Hello Powerstroke Forum

I am new to the powerstroke world. Up until this point I have always had gasoline trucks. I finally out grew them when I purchased my Fifth wheel in 2000. I have finally retired my gasoline truck to my son and just purchased a 2003 F250 Super Crew with the 7.3L powerstroke. I design software during the day and hunt and play golf the rest of the time. I like to tinker and have already added a new toolbox with power center and wired it through the factory wiring so it looks stock. I will soon have my Viper alarm on it and will probably add a shortwave radio as well. I need to start beefing it up as well. I will replace the exhaust first based on the advise I recieve here. I will then look at adding a chip and new air intake system. The truck is supper clean and I am getting 17mpg in the city which is great to me. I have a website with pictures if you want to check it out...

Welcome. It's interesting that diesel pickups despite weighing upwards of 1500, 2000lbs+ in most cases get much better mileage than gasoline powered trucks. It's a trend that will continue, but I think it will still be a slow one for cars.

dont forget a good set of gauges B4 you get your chip especialy since it is going to be towning! you need at the verry least a Pyrometer (Exhaust gas temp) gauge and if its an automatic a tranny temp gauge is a must along with a good tranny cooler. if its a manual the rear dif temp gauge is becoming fairly comon and a boost gauge is recomended so you know when to let out of the go go pedal if boost preasure starts getting high enough to cause engine failure its also a good diagnostic tool if your having problems that could be related to the induction system... plus its fun to watch when you stand on it
