Newbie from CA - Just bought '01 Ex.

A quick introduction - I've been on the forums a while, but finally bought a '01 Excursion 2wd 7.3 last week. Overall, a very clean example with 199k on the clock. Runs like clockwork, but I need to go through all the fluids since I don't know what was done last (auction vehicle).

I live in CA so i have to deal with the smog nazis, but I'm already looking at some mild uprades to make this thing more driveable/increase fuel economy:
*DP tuners tune
*Ford AIS

Am i missing anything that's cheap/cost effective? I've searched and driven myself crazy, finding everything from ATS housing upgrades and Zoodad mods, to lift kits and removing the foil on the turbo piping :-)

Thanks for looking!!
