2001 f-350 7.3

Hey everyone. New to this 7.3 life so if I sound ignorant don't be too harsh. I just installed the ts 6 position chip and I'm very happy with the results. However I want to give my truck a little more power without too much smoke. If I buy bigger injectors what else will I need to keep the balance of power and unburnt fuel. Also will I need custom tunes burnt into the chip I have or is there another option. Tia

welcome!
Tons of options for you
Next you should consider an intake and some exhaust, also gauges to keep an eye on things.
There are a billion injector options for you, turbo upgrades, the sky is the limit. Start by taking advantage of what you already have, let the turbocharger BREATHE

Re: 2001 f-350 7.3

Well there is a banks exhaust already on the truck, I believe it's 4" but not 100% going all the way up. And it's got the napa 6637? I think that's the number. Will I need to alter any of that?

Re: 2001 f-350 7.3

pretty much no matter what you put into the truck, it will still smoke on takeoff until the turbo spools to burn the fuel injected.
larger injectors will only be better once under power. black smoke is unburnt fuel.
tuners put more fuel into the engine. until the boost comes up it is going to smoke. that is why it does not smoke when you are easy on the throttle, because it is not stuffing a bunch of fuel into the cylinders, and the turbo has a chance to "catch up"

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

Right, however even running my ts6 at 140+ hp I'm still getting none. I'm okay with a little smoke. Just trying to decide what intake to go with first. I've heard s&b
