Starting to mod..

Hey guys,
I have a 99' 7.3 and I just ordered an excaliber2 from SCT. My next mod might be an intake, but my friend with an srt4 told me i should get a boost controller.. he said i can pick one up for 25 bucks. I believe my truck runs 7-10 psi stock so would this work??

anyways I would really appreciate any advice you guys can give me to send me in the right direction... i wanna tear up the streets!

Gauges and pods can run anywhere from 200 to 400 bucks. Also look into the quadzilla commander and the BD x monitor
