Now you are thinking in an adult manner. Myself and others are just trying to save you from a huge repair bill you will never be able to afford. Internet was non-existent when I was your age and places like this could have saved me a good deal of money and repair time.

As for the filter. Do what you have to for now, but do some research on K&N. They are the biggest due to marketing, not quality.

If you want to save money and get a good filter, research the DIY intake which uses the 6637 filter. There have been MANY posts regarding places to purchase them for a very good price. It's the filter many here, myself included are using.

As far as gauges go, a good set shouldn't cost more than $400 or so and they definitely aren't hard to install yourself. Another money saving tip, start learning how to do all the things yourself. Labor these days is very expensive. Besides, just about everyone here will be more than happy to help you out when they can. You may even think about putting your location under the account settings so if there is anyone close they might be willing to stop by and help.

Hmmm, I'll try to remember where they were. I'll post a link if I can find them again. Let me know if you end up with the ones from amberjax.
Here's the skinny on the K&N. It's a cotton gauze weave impregnated with oil. You've seen gauze bandages, it's not a really tight weave. Until the filter gets some dirt in it to narrow the passages, the smaller stuff (dust) passes right through. I happen to like them on naturally aspirated motors but turbos just pull too great a volume of air! Another, not the best, option is to use a pre-filter until you can afford what you really want. The pre-filter is basically a sock that slides over the filter element.

Ok, I checked out SLAPS and didnt see any gauges. Do I just need to give em a call? Also I might be able to get gauges wholesale from napa, bc my instructor owns a machines shop.

The gauges that I have that are for sale on SLAPS are white faced ISSPRO gauges. Pm me 99 powerstroke if your interested in them. This will be a better link to see the gauges.

You can get by with just an EGT gauge to begin with if your tight for money. A boost gauge is mostly for fun and unless your doing some heavy towing or snow plowing you're probably going to be ok without the tranny gauge for a while.

As to your original question, I'd look into getting some PHP tunes put onto your chip. Lots of people are really happy with their tunes. My 2 cents worth. Power Hungry Performance - Feed your hunger for POWER! Check out our Gryphon Programmer for Ford vehicles!

ive been running the power pup on mine on the 75 setting with guages, built tranny and a few other things. It does good but was wondering if i could get somebody to reflash it with custom tunes or do i need to buy a whole new thing. I live really close to swamps and not so for to beans in TN.
