Whats a Powerstroke??

Haha..just kiding im not that ignorant. But seriously ive only owned cummins and only know cummins...my truck is getting sold next week and i found a 99 or a 00 "not for sure yet" powerstroke 6spd. Ive been reading the 7.3 threads tryn to catch up on these trucks but still dont know them as good as a dodge. I have quite a few questions so everybody just give your oppinion.

whats the difference in a early 99 and late? Ive also read alot about different pcm's in these trucks, which do i kneed? Everybody seems to be leaning toward the F-5, is this the best chip for an auto or 6spd? or does it not matter? I had planed on getting the 5 position from TS because a buddy had one on his truck and it would haul a**! But another friend has it on his and it hasnt impressed me yet...so just tell me what all i kneed to know if you dont mind

You want Dp Tuner.

Get the F5 and get some gauges. Pyro, Boost, and Trans Temp if you get an auto.

I would rather have an auto but it will need a rebuild at some point if you push power through it.

early vs late 99 is a little smaller injectors and a little smaller turbo. 94.5 - 2000 (part of 2000) has forged rods and are good to about 500 RWHP
late 2000-2003 are powdered medal rods and are good only to 400-425.

why are you selling your dodge?

the truck is just getting old to me...i love the truck and it has some great power for a 12 valve, but i like the looks of a ford alot better! this truck im looking to buy is a single wheel f350 has 145k miles and a manual trany..I know injectors and clutches run alot more for these than a dodge, but will they hold up if i was to get a Dp tuner? Because if i had to replace either one id be broke!

The injectors will "hold up" fine with a chip. I like my SuperDuty and it is twice the truck compared to the Dodges I've had, but you are going to spend a lot more money for the power compared to the trusty 12v.

I second the vote for DP-Tuner, out of everything I have run Jody's tuning is the best. Make sure you tell him you have a 6sd though, if you run the auto tunes they can be a bit touchy with a manual.

Clutches are the same price about, about a grand for a Dodge or Ford SouthBend setup.

Ah, the clutch will probably not last long with a bunch of new found power, but it'll still live if you drive it nice. I'd just count on doing a clutch at some point, especially since you don't really know what condition the clutch in the truck is in.

You can get a southbend CON FE for just over 800 shipped.

For the intake. You need a 6637 filter (fleetguard, baldwin, etc)

Napa PN is 46637.

a short 4" piece of pipe, pvc, etc, and a 4" clamp. You can get one from a semi shop, get a 4" CAC clamp.

He meant Napa number 6637 or Wix number 46637 :

CAC clamp is a Charge Air Cooler clamp.

You just need some sort of T bolt clamp because the filter is very stiff. You can get the filters cheapest at fleetfilter.com around 25 bucks. The filter is about 12" long and 8.5" diameter.

Here's a link to the specs.

Dont forget to round up a 3.5" muffler delete pipe or put on a Walker BTM. The stock muffler is very restrictive on the SD trucks.
