Re: questions before i buy

Exhaust and intake is better than stock. Depnds on how much better you want. Regulated return is always an improvement as well as turbo. If your planning on injectors gonna need a chip also, and depending on what size injectors you may need a better HPOP.

2003 F-250 CCLB 7.3L
4" lift and PMF traction bar/block setup running 35s on 20x12s. Intake, exhaust, PHP Hydra w/ Gearhead tunes, gauges
2005 F-350 CCLB 6.0L
6" lift on 20x10s and 37s, studded, deleted, Powermax and Livewire with Quicktricks tunes, exhaust, intake (Wife's Truck)

Re: questions before i buy

Depending on how much money you Want to spend really depend on how much better than stock your gonna go. If you don't need the extra power for what your doing with it I would get and intake exhaust and Tuner then leave it alone. To me after you upgrade your injectors your gonna keep finding yourself wanting more and when you get to the point of needing a bigger hpop to run your injectors it gets pretty expensive pretty quick.

Re: questions before i buy

first of all the best update to an e99 is get a new cup holder...hands down my favorite upgrade.

the next best was a pmt pcm since mine was an auto.
followed by the chip.

your airbox probably has broken tabs and needs to be replaced..i recomend s&b afe2, ford ais or a napa 6637 type.

realistically unless your injectors are done i would do a chip intake and exhaust first.
have a look at a d66 turbo from beans. and ask swamp or bean about that comboed with that turbo.

otherwise i would go straight to a h2e or qssb style turbo and mount.
100% waste of cash to get a 1999.5 turbo setup even with a gt38r for an early 99

Early 99 f350 4x4 crew cab, auto. pmt2 pcm
2001 cup holder ,T500, MAX AC ASSIST AC mod, Diy Twin tymar, TS chip, Powerslots & Hawk pads, ford AIC, ..... with big fat want to list.
