About the CCV mod thing. I know I did it and thought it was great at first and all but regardless of what others say I swear it was the last straw on the proverbial camel's back that started my oil seals leaking. I hate even bring it up because there are some pretty strong opinions about it. Buy my 2 cents worth is that if I was to do it all over again...I wouldn't. I'd just leave it the way it is and not worry about it. That money could go towards a lot more important and NEEDED items. Like the AIS filter system. That's money well spent....just don't get talked into the fender sleeve kit (it didn't gain me anything and I still had to do other mods to the front snorkel tube (like removing it completely) in order to get max airflow under full throttle conditions. Good luck and welcome!
PS Any 7.3 with under 100K is just barely broken in :-) You should be good to go for a long time if you take good care of it.
