Hello! First post...

This looks like a great board! I just bought an 03 E-350 PS after I got tired of the fuel economy with my 00 E-350/5.4. I build houses, so I carry a lot of tools and need to haul a lot of lumber at times.

Recommendations for economy/performance mods would be great. What are the first mods I should make? New to diesels, had a bunch of 5 liter Mustangs. Also, what makes a PS in a van different from in a pickup? I know there is no intercooler. I did search, and I am sure the info is here somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Thanks!!
