99 7.3L 4x4

I don't know much about diesel trucks seeing how I am only 19 years old, so I was wondering what kind of advice you guys could give me in regard to exhaust a chip/tuner and a intake system. And if there are any other kinds of upgrades that are simple and not real expensive to do feel free to let me know. I appreciate the input

welcome, and I appreciate you being humble rather than "my buddy said"... on that note Clover is correct, do some light reading via search because these guys have made the mistakes that you can learn from.

Search around for different custom tuners. Pick up the phone, call them directly. Then decide who you want to run. Most guys have only tried 1 or 2 then theres others who have dam near tried them all

ts standard tunes arent that great.

most custom tuners use the same ts 6 pos chip and put their tunes on it.
