Looking for some more power, the chip that I have is getting out dated and it is time to get some power out of this 7.3 any suggestions?

your 02 has powdered metal connecting rods, as opposed to the forged rods found in the 94-early 01 motors. these rods are not as strong and are subject to breaking under moderate stress. nitrous and propane both drastically raise your cylinder pressures, thus putting a lot more stress on the rods. if you MUST keep the nitrous, i would recommend you have a custom tuned chip with a program specifically made to run the nitrous, with VERY little timing advance. actually, i would recommend a custom tuned chip reguardless, as it in itself would be a drastic improvement over your current edge.

Thanks for the tip, no i don't care if i keep the nitrous, it could go to. it starts to get expensive refilling everything. I would rather build the motor up with the money I would save.

I would suggest DP Tuner, Tony Wildman, or Diesel Innovations. I personally run a DP but have heard alot of good about TW and DI.
