New PSD owner Introduction

Hello All, I just wanted to break the ice and say hello after many hours of reading your posts and studying your responses. I just purchased my first diesel (02 crew 7.3 59k miles Lariat that has never towed more than a trashbag till now.That will change soon.) I must admit I could get around a gas engine ok, but this is a whole new ballgame to me. I will keep on reading and studying your past posts and comments and learn as much as possible. My truck is bone stock for now. I'm not ready for chips and tuners yet(still a little leary about messing something up) but I have my eye on new exhaust and intake. Will these two mods alone make a difference the overall driveability of a truck? Wife and I just bought A 5th wheel camper(8300#) so the truck was a must. Other than camping trips , truck will be my daily driver.(2 miles to work and 2 back home). Sorry to get long winded but you know how it is sometimes. Thanks for your knowledge and letting me be a small part of this site.

Hey , thanks guys. I appreciate your responses. I will be calling on you with questions once I get the nerve up to start with the fun stuff. Once I figure out what I can and cant do (safely with no harm to truck)I will call on your knowledge to help make this(in the words of a good friend of mine) "Mutha Chicken" scream!

Welcome to the forum, sea! Exhaust and intakes are a good place to start. You can get a great quality, awesome sounding exhaust kit without breaking the bank. From what i've heard they all seem to flow and sound about the same. Just depends on who's name you want stamped on the muffler, unless you go without it. As for intakes, AFE seems to really wake up turbos, but I suggest a prefilter. Your engine will breath better and run cooler, especially when towing. They (the exhaust and intake) seem to really do their intended job once you put a chip on them.
