We gonna need lots more info, like year, and your goals and your budget.
The standard is to get GAUGES, straight pipe the exhaust, do a DIY open air intake, and then put a good custom flip chip on it. This will make a night and day difference to a stock truck and should cost less than $1000 to do.
yea im sorry its a 00. i have a 94 bronco i was guna put a 7.3 into, and it has superduty axles
i have about no more than a grand to put into seats cause there broke down and then performance parts. i tow a little but i am gettn it cause i love diesels and wana compete a little with my buddys cummins
Manual or auto?
(May be a good time to take the time to complete your signature)
IF your buddies Cummins is stock then doing the above mods for about a grand may allow you to compete with him. If he has the right dodge mods done then your ganna have to spend a lot more than that to even begin to compete.
There are lots more things you can do for relatively cheap to make your truck a happy truck but when the mod bug bites you then you’ll be spending big on things like injectors and turbos and big oil and a built tranny. Then the dodge may still beat you.
IF it were me and I was starting over with a stock truck I’d first make the truck happy.
DIY intake with a Baldwin PA2818 $40
Straight pipe the exhaust $50
Gauges (at least the big 3) $300
Trucool 40K tranny cooler in series with stock one $120
Fuel tank and prepump filter and FPR mods $35
CCV mod $5
Then maybe a BTS tranny valve body for $250
Then I’d make me happy with a custom tuned Tony Wildman chip for about $400 and maybe add a $1 4.7v Zener to the map sensor to prevent overboost defueling.
So if it were me it would take about $1,200 to get me in the happy place again.
That’s the cool thing about modding a PSD, it’s okay to be different and do anything you want, just be sure you understand the consequences.
I went to Baldwin Filters website and put in my zip code for a dealer list then called around, best price in my area was $36 at a local parrts store 3 miles from the house. Lots of folks by the NAPA brand and some folks get them at big truck shops or tractor shops.
