i am the proud new owner of a 99 f250 sd with the 7.3 it is a std cab with a 8ft service box on the rear

i dont want to do stacks cause i dont think it would look right but looking for input on exhaust (cheaper is better im in college) im thinking of just choppin the muffler out and fabin up some stuff i did find a 4 in turbo back for like 230 on ebay dont know if its any good tho

im thinking of doing a pillar gauge pod thinking of eng oil press and maybe temp and possibly coolant temp i was thinking of egt but i dont think i work it hard enuff to worry about that (and the cost)

looking for input on chips and tuners (again here cheaper is better)

also i hear of some people talking about changing the oil in the hpop i know when you change the eng oil it is suppose to mix in with the new oil but they were saying that it doesnt i know its been posted on here b4 but was wondering what people think is it worth doing or should i just leave it be

Congrats on the truck.

The exhaust I would just do the muffler delete. You could probably get a local muffler shop to make you a piece of pipe for about 40-60 dollars.

The gauges I would for sure do the EGT gauge if you put atuner on it. Not really sure about the oil pressure and temp gauges. I think the stock ones would be fine, not doing them = less cash. Maybe someone else can help more on this.

Depending on if your truck is standard or auto. If you have a standard and want to go cheap you could get a generic tuner. Auto I would go with custom tunes because they will tune the tranny also. Either way I and most of the guys on here would reccomend to just save up and go with custom tunes and you will be much happier, because you will have tunes specifically for your truck.

Dont worry about changing the oil in the HPOP reservior. Save your time and money and apply that to more frequent oil changes. The oil mixes quickly because the HPOP is supplied by oil from the fresh oil in the pan and will mix within a few minutes of running.

If I am wrong someone with much more itelligence than me will step in.

BTW - Welcome to the org!!!!
