Question don't have a clue?

Hi guys, just new to the forum. I like what I see so far. The only problem is there is so much info here. WOW! I'm new to this powerstroke thing. I just purchased a 03 Crewcab F350 4X4 with the 7.3. I bought it to pull my 28ft H&H enclosed trailer. My biggest goal is mileage. What mods do you guys reccomend? What type of air intake, what type of chip? what type of exhaust system? Sorry for being a pita but I have to start somewhere.

Thanks in advance

I have a TS 6 pos chip, I tow about 9000lbs every weekend in the summer
and I love it. I run the lowest setting which is 50hp. I did the air filter mod
1. PVC pipe (3" coupler)
2. 1 4.5 clamp
3. Wix air filter

Very nice, you can hear the engine really breathe. Opinion are like ***-holes
everybody has one. Also I ranged about 16mpg towing with 35"s
