Need Help First 7.3 Totally Stock Need Some Upgrades!!

Well guys Ive been doing alot of reading on this forum I just could really use some help on what to do next to make some more power and make this truck really move. It is a 00 4x4 lifted with 35s.

-My question is what should I do first to uprade it!? I have about 1500 and want the best mods I can get for that amount!? What chips work well? Intake? Can I get more boost out of it? Thanks even the little tips and tricks to tune it in would be great! THANKS IN ADVANCED

Do you have any mods done to the truck already? Fill in your signature with what you have if any mods Your going to want gauges basically 2 kinds the analog gauges on the piller or digital readout that monitors all the functions you could want. You should get yourself a free flowing intake that filters well. I would then open up your exhaust with a turbo back with either a free flowing muffler or muffler delete to help lower the egt's when you either chip or use a tuner to program the truck. There is lots of options and i will let the rest of the crew point you in the right direction. Welcome to the Org
