In my opinion your not going to gain alot of power with those parts. For a 7.3, a good 4" Turbo back exhaust, free flowing air intake/filter and a good custom tuned chip (Tony Wildman is my choice for my truck) and some gauges are all that are needed. They really wake up the 7.3. (300hp 600ft-lb tq at the wheels)

After those mods, if you want more power look to spend many many thousands on injectors, Turbo, trans upgrade, rotating assembly parts, customized tuning...

I have a mbrp 4" turbo back, superchip, and s&b air intake, and gauges. My problem is when im towing my camper. its about 8000 lbs and when im running between 55- 70. its like my waste gate opens to early or i throw a code from overboost and my truck defuels. the wicked wheel is suppose to help the turbo on my year and if i put dieselsites wastegate and boost relief valve i can set the wastegate to boost at 25 which i have read is where you want to run a stock turbo and the boost valve will regulate my boost so the map only sees like 20 so it wont throw a code and defuel. So just trying to get an idea if anyone has done this and if it helped. thanks for the info.

I have the Overboost Annihilator from ITP, works well. I would ditch the superchip and get a real tuner from DP, Wildman, Swamps...etc.

I would never modify any electrical part of a powerstroke, as far as the "resistor mod" sensors, etc.I see alot of trucks with problems that stem from those types of things. I recommend the Dp tuner, I had a edge, superchips, once you get a DP youll never look back. For starters Id get a nice intake setup, downpipe, DP tuner, and a transgo shiftkit (its the only one I like). Dp tuner also does a ALOT for the 4r100, better shift points, firmer lockup, etc. For turbo, you can run the housing off an E-series van, if you want to stay on the cheap side. Down the road id get a converter, (the stock 7.3 one sucks). Im running a dp tuner w/ 6 tunes, intake, exhaust,trans built, stage 2's,and 17* pump. Very happy with the setup and its still daily driver safe.
