IDI Performance

So I thought I would bring this up because I've seen a lot of people looking for upgrades for their 6.9/7.3 IDI and not knowing where to start or where to turn to.
Also most people who have an IDI truck don't have a lot of money to spend on modify there engine, so FREE AND CHEAP mods are key.

So those of us that know these mods should share our info here for others to have...



I found this site to be EXTREMELY Helpful for me when I started messing w/ my old IDI Truck it has a lot of free and cheap mod articles:
Ziggster's page


Also I found this site today, they seem to offer some good parts for IDI engines:

I ran a Hypermax cowl induction duct on my old 93 7.3 na, it is meant for their turbo kit, but fit perfectly on my no turbo soupbowl deleted truck. it routes cold outside air from the cowlvent(at the base of the windshield) into the stock air filter housing. It was cheap, I do not know exactly how much though.
