New to Diesel and New to the Forum

Hello from Oregon.

I am new to the diesel world having just purchase a 2003 F250 with the 7.3 liter motor last weekend.

There is a lot of information on the web giving advice for maintenance and performance upgrades. It is almost overwhelming to go through all of it.

Other than personal experience, what other tried and true resources do you use? I am fascinated by the possibility of "unlocking" the performance of this motor, but am also not wanting to jump in and risk destroying the thing.

If any of you have a trusted mechanic in the Portland area, let me know about them.
