. Then I explained why for each and what I could see, what I look at when towing... he looked like a deer in the headlights. Why Boost, EGT, Trany (auto), is not a stock item on a Diesel I'll never know.

He wanted if there are enhancements for his Ford. My answer was probably pretty vague. Like, Iím sure there are ______ dead space________, Iím not sure what they are or in what order they should be done. He has a í97 PSD that is stock.

Iím assuming exhaust, intake, programming, & fueling. What would you guys have said?

TIA

welcome to the site. yup, exhaust,intake,progammer/chip. those two would take care of fueling. and these are the basic beginers starting points. and as always, gauges before ANY chips/tuners. also, back in the late 90's, hot roding diesel's wasnt any where near as popular as it is today. so auto makers didnt worry about gauges. today however, they are starting to put thier own in. i know ford has boost and tranny gauges as does gm i think. not sure on dodge. soon i think they will be standard on diesel pickup's.but not right away. happy psding.

Thanks I'll pass it on to him.

You never know my next buy may be a Ford. Back in the day I worked on naturally aspirated IH 6.9 and 7.3ís. When they turboed the 7.3 is just about the time I quit working on them.
