Sorry to bring this thread back around...just my two cents...
First you will want to get some gauges so that you can make sure you are not going to do any damage and you can see how your rig reacts/runs on different tunes etc. I have the old school gauges but there are units now that are basically a screen that you can hook to display what ever gauges you want and even pull trouble codes. Then I would get your air intake and exhaust set up so it can breathe. I went with the Ford AIS unit and a 4" exhaust. Once that is done you can get tunes. I run DP tuner in my truck. I called them told them what mods I had on my truck and they made custom tunes for towing, HP, fuel economy, etc. I have it set up so I can change tunes on the fly. Here is a run down on my rig

I would join the dieselstop.com its a free online forum with tons of info and some great people. Any time I have had an issue or question about my Truck they have been there with the answer. Many times with detailed step by step info. I joined in 2004 when I bought my truck and since that time I have gotten info on everything you could ever want to know about the 7.3 Heck in 2013 they walked me through replacing my tranny (which I did in my driveway).
