ya man, I had a edge w juice and took everyones advice about the tony wildman and it DOMINATES the edge. simply put, a good bang for your buck would be a custom 6 position Tony Wildman chip. TS also does a good job. Look at stealth automotive or talk to Raul. He will hook you up.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.

if your on a budget like most of us. and you just got a 7.3. You should do the following until you can afford to go baller status. yank the muffler out put a piece of strait pipe in. look up the tymar filter and do it. also do the Zoodad, you can find that on here also. or type it into google. then look at doing the Fuel Plate Shim Mod. also known as FPR Mod. also found on here. these things will really wake up the 7.3 from how it is off the floor. then, when or if you can afford it, do the Tony Wildman chip.
