New to me 7.3

Howdy all!
Just got a 2001 F-250 7.3, it looks pretty stock. Has 182000 & is my first diesel truck. I am looking for advice as to the best mods/ upgrades for optimal performance. Thanks!

Re: New to me 7.3

Well, not too crazy. I commute around 100 to 120 miles a day round trip and usually have a full load of tools in the bed. I want a mileage boost and power when I need it for the occasional towing and off road fun

It put it on there b/c itís so cheap. Routes behind the serpentine belt. Just Incase you do any maintenance and need to remove your serpentine belt you wonít lose any coolant.

Iíve never had one break on the road but others had and it was a bitch to change with the coolant hose in the way.

Thereís a kit online but it was like $70 and knowing me, Iím cheap so I found a deal with just the hose.
