Could we have a sticky for common mods?

Could we get a list going of common mods for the 7.3l Engine?
I have a 2000 f250, and the only things I have done so far are a Programmer & Napa Air filter mod. 4" Exhaust, 4.5" DR Kit and 35's are on the way. I have read about a lot of other mods, but maybe a list of things that are common upgrades to this engine. Simple to complex, cheap to expensive, benifit vs cost.........

Thanks

let me expand-

I am not a mechanic.
How about a short explination of what the mod actually does (For those of us that are trying to learn) not just a list of mods that have been done.
No offense meant, just don't know what the acronyms stand for.

Thanks

Cookie is planning a FAQ, and he'll be compiling the collective works of a bunch of us to use in it.

Stay tuned.

I think he was just giving you the names of some of the most common mods for search criteria. Most of the mods have been covered multiple times in here and search results can be extensive. When you're done modding your truck, you'll be a mechanic too. I'm a carpenter.

Giddyup Geoff, and ditto. If I can ever figure out this sump system it may be right up your alley. My criteria, cheap and effective. It also takes care of the in tank mod stuff if it works. Stay tuned, and I'm off to the shade tree.Click the image to open in full size.

Thanks Kiwk

Thanks for the consideration. I don't want to spin my wheels and spend my money for useless mods, or make the wrong choice of a mod that will affect something else I am planning to do. I guess I am looking for a list of the best mods, or combination of mods in one spot.

This has been the best Forum that I have dealt with. Thanks for your time to moderate it, and to all of the people on this board, GREAT JOB!

I would second aquaholic. I like the idea of some place easy to access that would have FAQ's or something about the mods.

It would also leave room for more questions to be answered. I've seen a few new guys slip through the first page the last few days. I hate to think they were discouraged by it. Might give some of those posts some extra time to be answered.

heh...some newbie's and there questions should just get to slip through. I've been reading on here for about 6 months now...no reason to post, there's plenty of info here to get-r-all done.
But, I thought I'd take the time here to say what's up, love what goes on here and the hospitality you guys pay to all the newcomers. Not quiet like the old days on the Import forums

That's true. There's an amazing wealth of knowledge here that everyone is quite willing to share. The ignorance level is at a minimum (unless we're in the mood) and I've never seen anyone snubbed. And like you there are people that use it as a reference tool. I know I've learned more about the truck I have now than the other 10 or so trucks prior.

Lately I've seen a few questions that weren't the normal "newbie" questions (nothing wrong with that) and needed some technical advice I couldn't give. I hate to see someone get discouraged and be afraid to ask a question. That's what this is for.

You should join in more. Every opinion and idea counts. You never know when you may have the answer that noone else does.

Yep....this is as good a place as any to compile the list. What we need are links. Links to the best threads of any maintenance procedure or modification related to the 99-03 PSD. I prefer to not use off site features/articles any more than absolutely necessary, and will not use links to any competing enthusiasts sites. "How to's" from sponsoring vendors are ok.

You can post links here...preferably with a identifier showing what general area (fuel, chip/tuner, turbo, coolers, general maintenance, etc. I'll sift through them and either start a locked sticky FAQ thread or add the FAQ section to the "guidelines/general information" thread.

Hopefully, we'll have an easy access place to point users to for specific common questions, and we'll cut down on the total number of "sticky's". Webmaster does not like too much clutter at the top of his pages, so this should help all of us out.

Info on mods

I spoke with the infamous Jody today.(Great Guy, VERY HELPFUL!) He is making a list of mods and creating PDF files to go along with them. I will see if he minds if we post them here. (Spec'd a chip while I was there, have a microtuner for sale CHEAP!)
