99 Powerstroke little more go BUDGET

I recently purchased, or well I will sign papers in a couple days a early 99 Powerstroke. It is bone stock and just wondering what I can do just to give it a little more go.. Not doing injectors or turbos or any of that bs.. Just wanting a couple hints to get a little more power pulling a load. Thanks

How many miles?Chances are if they are higher miles you should replace them anyways so I wouldn't rule that out yet.Not to mention single shots get better milage.

On a budget.

Delete muffler and stick a hunk of 3 1/2 in pipe in there, about 20 bucks or so.
A shot piece of 4" pipe a couple of clamps and a6637 air filter 50 bucks or so.
A chip from a custom tuner, you can find a used one for a couple hundred or less, and have it burned for your truck.

Tricumaltor springs from DI, they are cheap and easy to install.

Re: 99 Powerstroke little more go BUDGET

If you run a chip, you will need gauges to make sure you dont damages
something with high temps. The gauges and chip are your highest costs.
Some dont use gauges, but it is your only safety net when running non-stock
tuning especially when towing.
