Cool Whats Going on Guys! NY

Hello all. Just another new guy here on the forum and to the PSD world. I am loving my new truck. a 2000 F-350 xlt lariot, auto, xcab, LB.

If anyone is near the tristate area and close to Long Island it would be great to hear from you.

I am getting ready to make some upgrades and I have roughly 1,500 for some mods.

Any ideas where the money is best spent?

Thanks alot!!

Frank

Long Island

to Powerstroke.org!

What he said about mods! 1500 will get yaa there! I reccomend the Quadzilla Commander as a guage - its more compact and it reads alot more parametes than just 3. I have one and really like it. The TS is also what i would reccomend for a tuner.

2003 6.0 F350 dually on high cholesterol fuel (WVO)
2000 7.3 Excursion also on a high cholesterol fuel

Welcome to the Forum, Frank!

With these guy's advise, $1500 can go a long way.

To POWERSTROKE.ORG



If you want to do the basics, you can use that $1500, but, if you wanted to do a little more, you could save money a few places. Do things like the DIY Tymar intake instead of a full after market intake, Farmboysdiesel usually has some of the best prices on exhaust, but his great deals on more on the Alumanized, rather than the SS. I like the TS or DP flip chips. And depending on how handy you are with some tools, you can do more for pretty cheap. But, look around and do the research before you jump in with both feet. There are a lot of options out there, so find they one that fits your application the best.
