affordable and efficient performance upgrades

I recently bought a 1996 ford f250 7.3L.....wondering what is a good affordable performance upgrade. Do i start with programmers and chips or start with turbo upgrades?

Re: affordable and efficient performance upgrades

Its just a large air pump.
1. Cool dense air in (Cold air intake).
2. Hot air out ( large exaust).
3. Gauges are a must before going to the next step!
4. Move more air (turbo)
5. More fuel better shift points (chip and tunes)
6. Still not happy with it more fuel (injectors)
7. At this point may need better HPOP and fuel pump mods

Just my 2cents

Re: affordable and efficient performance upgrades

Most will start out with intake, exhaust, gauges, and tunes. Those are the basics and you will be happy with the new found performance.

Those modifications also prepare you for bigger modifications such as turbo, injectors, regulated return fuel system, and upgrading the HPOP.

We can get you going a kit that you will be very happy with. Check out our website at Diesel tuning products for Ford PowerStroke to see the products we carry.
