New Member 2000 Excursion 7.3 Upgrades

New to the site........purchased a 2000 excursion for my wife 77500 miles nice vechicle. Trying to learn as much as I can.....took me a while to rule out other excursions, I wanted the 7.3.

I will be modifing the unit a little to increase millage and towing.

First off I am trying to keep the wife happy......that means a new stereo with GPS/Backup camera and maybe DVD any suggestions.

Suggested mods would be nice

We specialize in Excursion suspension upgrades....many posts from members that have done our mods. We also can get you performance mods..my excursions a '03 7.3.

First mod...get rid of the K&N and either get a AIS or a Tymar intake.

PM me if I can help.

I live in Nipomo CA
Been very busy with work......hate to say it but I have a 5.9L Cummings love the engine complete many mods use the truck for work and hauling.

Right now I am just trying to learn more about the 7.3...not looking to modify the excursion too much since it is my wifes car.

Just for my education, what is wrong with the K&N Filter/cold air intake?

Thanks...........will keep reading on the site any links to fuel economy mods and mild hp would be appreciated.

k&n lets to much dust through. get the 6637 replacement filter. its a large, paper filter that flows good and has excellent filtration.


if you want more power and mileage look into a new freer flowing exhaust system and a chip from a reputable dealer.

then to monitor your truck id recommend gauges with a chip.
egt and trans temp are important to the longevity of the truck

these will get you more power and better mileage.

K&N - There are two camps on them.

1. People who think their just fine as long as you clean and oil them correctly.

2. People who think they let too much dust through and can cause the turbo/engine to be messed up by it.

Personally, I'm in camp one. I've had mine of for nearly 85,000 miles, the truck still hits 20lb boost, I drive it daily, I pull my 5th wheel. I will say that I'm not an off-roader, but have been off-road a few times. I'm sure I see a lot less dust than someone who does go off-road more often.
