2000 7.3L cheap mods?

Does anybody know of any cheap mods that will help a 2000 7.3L? I had a friend tell me somethings but I can't remember what they were. Also if anybody has any aftermarket items that would fit please let me know.

Intake. Homemade or bought. Wicked wheel. Exhaust. Chip. All that there together would be well under $1000. And you would have a sturdy platform to grow off of.

just cut the muffler off that will help a little, delete the ebpv valve, delete aih, 6637 intake then buy a chip

What they said...thats about all you can do on the cheap side. It will give you a nice base platform though.

Re: 2000 7.3L cheap mods?

If you're doing a chip, you should get gauges

'03 7.3L SWB CC 4X4 DI Competition long block, Gearhead tuned 6-pos chip, FFD 250/100 injectors, SRP1, 38R, BTS, Newton traction bars, usual supporting mods.
13.49 @ 100.9mph 1/4 mile

custom compounds, and 400/200's in the works. Maybe even some giggle gas.

True. That way if your having issues you will know whether or not it's boost related. Or fuel pressure related if you get a fuel pressure gauge.

It assists in the reduction of surge, still not performance... I have the WW for surge, and it does not cure it all the time ... ATS shroud is the way to go ,,, Im going that way, pullin the WW putting stock wheel back when the I get the ported shroud ....
