The Ford 7.3-liter Powerstroke diesel engine is known as an unrelenting workhorse. Whether the truck owner is hauling a heavy tractor or powering through a muddy off-road trail, the 7.3-liter Powerstroke is engineered to get the job done. Although it is a potent motor, it is capable of delivering even more performance. Here are some upgrades to help squeeze more power from a 7.3-liter Powerstroke engine.

Performance Exhaust System
The stock exhaust system is not geared toward performance. Its main objective is to minimize the amount of exhaust noise. The installation of a performance exhaust system will instantly boost the 7.3-liter Powerstroke engine’s horsepower and torque. The stainless steel design will also last for many years to come.

Cold Air Intake
Unlike the restrictive factory intake, a cold air intake is able to deliver unlimited amounts of fresh air into the engine. This makes the engine a much better performer in all driving situations. The best part is that the average backyard mechanic can easily complete the installation at home.

Upgraded Intercooler
Like most turbocharged diesel engines, the 7.3-liter Powerstroke’s turbocharger needs to remain as cool as possible. Not only will the upgraded intercooler enhance the truck’s performance, but it will also prolong the life of the turbocharger.

Power Programmer
A power programmer is a device that can alter the performance parameters of the truck’s engine and transmission. Most drivers find that the power of the 7.3-liter Powerstroke engine is being severely limited by the stock computer settings.
