Talking How's it going

How's it going my name is Corey and I have just bought my first 2002 f-250 7.3 v-8. I've heard little about this truck and i'm really enjoing it and just wanted to know if any one knew if I have gotten a good deal 130k miles all highway bought it from a rep that travels here in NM. I'm owner number two and wanted to know if there were a few people that could answer a few questions I had.

Well.

Like I stated. Ive got a 2002 f250 with the 7.3l v-8 and I was wondering if it is going to be a good truck. It is my first ford desiel I had a Dodge but.. We wont go there. It's a 2wd and I wana put some some money into it. I'm looking for a descent tuner chip that wont destroy my truck(still paying for it) Ive got some one putting a(n) 4 inch turbo back exh. and was curious if it would be better to go dual or single, straight back or behind the wheels stainless or galvanized or weather to remove the dpf. umm how to get a susp. lift for a 2wd that wont cost a fortune preferably 4-6 and i just bought new toyo open countrys a/t 265 75 16 and wont look trashy while ive got those tires.. or look retarded for that matter. umm there really new like 6 days old I really like them.

the 7.3 is a very reliable engine, but it does not have a DPF that is only on the 08s and newer i.e. just the 6.4s for exhaust setup that is really just personal preference and for a good chip I would get either a TW or DP tuner both are custom tuned and custom tunes are teh best

TW is the tony wildman chip that you can get from stealth automotive or total diesel performance and DP-tuner is another chip you can get from their website and a couple others, both are vended on here. Edge products arent bad either but they dont compare to custom tunes

Welcome!

If you go with the edge, you will wish you went with a TW or a DP. I have the edge juice with attitude, it adds some power (but hurts your tranny in the long run)
do it right the first time. TW or DP
