Finally got my powerstroke!!!! 99 f250 where to start with mods

All stock. 142k/Red Reg Cab Lariat/4wd with offroad pkg and plow prep package but never had a plow/3.73 limited slip

Where to start? Dont have a bunch of money or she would get the works-lift,tires,exhaust,guages,intake.

It is an early 99(4/98).

Looks like someone has done the foil delete or it never had it.
1st My thoughts are diy intake. My grandfather is actually giving me his MAC intake at thanksgiving. Only thing is it is for a 6.0L. I figured i could make it work somehow. Any thoughts on the MAC intakes?
2nd- muffler delete pipe and possibly eliminate the cat? Any issues with eliminating both? Im hoping for Christmas to get a stainless turbo back-what would be the best choice? Also what are your thoughts on a 5"?
3rd guages and chip/tuner. How are the tuners like the edge with the guages built in?

Also how big of a tire will fit on stock Lariat rims(16") with 4wd/offroad pkg&plow prep package

Thanks for your opinions
Mike

anyone know if i buy an 06 converter delete pipe i could bolt it to my stock downpipe to delete my cat? Im thinking for know of buying the muffler delete and would like to get the cat off to but still want it to look factory for emissions purposes.

Will the cat delete pipe for a 6.0 work on my truck?
