Alright, so i'm a 6.0 guy but a buddy of mine just got his hands on a really clean '99 7.3 5spd. He's wanting to know what he can do to give it some more power. Can you guys help me out?
How much can the stock sticks make?
What cheap upgrades can be done?
heard a lot about the DIY intake, what's the process?

any help would be really appreciated guys!

Chip intake and exhaust.

DIY intake is a Napa 6637 filter and a piece of 4 inch either PVC or stainless pipe attached to the factory intake boot.

310rwhp is about max on stock sticks.

As far as chips go check out Tony Wildman PHP or Gearhead

Welcome to the site Fordgirl.

Take a look at custom tuning from Tony Wildman. Gearhead or PHP and several others.

Beyond that to get more power out of an OBS you are gonna have to spend some big money
