Hey Guys (and Gals). Long time 2002 X 7.3 L owner. Only 125000 miles on it. Recently had to sell Harley Davidson due to health issues and now I find myself with 10K to put into the X. Help me put together a $6,000-10,000 performance package.
Thanks,
DrrlB

Well Greetings DrrlB..
Welcome to the TDS Excursion forum...
Kinda nice to see some new blood around here and liven up this dyeing forum...
I would guess the first question would be...What are you going to be using your X for, to enhance
your performance mods...?????

I would look at a Dp tuner chip,a cold air intake ,a 4" exhaust system( I prefer the Silverline setup,I have a Mbrp on my new one and don't care for the tone.) And a good gauge package if you don't have one. Hellwig sway bar if you dont have a sway bar on the rear.

Thanks Graupp,
Primarily looking to have fun, go fast and blow smoke. Otherwise, I will be using the truck as a secondary vehicle and for occasionally pulling a boat

Greetings again drrlb
Many of the things BlueOx1 said would help to do what you might want...
The weak link in the truck is it's transmission...
I've got 275,000/ mi on mine, and it's on it's 3rd transmission...
The 7.3 L. is a great engine, but you have to be careful how much power you put to the tranny...
Then you'd need a 6.0 tranny cooler and maybe even a better torque converter for the tranny...
And then you've got to have gauges to measure what's happening...
Once you start the modding , it has a tendency to snowball out of proportion...
The guys over at Ford Truck Enthusiasts [FTE] Excursion website have done HOARDS of modding on their various
Excursion models..
You can spend that $6-10,000 easily ...
The list is to long to list here....
