what do I buy for more performance?

I have a $1500 budget, however I do need more pulling power for my 2000 F-350, I pull a 4 car hauler... and just need a bit more "kick" my pulling truck is a 175K mile'd automatic 7.3L bone stock.......

'01, DRW, Cummins HO, 6spd, hrvp44, holley black, fbd 150hp injectors, edge juice w/ attitude, 4" magnaflow exhaust, Bullseye Power s362 turbo, BHAF, Valair Clutch

any more than that and that stock trans is going to go bye bye

No, but with towing, and the fact that you have 175K miles on it means it probably doesn't have a whole lot of life in it once you start adding power.

i know on my brothers 02 with a hot chip, exhaust and intake it craped out a 42k miles, so that is why i would stick with a small chip, a 4car hauler isn't light lol

Transmissions aren't very good on the 7.3s, I went through a couple when my truck was stock.

Exhaust, Air Intake, and a 4 bank chip. I would use the van Aaken chip, it can be used with the Commander Monitor so that it is adjustable and be able to watch your Egt's, Boost etc.

Performance Diesel Motorsports

5,500 RPM Common Rail Anyone??

kinda wish i would've purchased one with a manual transmission....




however i spoke with GAW Racing in Miami, Fl (i go down there a lot) and for $1475 i can get a 3 program chip, turbo back exhaust w/ 5" chrome tip, intake, transmission shift kit, new impeller wheel on my turbo... all of this installed

I think that's a good deal
