7.3 Powerstroke whistle w/ wicked wheel
Just listening to my turbo with the
wicked wheel installed... Actually the turbo puts out between 21-23 PSI now. And thats
not towing. stock turbo with an
aftermarket compressor wheel. same wheel as found on the stock turbo of pre 99.5 7.3's. but its an upgrade for
the 99.5-2003.5 powerstrokes. quicker spool up, almost eliminates
compressor surge, I've heard lower EGT's but im a little skeptical on that.
and of course its louder!!
Powerstroke Straight piped cold start and turbo whistle
1997 7.3 powerstroke with 2 new mods, a K&N Fipk cold air intake, and a
MBRP straight Stainless Exhaust.
Programming is stock for now and recommendations are welcome. Goals for
this truck are increasing mileage and economy while towing on the highway.
Current mileage is about 18-19 mpg on the highway, up 2.5 from when I got
it! Comments are welcome but arguments will be deleted. Thank you.
