I'm new please help!!!???

I just bought a 2003 f-250 with the 6.0. I've never had a powerstroke. What should and what shouldn't I do to it. I would like to get some more performance out of it.

Lots of info free for the reading here so browse around and look in the 6.0 sections for lots of good stuff to answer your questions and probably raise new questions.

agreed. i would do an oil change, fuel filter change.

put a drop in air filter in the stock airbox. and go with some sort of exhaust system. theres alot of companies.

No where near the truth.

No real need to replace the intake, the stock Donaldson filter is very good.

No worries about getting rid of the cat, it wont throw any codes. I would also suggest getting a 4in TB (turbo-back) exhaust. If your looking for a little more performance, check out a custom tuned SCT.

Our vendors here are very good, check them out if your wanting to order something
