Wow that thing looks nice! Im not sure about the rims, but they kind of grow on me.

Looks like the exhaust is stock too!

Of course mine was stock and when I went to install my chip I could see where they broke the box installing a chip

Makes me spend money

I can tell you right now you need a 5 inch exhaust, TW chip, and gauges at minimum.

yea im hoping to find one with all those mods done but i do plan on doing them eventually.
my buddy that makes biodiesel has 5in exhaust, banks intake and intercooler, and the banks tuner with the pda so no need for the guages and he gets well over 500hp with his 06 f350 dually and when he had his 06 f350 SRW with same mods lifted and 37s that thing hualed *** for a big truck with huge meats

Don't get the Banks crap for the 7.3 and you will not be seeing that much power.

A stock 7.3 with exhaust, intake and a good tuned programmer will be looking at 300HP.

my dad has a 93 F350 1 ton dually 7.3L diesel non powerstroke. we drove from our house to airdrie alberta and back all highway and it got 17mpg.. it gets 17mpg doesnt matter if its pulling something or not.. its straight piped exhaust..

i know your looking at the PS but the 7.3's have plenty of power, dad hauls a 10.5' camper on his truck from april to october every year, plus tows a 16' tandem axle cargo trailer both at the same time and its fine.. its an automatic and it searches trying to find the right gear going up hills.. but you hit the OD and it goes.

i have a friend that has a 97 ish F350 7.3L turbo diesel powerstroke and he has no problems.. its a crew cab. also have family friends with a lifted 97 F350 power stroke crew cab sitting on 35's.. nice truck has a 4 inch straight piped exhaust and is chipped.

i love the 97-03 powerstrokes as well and wouldnt mind getting one eventually. im not a fan of the 6.0L diesels too many problems for my liking.. dad's work has an 05 F350 6.0L diesel and that thing has spent more time in the shop getting fixed then on the road.. and the ****ty part is that you cant fix them yourself..

i was looking at craigslist around my area tonight and found a few 04+ supercrew 4x4 gasser for under 25k but i could get a 99-03 F350 7.3L turbo diesels for under 20k. some of the diesels has 120k miles on them though.

I think TC chips and custom programming are the big hit right now. But I am not 100% sure

thats what ive been seeing alot on powerstroke forum
and from what i read 4in exhaust is the same as 5in as far as power and mpg increase but the 5in is going to be louder
now whats the DIY intake? is that like with rangers where you pull the snorkel out or is there more to it

IMO 5 inch sounds and look better

Without detail....DIY intake is just taking the stock airbox off and putting a cone style filter on it.

yep just checked it out pretty easy and just with some work it could look like an aftermarket intake for a lot less.

overall how do you like your truck?

I love it overall. I just hate winter!!!! It sucks plugging it in every night. I bought it knowing it needed ball joints, tie rods ect, but I didn't know I was going to have over $1k in parts lol.

I do not have a chip on it right now and I hate it. Its SO slow. Even normal accelerating it is stupid slow. Put a chip on it and normal acceleration is so much better. Im well over 2,000 RPM trying to keep up without my chip.

I have not really had a chance to pull too much weight with it. I pulled my Jeep home and it had a couple hick ups but I think that was my fault.

Overall I love my truck, just wish it was a little faster and could blow more smoke, but that is not needed. I am sure if I owned a dodge I would say the same thing

This summer I will know how much I really like my truck when I can wash it, wax it, have the windows down and hear the exhaust and turbo whine

well i just found out Commifornia is making diesels get smog checks, which is BS, they do a visual check to make sure no intake or exhaust mods have been done, check the OBDII port to see if any chips or tuners are being used or have been used, and they run the truck rev it up and see if smoke goes more than 10ft from the tail pipe.

so whats the point of having a diesel if i cant get the most out of it, we all know stock diesels are no fun to drive lol

so im back to the decision of gasser or psd
i need the crew cab and at least a 6ft bed so the f150 is out of the question. and with a f250 with the 5.4l might not be powerful enough for that big of truck. and im NOT getting the v10, any other suggestions

Do you mean 5.5' bed? They never came with 4.5' bed lol, thats a sport trac. The 5.5 is the common size for the Screws but I've seen 6.5 ones too.

That sucks!!!!! Looks like gasser it is lol

I was just going to post that I am driving my car again vs my truck. My truck is costing me $100+ a week in fuel and then $60 oil changes every 3k is not that great either.

My car gets 26MPG and cost under $20 to change the oil. So I am going that route.

With that said I do not regret buying the PSD.
