No, the hardest part was putting the new, much larger downpipe up into the engine to mate the turbo.

Roughly 2 hours and that was going very slow.

I bought the power bundle from http://www.stealth-automotive.com

The diesel go to guys at Hallis performance in Romeo told me to take the muffler off my stock exhaust on my 99 7.3 and run it. That alone made a diference the turbo spools up alot faster . Then I added a edge evolution programmer and now it pulls my trailer loaded without downshifting with on ton of power. I average around 11.5 mpg loaded.

The edge will kill your trans because it doesn't do anything for it. If I was you I would sell the edge and get a custom tuned chip from either DP or Tony Wildman.

I have a 7.3L and yes it's an MBRP.

back in my powerstroke days I heard that the DP or the TS chip was a good setup on the 7.3L. Kind of like the SCT tuning for the 6.0L....or the PPE or EFIlive for Dmaxs

every where that I've done research it says that if you have the auto you don't want the edge stuff. I'd use it since I have the stick. The Powerstroke forum recommends selling it and geting a custom tuned chip from DP or TW which also accounts for the trans.

I really wanted to do a AFE or the SB intake but I couldn't justify it over the DIY tymar. Do you know love the sound of your jet fighter . . . I mean turbo truck

ya, i plan on getting a programmer to do up the trans soon, and then ill put a new valve body in the trans so that'll keep things happy.

Your right about the edge juice it doesn't do anything for your trans you need to add a trans kit with that programer. The evolution on the other hand recalibrates the motor and trans to work together. I ran a superchip up until this year and was happy with it. I asked a Ford diesel Mech, Who also has a diesel performance shop and he recomended this chip from personal experience. This guy has been in DP magizine he goes to the diesel shootouts and competes so I trust what he tells me. the cool thing about Hallis is he tell you if your wasting your money!
