First Diesel, Bring me up to speed!
I've owned Mustangs my whole life but I've sold the Stangs and bought my first Powerstroke. I just picked up a 2001 F350 (Kentucky) 4x4 7.3L Auto, extended cab, with a 6' bed. It has 153,xxx miles, the tranny was replaced under warranty just before 100k. So I'm looking for basic knowledge and advice on these beasts. I'm up to speed on the fuel filter change every 20k-ish and of course the oil every 5k.
I've heard A LOT of horror stories about chipping them especially having auto trannys, but I was thinking about an exhaust and intake, just something to let it breathe a little easier. I don't know what brands are great and what aren't. Any safe mods that improve the daily quality, I'm all ears. I don't want to do much.
Can't wait to learn a lot of knowledge on a completely different fuel system and engine all togethor, thank you to those of you who post.
