Do a search to find alot of good info.
But I would start with
Coolant flush and install a coolant filter
Sct tuner with any good tune from a vendor
Some gauges or cts
Also make sure you up keep on regular maintenance. Ie (oil,fuel filters) use only motorcraft!

do the blue spring upgrade and install a fuel pressure gauge. if you get the sct which is the best and safest tuner, get a 4in exhaust. switch to some 5w-40 synthetic oil and get a scangauge2 or edge cts for moniroring. also, what color is the coolant. if its gold, i would flush that out with restore and restore+ and then put in cat ec-1 rated elc. also, pull the egr valve and clean that. check for any coolant in the intake.

save your money, get that "tune up in a can stuff",, put seafoam in the tank, in the crank,fresh oil, filters, and a block heater for them ND nights.
