Well I've got a new old 1999 f250, 7.3 6spd. Love it.

My top mods I'm thinking are a straight pipe in place of the muffler (looove the sound), some sort of intake, then a chip/tuner.

Whats your thoughts and input?

1. is a straight pipe good enough in place of the cat? Or would a whole new exhaust (bigger) be better?

2. what kind of intake works well/sounds well on these?

3. which tuner/chip for my psd?

And any and all other input is welcomed!!

I have a 4" turbo back with a muffler. I wouldn't want it any louder!

DIY Tymar (open filter element) works well.

I have a Tony Wildman (TW) chip and love it. Can't go wrong! :thumb:

Good call on the DIY Tymer setup.. I'm gonna probably end up doing this.

I LOOOOOVE the sound of a nasty straight pipe 7.3, the best sounding motor in the world next to a flowmaster 40 series 5.0.

What kind of power does your chip provide you with?

Ya I'm thinking I'm just gonna cut the cat and muffler out and run straight pipe. Will this make an impact on inspection? I've never owned a diesel, therefore I dont know what inspection is like.

Thanks for the nappa part number. I'm gonna do that tymar/nappa deal. Ahhh I wish it was morning and not wet out; I want to go for a spin!

Bragg is a long way from me. I am an hour south of Asheville. Had you been closer, I was going to suggest just that. I even have a filter I was going to give you. I switched from the NAPA (I actually used a Baldwin) to a tapered AMSOIL filter (see my signature). I believe it takes in more air because it is not squeezed in between the battery, fender, fuse box and hood.

Have fun with the mods.

Is yours an early or late 99?

Asheville NC??? I was just there last weekend buying an Escalade actually. I've always wanted to go to the Land Rover manor over in there.

But you should definitely invest in hooking me up w/ that filter ;)

How do I tell if it's a late or early PSD?

To determine if your truck is an early or late 1999 model year, locate the tag on the drivers side door. Vehicles built before 12/7/98 are considered early 99 and vehicle built after 12/7/98 are considered late 99. Late 99s are pretty much the same as 2000-2003 but there are differences in all the models.

ah ok I'll check tomorrow morning.. thanks!

Have a good one. I need to hit the sack. First light will find me pulling and replacing the half axles on my wife's Impala. Re-doing the brakes too.

Nice chatting with you.

Later.
Ok good night man. I doubt I'll get any sleep tonight. I'm like child waiting to open his gifts Christmas night.

But good luck, its been nice chatting. If you decide to part w/ that nappa filter let me know :p

The filter is used. I figured if you were near here I would show you my set up and let you have the filter as a parting gift. :hehe:

I ran it for several months and then switched to a tapered AMSOIL filter. i believe I have more filter surface area available because of it not being crammed in there. The big filters have to be squeezed in.



I recommend the HankDaddy:thumb: too! Named it after me! :nod: I didn't like the idea of cutting a big hole in my support and then trying to figure out how to put a screen over it. Some folks just leave a big hole?

Wow. So I just checked the underhood out again getting a real close look at things. I noticed the air restriction gauge was maxed out so I checked the filter. W.O.W, and I dont mean World Of Warcraft.
That thing is FILTHY. It's got so much **** in it and the orange filter is more like black. Instead of just buying a new stock filter I'm going to just do the Tymar filter.

Who can deny the performance/economy and most of all the SOUND differences with an open filter?

be sure to get gauges before u get to far into mods, its a good idea to do before a tuner or chip. I have the diy intake and i just cut the muffler out and welded a pipe in place, love the sound. Im just saveing money to get my gauges and pillar pod in:thumb:

I ya like you said I'll probably do that before I get the tuner. Not before the exhaust and intake though; I need to get these mods rolling!

A cat/muffler delete is a great money saving way to go that works perfect!

A Napa 6637 filter and a four inch piece of pipe is great for an intake. Works perfect also!

A Tony Wildman seems to be the most popular chip for our trucks!
