Re: New to the diesel game

Two main questions that must be answered first, and we can better help you:

1) What is your intended use of the truck: Heavy Tow pig, daily driver w/ lighter towing, street rod, race truck or pull truck, etc?

2) How big is your budget for modifying the truck?

With these two questions answered, we can point you in the right direction without wasting time or money, and not doing things more than once.

P.S. May also want to copy this into the OBS (1994 - 1997) section, but we can still help here as well.

New to the forum and the diesel world so please excuse me if this is the wrong forum to post this in... so I just purchased a 97 f350 7.3. The motor is a newer motor with only about 80k on it and a new rebuilt heavy duty parts tran. With shift kit, has swamps Single single shot injectors, has a 99 turbo and a performance intercooler on it. My intentions are to do a interior swap eventually but I would like to know what would be the next top three things yíall would do for performance. Thank yíall, and looking forward to this world and this forum.
