New Excursion Owner

So I jumped in water and ventured into the Excursion hype. I have a 2003 6.0 Excursion. It has an EGR delete that the previous Owner had done. The only thing I've done to it is put an S&B cold air intake on it. I've bought a coolant filter along with an aluminum gas bottle from dk engine parts. I'll see if this link to a picture of my truck works...http://imgur.com/a/7ifrldz

That's a good looking truck! The PO was nice enough to put on the newer mirrors and 20s for you (also the powerstroke badge adds 5hp!). There was a post on here somewhere about the cap coming with the aluminum degas bottles not performing to OEM specs, I believe it was a Mishimoto, so that'd be something to look out for (it was either here or on PowerstrokeNation, and could have been an isolated incident). The best upgrade I did to my Ex was adding a rear sway bar, made a world of difference. Enjoy it, and I hope you've already got something like the Torque app or Forscan running gauges.

Thesoulless thank you, Yes, the PO or the dealer hooked me up. I want to get a cts2 insight to be able to monitor every and I have looked into the torque pro app. Another update that I want to do is the blue spring. I don't know if it already has it. I guess the only way to find is to to take it apart.

If you're able to check fuel pressure that will tell you if you need it, just make sure you check while driving - the pressure will dip as the go pedal is pushed but shouldn't get below 45psi. I did the blue spring, but the kit was by Dorman and I may swap it out for an OEM one, my fuel pressure reads in the mid 80's. I can' speak for the Insight, I had an old cellphone lying around (I buy cheap phones) and use that for Torque and Forscan.
