Any comments welcome

I'm new to the site and am still in the process of buying my first diesel truck. I have been doing a lot of reading up on the things that you guys talk about on here. I have always been a ford guy and am currently looking at an '02 F-250 CC 4x4 Lariat. I already have thought about the first things that i'm going to do to it and the list keeps getting longer and longer. Since i'm still in college I have a limited supply of money and have to keep the mods at a minimum for now. I think that i'm going to buy a kit from RPM outlet with a 4" SS exhaust from turbo back, a S & B intake, and I'm not sure what tunner yet. From reading on here though I have seen almost everybody talking about the DP tunner and I still need to look at those a little more. Also I was wanting to know if anybody had any experiance with the JOBE performance intake system. I would greatly appreciate any comments you guys have. Thanks Josh

Re: Any comments welcome

The Jobe intake is a nice piece. A little overpriced though. If you're starting off with a budget go with a DIY intake. About $50

Take a look at our sponsors page and call them too. You'll get much more personalized service and better info than going with a big outlet store. Our vendors here specialize in the PSD and can steer you in the right direction.

Re: Any comments welcome

For the best bang for the buck do the exhaust of your choice, DIY intake or AirFlo's hybird intake, and a DP-Tuner F5. With an 02 you will be limited to around 400hp or so unless you pull the engine for a rod swap.

With intake, exhaust and an F5 you will see around 300-325hp at the tires and the driveability will be awesome compared to stock.

Some other choices for tuning you might consider are Tony Wildman, TS, DI, PowerHungery, pretty much any of the custom tuners, so far I like DP-Tuner the best but any custom tuning is the way to go. Stay away from stuff like SuperChips and Edge - go for something with custom programming.

Whatever you do, DON"T buy from RPM outlet. They are the biggest bunch of losers you could ever deal with. Customer service is the worst i've ever had. Shipping is beyond slow, and I've heard of more than a few people receive broken or partial shipments with no recourse. So BEWARE.

Welcome to the site!!! Give Airflo a call, I know he was having a sale on AFE exhaust systems, Intakes and have there own AFE filter and intake tube set up... Get some gauges, I prefer Isspro, but gauges non the less. You will be ok without them for intake and exhaust mods, but dont add fuel without atleast a pyro.

[CENTER]01 F-250 SC PSD,430k,16 Isspro Gauges, AFE-2,CCV Mod,IAH delete,map reg,Modded H2e, 6.0 IC, 230/100, Studs, 910 springs, Forged rods, Hydra chip, Swamps HVHF IDM, MBRP 4" dual's, Aero, 6" tip's, 4" Revtek lift, 37/12.5/16.5 MT's

Re: Any comments welcome

go to www.fleetfilter.com and get the napa 6637 air filter for $32 delivered to your door and do the 6637 TYMAR intake mod. Excellent filtration proven by used oil analysis results and the best bang for your buck when on a tight budget. Intake, exhaust & gauges before the chip.

What part of the country do you live in? there might be an tuner in your area.......

2003 F250, Wildman tunes, Faubion trns, Swamps 175/146 SS,van turbo/WW, DI Intercooler, oilguard bypass, intank & pre-pump, reg return, Firestone air bags, Bilsteins, 350 HP/692 TQ
2000 Excursion- Pwrd by: T Wildman 6 pos chip, CT Performance Suspension, Riffraff Diesel Performance, J&M Tranny, 4" MBRP, 6637 filter, intank/prepump mods

That's the stuff I've found works best too.

Re: Any comments welcome

You'll need gauges too, pyro at least. But that stuff should go on every truck reguardless of mods anyway.

Just thought I'd add Garrett is a great guy to deal with. If it isn't on his site just call him up & he can usually find it!
