New Here

I just recently bought me a 2001 7.3L Powerstroke and i'm looking to get to know more about the insides and outs of this truck and things to look out for/beware of and future mods that are good or necessary ect...I'm looking forward to meeting you all and increasing my knowledge.

Here are a few pictures I have so far. It's got a 6" lift with 36"x16.50" Dick Cepek tires, a bed rug, painted to match tonneau cover, stock exhaust, intake, filter, muffler & converter delete, American Racing wheels. If you have any tips on intakes, exhaust, and chips let me know of good sites with great deals to purchase these. Thanks for looking.

Brandon

welcome to the Org bud... great looking rig you got their...

my suggestions on whats the best for your truck is any 4" TB exhaust straight piped... since i see snow in those pics i would go with a stainless to help with rusting...

for an intake i would use S&B... great filtration and flow at a great price...

as far as a chip goes... their is no comparing a custom tuned chip like a TW or DP.... i prefer TW but you can not go wrong with either of them...

if you need links and prices let me know and ill post some...

once again welcome to the Org

Thanks!

What's a good brand of stainless exhaust to go with?
I'm not only looking for some more power but gas mileage increase as well. I don't need to have the highest hp truck around or anything but do want the best/ most out of mpg I can get without having to convert to cng.

I haven't heard of either of the TW or DP chips, could you post some links and prices please.
How comparable is S&B to K&N and Volant?

MBRP stainless kits are great... they have two diff SS versions..

409 SS: MBRP F250/350 Turbo Back 4" 409 SS
304 SS: MBRP Ford F250/350 Turbo Back 4" 304 SS

as far as a TW chip goes.. its a custom tuned 6 position chip... do a lil research and you will see that 90% of the people that run chips on a 7.3L are running a custom tuned chip.. its by far the best... dont run any off the shelf tuners like edge, banks, ect.

also with the TW chip or any tuner you want to run gauges... so here is a link to our combo kit: Tony Wildman Chip/ Gauge Combo

as far as an intake goes... do not run a K&N.. they are known to dust your turbo... main diff between the S&B or Volant is price.. S&B is cheaper...

but here is a link to both:

S&B: S&B 7.3L Intake
Volant: Volant Cool Air Intake

let me know if you have any other questions... if your looking to buy more than 1 thing i can get you a package deal price...
