Inexpensive tricks/mods for 7.3L

do you guys have any secrets? I'm tired of spending 200-1000 dollars on this **** . I hear of some people telling me these little nick nack tricks. one of which I did, plugged the line to the wastegate and removed it, slapped a turbo fooler on and got about 5 extra psi.

Ditch the K&N filter and go to the napa 6637 mod that if the filter number for napa fleet has them in the Baldwin line PA 2818 you won't dust your turbo with either of these filters. Just my .02

I've heard that one can use the K&N box with the Tymar filter.

no its a HUGE filter in place of your air box. More air and louder turbo sounds is a side effect. Look up DIY intake in the mod section

Your K&N just set you up for about $2000 in mods... In a new turbo to replace your dusted factory one.
His sig says he already has a shimmed fpr...
