Make Me Faster

A few of my friends are into racing their Deisels, well they are in such competition with each other. I have a 1999 ford 7.3. I am thinking about trying to keep up with them. What can I do. It has four inch exhaust now and I think a superchip. I dont have much money but what is good?

I have to say Dp will get you more HP then Superchips But you will need to finish up with the basic first an intake and gauges. If your on a tight budget try our DYI intake and a Custom Flashed PCM from DP-tuner instead of a chip. As for gauges at the very least your going to want a Pyrometer to keep and eye on exhaust temps.

Is that an early '99 or late '99, how fast are you looking to go, do you tow with it, and most importantly, what's your budget?

Project 2: '86 Toyota regular cab, motor by Diesel Innovations (713/984-9441); nick-named the Fordota

Project 3: '68 Ford Ranger, regular cab, short bed, 2wd; inserting a 6.0 with engine work done by Logan Schneider, nick-named UglyTrk
