Exclamation 02 F250 w/ Napa 6637, Straight Pipe, and SCT Tuner

Anyone from the community can chime in with any opinions. They all count!

She's a beautiful black lariat with just over 100k miles.

I did my do-dilligence and installed the Napa 6637 intake/filter, and straight piped her.

I had planned on a ts 6 pos chip but a friend of mine pulled a SCT x3 tuner from his 6.0 before he sold it and he sold it to me for $80 bucks clean and clear. So I couldn't let it go to the wayside.

Question: I enjoy the Xtreme mode (110hp) and was wondering how safe it was on these 7.3 to ride around with it daily or on 5hour trips? I also enjoy the towing mode and street but Xtreme is a beautiful thing. I'm planning on getting a couple customs from Jody.

Anyone have any experience with these tuners on these engines and long trips/daily driving?


How about any more reasonable upgrades from this point?

Hey man welcome to the nation! You will want to look into getting something to monitor your EGT/Boost/Trans temps ISSPRO or Autometer gauges work good, try and stay away from GlowShift their sending units are S#@+. Some people use Edge CS to monitor there truck as well. As far as mods go it all depends on what you are looking to get out of your truck, is it a DD or a heavy puller? You could go with a bigger injector/turbo set-up, the 38R is a very good drop in replacement from what I hear. As far as injectors go you have plenty of choices just make sure you have the supporting mods to go with them and then get some custom tunes to make full use of them. The Sticky "Newbies looking for power" is a good read for starting out.

I dont know about daily driving on a 110hp tune, I keep mine on the 80hp economy and only turn up the heat when I want to have some fun lol, but once you can start monitioring things i would keep an eye on your EGTs and Trans temp if you are going to leave it set there. It all depends on how hard you are running her to, 110hp tune pulling some heavy weight could cause some problems, however we will need some one to chime in who has experience running a hot tune alot more than me.

I know my buddy had it in a 6.0 running the highest tune daily for 6 months. I figured if a 6 could take it mine could but I would like to see others opinion.

EGT is the only thing I can't monitor at the moment. I just drove 4 hours on the 80hp tow setting. I'm not actually towing at the moment. It will be fine? Especially not pulling weight, correct?

Just cruising you should be ok. Just don't do a lot of wot runs. If you ever want to upgrade to larger injectors later or want custom tunes. Sell off the edge and buy a ts6 or the hydra.
