New Guy

Hey everybody. New guy here to Diesels. I am looking forward to being a contributor. That is once I figure out where the spark plugs go in this thing!

Seriously, I am very interested in some go fast parts while keeping my rig looking great. 61k miles and she's really clean!

Please bear with me as I'm sure you'll see me ask some pretty newbish questions for a while. Then, later, when you least expect it, I'll have actual intelligent content to add. How about that!!??

hehe, first -- there are no spark plugs there are glow plugs and injectors

and Welcome to the .org!!

the basic "go fast" parts for the 7.3 will include in basically this order...

intake, exhaust, guages (those three can be swapped to any position) then chip/programmer, water/meth injection and then on to bigger mods such as ball bearing turbo, bigger injectors (sticks), dual HPOP's (high pressure oil pump).

the 7.3 that you have is good for about a max of 400 HP because of the PMR rods. Hope some of that info helps

Vitalidle, I like what I see in your sig. I'm going to post a question about the bucking I'm dealing with lately on Pgm 2 of my Edge Programmer. Please let me know if there's anything you have that I should get.
