TOP 10's

So im still pretty new to the powerstroke world, and these trucks are more and more fascinating the more i learn about them. My question/request would be for a standard "TOP 10" of things to modify on these trucks.

Example Catagories:

Top 10 things to do to you truck that cost 10 bucks or less.
10K resistor
Dump the exhaust before the tire
etc
etc

Top 10 under 500
Gauges
Billet Grill
Chips?

You get the pic. I think it would be pretty useful and cool.

First of all I wouldn't bother with a 10K mod, just save the $ for a real preformance tune!!

Let's say Mods from Free to $50:

Fumoto Valve = $25
Marinco Mod = $25
Zoodad Mod = FREE
Fuel Pressure Shim = FREE
Walker BTM = $40
DIY Tymar = $75
Upgraded Light Harness = $60



Best Mods for $51-$500

CCV Mod = $85
Coolant Filter $60
6.0 Cooler = $200
Leveling kit = $50-$300
Gauges = $300
Valvebody = $200+
Powerslot Rotors = $350 +/-
Ford AIS Intake = $200
Performance Tunes $45- Infinity!!!

Using a Marinco plug from a boat shop and relocating the plug on the block heater to the side of the bumper or other handy location. See pics in my webshots.

Better skip that Billet Grill, it doesn't make it go any faster or pull heavier loads!

Ive got one good one. Seat covers! With a truck that can last this long, the interior is gonna take a beating. I put seat covers in mine right after I bought it.

I'm relatively new to these trucks and this forum and what confuses me is when modifications are referred to with letters. IE: CCV mod. Help the new guys out and put in what the letters stand for.
