First Ford

Well, I Went And Done It. I Bought My First Ford. But, I Went For The Top When I Done It. I Just Purchased A 1995 F-250 Xlt Supercab Long Bed 4x4. It Has The 7.3dit With The(yuk!!) E4od Trans. It Has 138,000 Miles On It And I Bought It From The Orignal Lady Owner. The Truck Is Equipped With 4.10:1 Gears And A Locker In The Rear With Lockouts On The Front. I Am Basically Looking For Mild Performance Improvements That Will Not Have Much Negative Effect On The Life Of The Engine Or Drivetrain. We Are Going To Use It For Travelling With My Daughters Fastpitch Softball Team With A Slide In Camper. I Have Already Installed A K&n Filter And I Am Looking At A 4" Turbo Back Exhaust From Motoblue. I Think I Am Going To Fab My Own Cold Air Kit Instead Of Paying $300.00 For An Aftermarket Unit. Any Help With These Topics Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Keep On Truckin'.

Send a message via Yahoo to sea71
to the site, and congrats on your truck!! You are heading in the right direction already. Making your own cold air box will definately save you a dime or two. Oh, and you may wanna doa little research on here about the K&N air filter. Not a lot of good things to be said from the techs. The 4" exhaust will definately help you keep down the EGTs and will aid in performance as well. Once those projects are complete, and the "powerbug" has you wanting more, find yourself a tuner or chip that is tailored to your liking. Also get some gauges in there to watch everything before you add a power programmer, etc. A bare minimum is an EGT gauge and Trans. temp gauge. Hope you the best of luck with your project!

What Is The Problem With The K&n? I Have Had One In Every Veh I've Owned And Never Had A Problem. I Am An Auto Tech By Trade And Have Been For @15 Years. The Only Problem I Have Seen Is That There Are People Who Think More Oil Is Better. We All Know That Is Not True. Please Give Me Some Input On These Problems. I Would Like To Know. Thanks For The Insight.

Welcome to the Forum!

Ditto on everything Sea71 said, I have heard enough bad things about K&N's to replace mine. I also run them in everything, but they just don't filter dirt enough for a turbo. I'm sold on them as far as gassers go.

Well

Since your first ford is a 7.3 it will probably be your last. Youll have it for ever.

DEENO,
THANKS FOR THE COMMENT. NOT MANY PEOPLE LIKE US MECHANIC TYPE PEOPLE. THEY SEEM TO THINK THAT WE ARE ALL RICH AND CHARGE TWICE AS MUCH AS THE REPAIR IS WORTH. FEEL FREE TO HALLER ANYTIME YTOU NEED SOMETHING. I SPEND MOST OF MY TIME WORKING ON GAS BURNERS, BUT I DO WORK ON THE OCCAISIONAL "ROD KNOCKER".
