First loose the idea that more smoke and power go hand in hand. Smoke is wasted power shooting out you exhaust. Its nothing but unburnt fuel. First thing I am assuming you are on stock injectors. Loose that bully dog programmer that has generic tunes and pick up a custom tuned flip chip from one of the custom tuners on here. The dif is night and day. Matt at gearhead, [email protected]

Swamps, etc..their are a number more. These guys will not only get you more power but better trans shifting and even better MPG
. Lower EGTS
as well. Over all drivablity goes way up. Not sure what else you have done other than the Air dog which was a good choice. But you need to get a set of gauges trans temp, EGt
, turbo boost at a min. If you have a stock air box swap it out for a DIY
using a 46637 is the cheapest with very close to the best flow. Next a turbo back exhaust. MRBP 4" is very nice and with good pricing for different levels of quality. After that you are looking at an upgrade from the stock turbo to a GT38R. Follow that up with some stage II or small hybrid injectors. After that then you will want to look at that upgraded HPOP
depending what year 7.3 you have. For that the nest choice is the Adrenaline by Diesel site. ALso some where in there you may need to upgrade your fuel system a bit.
But again first loose the bully dog and get custom tunes and get the basics if you have not already done so first ie exhasut air gauges. If you already have those. Then go onto the turbo and injectors .
