First thing to do is a coolant flush, and change. Make sure to get the additive from Ford that should be added to the coolant to prevent cavatation around the cylinder walls. If you run any tuner you should put in an EGT gauge in and watch it religiously. Other than that it seems like a good set up. Remember that your truck does not have an intercooler so EGT's will rise fast. Good luck with your 7.3 PS they are great engines.
