O.o mmmm mods.
Hey guys first off id like to say that I just found this site, and so far it is amazing! A lot of props to everyone that contributes to it and I hope to become a great contributor too. Okay down to the fun stuff =) Well I just got my next vehicle and it is a 1999 F250 7.3L, its white and already has a front end and back end replacement, also a 3” add a leaf and 35” BFG All-Terrains. So to me it already looks beast. The truck was purchased brand new in 1998 so it was one of the first models of 1999, and it was owned by the previous owner until recently when I just purchased it, the truck has 134k miles but since the speedometer is off by around 6-7mph I am sure the mileage is not perfectly accurate. Well I want to start making some modifications to it, I have a lot saved up and I know generally what I want to do to it but I am not sure of the order or the right way to go about it. Or how much I could do on my own and how much I really would want to do. Originally I wanted to get a new truck and lift it and through it on 35’s or 37’s, but to me the truck already looks great and feels that way too, so I can put that off for a while, so next I wanted to start under the hood and get this truck up to a level where I can cream that vet you always see when you pull up at the red light. So I was thinking Oh! Performance chip! A buddy of mine has done this to nearly every truck he has owned and man is that thing fun, black smoke, hauling ***, there is just too much! So I was thinking on getting a chip, and I have been looking and looking but I really cannot seem to find the one I want. I really would like a programmer in specific and I would like to be able to switch it down to stock easily without having to change the whole diagnostics or anything, my friend I believe had a superchip with 6 settings and he had a 0 setting which was stock, and whenever he wanted to haul balls, he just switched it to 6 and braaaaaaaaap, so I would really want something similar to that because I could not deal with a constant diesel hog, I mean with the tires I already shot my mpg from 16-17 to 12-13, heh. So I would extremely appreciate any input or help anyone could provide me with to steer my in the right direction or even guide me. Thanks so much in advance for reading all of this and thanks to anyone who makes an effort to help me!
