October 14, 2009Hey guys, I'm fairly new to the aftermarket realm, but i've just graduated college and just started making some money to spend on my 2002 7.3L diesel F250. I do have a superships tuner, but want to get an single exhaust system to get that distinct whistle and and roar that I hear some trucks have. Also, I want a leveling kit and new shocks(would this help the bumpy ride I am experiencing now? approx 100,00 miles)Any suggestions on brands or models that would be best for my make and model? I would appreciate any help ya'll could give!

October 14, 2009Get rid of the superchips and get a DP Tuner (DPTuner.com). Get some gauges to monitor everything. I think the trucks youre hearing are probably 6.0. I dont think you can get the whistle out of a 7.3 like the 6.0 gets. Just do a search and you will learn a lot.
October 14, 2009on the 99.5-2003 7.3 you need to replace the compressor wheel with a 99 and older one they are also refer d to as wicked wheels and can be bought for under 100 bucks, i bought one for 40 shipped off ebay. it have a different pitch to the fins and helps with the addition of a chip or programmer to reduce turbo bark. and will whistle like your looking for.
you can get a good 4" exhaust system for 250-350 bucks i like the MBRP 4" turbo back.
dont forget the air intake the 7.3 is starved from the factory so any help there will give you a increase in performance and the engine will work more efficiently.
I also recommend the DP-tuner. is is so much nicer being able to flip to the tune you want and back off in a second. either way a pyro and boost gauge is recommended.
