New New Guy

What's up everybody? My name's Dave and I live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. I just learned about this site from a thread I was reading on SVTPerformance.com. I used to own a 2001 Lightning but sold it and bought a 2005 F350 FX4 Lariat. It's a Crew Cab. I bought it with 12,000 miles on it in April of last year and now it has over 34,000. It's a great truck and I love it. I'll try to get some pics of it when I setup My Garage.

I'm looking to put some mods on it pretty soon. Any suggestions on what I should go with first would be great. I use the truck as a daily driven work vehicle so it gets some miles put on it. Anything to boost the MPG would be awesome.

Thanks everybody!

Dave

Welcome

I'm no 6.0 performance expert but I can tell you this. You need to get an SCT for it. Thats a great start right after guages and exhaust. Oh and dont forget head studs. Your 6.0 will be with you a long time if you get her some head studs.
