Welcome.

I agree with the advice to get a monitor.

This is a great site and a helpful kind community of people. I didnt know how great and helpful these guys were till digging around on other forums for help on other cars and most other places there's not much help and a lot of resentment to new guys. With little patience for simple questions. But you won't find that here.
Ask all you want learn as much as possible and you'll be fine.

I have an edge cts, I like it, it is great for heads up display, but the scan guage seems to be able to give you much more info for diagnostics. Once you get a monitor, check your deltas, and go from there. Next I would suggest a coolant filter, ipr full flow coolant filter is the best on the market. I have the xdp bypass coolant filter. Next I would suggest, checking fuel pressure, and installing the blue spring update.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

I have a scangaugeII in my truck. everyone on here will prolly say Edge CTS but its a little pricey. Recently another one is the DashBoss.

Either one will give you the info you need. The Scangauge is the cheapest. and will display alot of info but not as much as the CTS

Info on scangauge

http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/general-6-0l-discussion/257250-scan-guage-ii-s.html

DashBoss info

http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/general-6-0l-discussion/239295-dashboss-monitoring-review.html

I would do the blue spring asap. its easy and only takes about and hour or so to put it.

After that i would do a coolant filter and coolant change to an ELC coolant like CAT brand

Once your get a montior of some sort you can see what steps you need to take next.

Hope this helps

Also get some gauges ie pyro,fuel pressure,boost, trans(if an auto)

Also the scangauge you can check and clear CEL
