Thanx in advance

Greetings, All! I've been lurking for a week or so and picked-up a great deal of knowledge from the tech forums. I recently purchased an '01 Excursion 4X4 7.3 in completely stock trim. The first upgrades that I have ordered are bilsteins and a Hellwig rear sway bar. Lane changes in this beast are a real adventure! I am replacing a 2000 F150 4X4 7700 5.4 that is not quite enough truck to pull my 24' enclosed car hauler. My next planned upfits are an MBRP 4" mufflered exhaust and an AFE stage 2 7 layer induction system. The thread on tuner chips is interesting and will be my next area of research. Also, adding Mich LTX M/S 285's to replace the 265/75/16's. I look forward to sharing ideas, experiences and adventures with y'all. Take care and Happy Thanksgiving, Jim

:ORG welcome. Sounds like you got a good plan there. Dont forget gauges though, especially if you tow and before the chip route.

As far as gauges, EGT, Trans Temp, and Boost....Importance is in that order. Contact the vendors Probably on Monday and see what they can do. I HIGHLY recommend Isspro gauges, though Autometer's are pretty good for the $$$$. If you just wanna look and see what to expect, Diesel Manor's site has a pretty extensive gauge area. They even have the gauge pods. (IIRC there are enough PSD specific pods for 18 total gauges...so there are a LOT of options on mounting.)
