Question Basic Upgrades

Now that I've fixed my "deathwobble" problem (replaced the tires), I'm looking for some basic upgrades. My truck is a 2006 F350 4X4 CC LB SRW, 145,000 miles. It's my daily driver. The only thing I know for sure thats done with it is a Goose neck adapter in the back, so I can tow if need be. Just looking for the more affordable performance upgrades with neccessarily killing my wallet. This is my first diesel and now I got the bug!! Any Suggestions?? Thanks

Congrats on the fix of your "deathwobbbley" problem that can be scary at any speed. as far as any 'fix it before it breaks' things, don't know much about the 06. mine is an 03 and just by reading around on this site I have learned alot. All I can say is keep reading and good luck. OOhhh and watch out for those shady dealerships. I've had my share, the hard way.

to keep budget minded, i would suggest doing simlple things like a DIY intake, and do a straight pipe on the exhaust to help flow and lower EGT's
upgraded injectors and a chip will really put you in your seat and shoot some soot in the process. they are a bit expensive for injectors but a great power upgrade.

definitely doing air intake and exhaust. Whats a good balanced size for exhaust 4"-5"?
Also a basic programmer? are there any benefit to running stacks other than looks?

guages, 4" turbo back and a SCT X3 with gearhead or innovative tunes.

note: stock intake is good to 500 hp or so, but i did change mine out because it is the hell of a lot easier to pop off two screws for a filter then disasemble the stocker
