What general things should i do next.

I just want to change things that might need to be changed or wont hurt to change now when i got a lil money in my pocket, so something dont go wrong when im flat broke.

Im new to diesel's also.

So far i changed the oil, the fuel filter, intake filter, both battiers, the alternator, and put the Lucas Oil Products Fuel Treatment in.

What next?

Check your coolant as well. If you don't know when if was flushed last you might consider doing that soon. At the very least check to make sure your sca levels are good to stop cavitation.

removing the injector driver module from behind the inner driver side fender, opening it up and removing a resistor and soldering in a new resistor to up the injector voltage to 140v, from either 100-110v for OBS (and early 99) or 120v for late 99 superduty's. This mod took me less then an hour to do including reinstall. I didn't notice much difference but I had a 120v IDM already. It's good to know i'm getting stronger signal to the injectors plus it will help your truck startup quicker.

Local electronics supply, or digikey.com, make sure you get a 1% metal film 1/2 watt 73.2k ohm for the 120v idm or 75k ohm for the 100-110v idm
