Hey guys, anything I can do to up the power on this truck a little bit ? Going back & forth from a tuned 6.7, to a 7.3, there is quite the difference.
The truck has a built transmission with a triple disk converter, and supposedly a superchips tuner (however it feels stock) if that helps.

How many miles on the truck?
What do you do with it? Say 75% of the time?
You can out power the 6.7 pretty easily (expensive), or you can get a decent bump in power ( somewhat less expensive).
Basic upgrades, no matter what you're doing with the truck are intake, exhaust, and updated tunes. Superchips hasn't made a decent tune in 10 years for a 7.3.
Those three are under 1k, and should bump you over 300 hp, pretty easily. Assuming, of course, that the truck is in reasonable decent mechanical condition.

250k miles on the truck. This is a farm/work truck, but is also driven unloaded. I use the truck to haul livestock , firewood atvs etc. This truck will not haul anything heavy.
The truck is overall in very good shape, both body wise and mechanically, hence the reason I bought it.
With the trucks age and mileage, which tuner do you guys recommend. (Was interested in the DP tuner).
