Hey Y'll
I just got my first oil-burner 2 weeks ago. I got myself i nice 96 powerstroke. Its got 182k on it. It also got the heavy duty tranny upgrade with a billet torque converter.

It's a great truck, but i want more power. What are some reasonably cheap mods that aren't gonna jepordize my engine life. I'm in college so $ isn't in large supply. I already have a brand new K&N Air Filter setup so i'm happy there. I really don't want to chip it because of EGT stuff and my lakc of guages.

Tell me what direction to go. I don't want extreme power. I just want some extra ponies to show the little rice burners in town what power is. remember i don't want to be throwin down money for a new motor or anything.

well you started off in the wrong direction, the K&N is crap , they will pin hole on you later, however your thougts are in the right place. If it si a drop in then don't feel bad, they're cheap. A Tymar from Dale I is your best bet, about $120 for a full open element filter.
As for chips , your stock injectors do not flow enough fuel to hurt your motor so go for it, jsut don't tow heavy on race settings.
Best thing is to read here heavily, before spendign any more hard earned $$$$$
Look forward to having lots of fun in your new truck
