Red face help for a noob, please!

okay guys I know this has probably been ask more than once or twice. I am a new owner of a 2000 F250 7.3 which is new to me so I have a few questions... First it has a ts 6 position chip on it and straight exhaust, now i know gauges are important to a diesel so my question is should i do autometer gauges on the pillar or like an electronic screen type gauges like on the juice with attitude or whatevr... then what other upgrades should I make to it? I am not looking to make 1000hp or anything but I do want to make it have a little more balls but safely.. the TS chip is not installed its in the box so I will be installing it soon.. please hellp with suggestions, as I can not afford to mess this engine up ya know... please help me

ISSPRO is one the favorites on here I've noticed, a little more pricey than autometer but a better quality. Alot of vendors on here offer pretty great package deals on them.

As far as all digital, you could look at the Edge CTS. It plugs into the OBD port and can be had for about $350.

I'd do the edge cts. I have glow shift three on the pillar put them in a couple years ago. I should've looked more into it and just go the screen you plug into you truck. That's just my opinion though.
