New To Diesels

I am new to the diesel world. I just bought a 2010 Ford 6.4 Powerstroke, pickup has forty-nine thousand miles on it. I was wondering if someone could help me get started on a decent build. I don't need anything fancy, I would just like to increase fuel mileage, have a little bit of fun, and treat the pickup right. I don't want to destroy anything with too much horsepower. I was thinking a decent priced programmer and exhaust setup. Please give me your thoughts and input on what I need to look for on the pickup. Thanks

They need to put a sticky up here.

Try posting in the section for the generation of your truck. This section people just show off, you won't get any answers here. I wouldn't want you to think this is an in helpful forum, just the guys who are helpful wont be looking in the section. Not with the intent to answer questions anyway.

I would re ask your question in the general tech section of the 6.4

Please check out my 7.3 Enthusiast Facebook group! All are welcome! LINKY

Like was said above post in the 6.4 section. I am not an expert but I do know you can delete/tune a 6.4 and make some serious hp. Good luck in your build.
