I have an 01 Excursion with the 7.3. I had the hypertech programmer in it as it was pretty cheap 3 years ago. The only problem I ran into was keeping my foot out of the pedal and not blowing the black smoke that I love to see. I ended up taking mine out and putting it back to stock. Well since I lifted my truc and have 36's I am trying to decide if I should run it again or not. I am thinking put the Chip back in with the correct tire size to help shifting adn then straight pipe it and add an intake. Thoughts on this one? I am still n Iraq but I will be back for R&R in 3 weeks and will do all this then if the audience concurs. Thanks

I would suppose that it would depend on the purpose of the rig. That said I really have fun running my psd with small tires (285s) and lots of torque, but again i dont venture off the highway often in that unit.
heres what i would recommend-
a set of gauges-boost, trans temp ect
a shift kit such as this- http://www.swdiesel.com/index.php?ma...2a9ce3d04b65e5
a set of these- http://www.swampsdiesel.com/xtcommer...d-Street-.html
a one of these custom tuned- http://www.dp-tuner.com/index.php?p=...&parent=5&pg=1
follow that with a good exhaust, a DIY/Tymar intake and have fun until the trans gives out.

I'd Reccomend DP... Get Rid of that Canned Tunes... In that HyperTech. Get some Gauges , and A DP and you'll be set.
It will make you realize how much garbage the other one is. Night , and Day Different.
I would SAY
John Wood Valve Body (gets rids of slop in trans and will make it last alot longer)
I'd wait awhile on Injectors Though..
Also Highly Recommend Powerstrokenation.com , followed by powerstroke.org
