Talking my first 7.3 powerstroke

i bought this 2000 super duty off of ebay for $3300 as a basket case. After a few headaches shes together and running. heres a link to the auction with pics of how i bought her: Ford : F-250:eBay Motors (item 250475908061 end time Aug-08-09 11:18:22 PDT)
heres some pics i took before i had the grille and rear bumper on:



Right now im happy as can be with her. come tax time im lookin to put a turbo back stack kit with the 5" bull hauler stacks,some kind of chip or programmer,and a diy intake set up. shes a little rough but that just makes it so i can mod it and not feel bad about it. If anyone has any other ideas i can do to her let them rip since im a newbie with diesels.

not to bad we were actuallly suprised how easy it went together(could be shear luck to). the only thing that took a little bit was bleeding the hpop system. other than that it was pretty easy.
