Good!! Having the courage to get your hands dirty is the most vital part of learning about these motors! The market for chips on 7.3l is quite extensive and yes, I agree with you completely about the ability to diagnose with a programmer.
Have you thought about using a chip to tune the ECM/ TCM then using an EDGE insight for the digital gauges/ diagnosis? A lot of 6.0l guys run this package (program with one device then Gauge and diagnose with insight) it is a bit more pricey than putting it in one unit but for functionality it works well.
Not to sell you on anything, but we do offer a few things that might help. Www.phptune.com
Even if you choose to go with someone else, I will still be more than happy to offer any assistance with any questions or problems you may encounter.
I will admit.. I wish I could find a 7.3 for that price in that condition! You got a great buy!
