The New Guy, Just wanted to say Hello

Hey Guys/Gals,

I just bought my first diesel truck. Its a 2000 F250 xcab shrtbed lariat with a pwerstke. I hate to say it but, "I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DIESEL'S". So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for some opinions on performance kits that people ahave tried and liked or vise versa.

Well I just wanted to stop and say HELLO

JKRussell

Welcome to the .org!! Glad to have ya here!

Most will recommend these basic mods to get you up and going pretty good..

First is aftermarket or do-it-yourself intake, 4" or larger turbo back exhaust, GUAGES!, then a chip or programmer.

there are several other mods you can go onto from there, but those will get you started and running pretty good!


most people around here don't like K&N because some have had a tendency to NOT filter quite good enough for these engines... they have been found to allow "dusting" of the turbo and engine (which is BAD) -- they just can't filter the air good enough and these diesel's suck a MASSIVE amount of air thru the filter -- seems SOME of the K&N filters just can't keep up with the demand of these engines

I agree with Blue01F250 about the air filter. As far as exh goes it all depends on your budget.Mine started as a bulldog dual kit I sold the dual kit except down pipe for stacks(personl preference) might check with farmboydiesel I think he had a system on sale?

AFE Stage 2 intake is considered one of the, if not the best out there and almost any exhaust will be good to go -- they are all about the same

But as 460+ said, check with Gus at Farm Boy's Diesel -- he had a stainless steel 4" turbo back exhaust on sale for $349!!!

The only thing I will add is Brants right almost any exhaust will be good and perform about the same with one exception, and that is the fittment issues. Not all exhausts are equal in that dept. If you plan to do the exhaust yourself, or even if you choose to have a muffler shop install it. A good fitting exhaust will cause you less grief in the end.
