Just bought a (kinda)new 6.0L

Hi, I'm kinda new here.

I just recently bought a 2005 F-250 FX4 for a pretty good price.

Turns out it was an old nextel fleet truck, although it's in excellent condition.

I just want to do a few modest modifications to it (intake, exhaust, chip) and throw a set of new tires on it (the 265 toyos it has are on their way out)

Which upgrade should I start with? I've heard that if you throw in a chip before the exhaust and intake that it could possibly screw stuff up.

Also, has anyone tried to fit 305s on their stock 17x7.5 rims?

Thanks in advance!

Weclome to the Org! Start off with a 4" Turbo back exhaust with no cat. You dont need a intake as the stock one will be sufficient up to 500hp. As for the tuner, get a custom tuned SCT by Eric, Cale or whoever. Now the FIRST thing you need before any of the other stuff I have said is gauges:boost, pyro and trans temp.

Nice truck btw

You are already ahead of the game by coming here first. the sct runs about $430 with 4 standard tunes and about $500 with 2 standard tunes and 1 extreme tune (this what you want)
