A 7.3 in an 03? It looks really sharp. ( Can't say the same for what ever that car was) Good choice on the new ride.

Hope you have your guages. EGT's will get up there pretty fast.

Things to get in this order.

Guages (EGT/Boost/Trans (if auto)) (EGT Pyro @ Pre-Turbo)
Intake
Exhaust
Tuner (your predator) or chip
BTS Valve body (Eventually a BTS Trans)

Then the other Mods.....Fuel/Oil/Turbo/Etc...

You do not want to get your EGT's above 1200* for any length of time

Also you probably have PMR rods and do not want to go above 400 RWHP, none of the above 5 will get you close.
