Repairs/ mods to consider on 212k 2001?
I recently bought a 2001 F350 with the 7.3 and 6 speed. Current mileage is 212000 miles. The previous owner owned it for 10 years, and gave me every receipt he had for it, down to oil changes and tire rotations. It is in very good shape, but I'm sure there are some things I should be checking on or improving to make sure that it continues that way. My primary interest is in long term reliably, and better fuel mileage would be nice. I wouldn't say no to better power if it's a biproduct of one of the other mods, but I'm plenty happy with the power I have now.
I've heard people recommend checking the fuel pressure regulator and the HPOP, how important is that? anything else I should look into?
As far as mods, I was considering getting the AIS air intake, and some way of monitoring boost and EGT. I've heard that a free flowing exhaust can help as well, any truth in that? I've also heard that a better lift pump will protect the injection pump and injectors, is that worth looking into?
Anything else I should consider?
