This is my first trip into the world of turbos. What are my best mod options besides a tune?

Still waiting on '17 tunes to be available on these, so all I've got lined up so far is window tinting and bed liner. I already miss the sound of the V8, but man...this thing gets up and goes for a stock truck.

Severe lack of pictures since I got it a couple days ago...fail on my part.

Congrats! Few mods that will be good bang for the buck.
Cold air intake
Catback
Intercooler to TB pipe
Tune when available
Throttle body
Down pipes
Stage3motorsports has good pricing and if you buy a tuner you get lifetime tunes for any upgrades you do.

Did those mods to my 13 f150 eb and it woke it up! Night and day difference.

Catback alone not bad. No substitute for a v8 sound but still good. With downpipes too much better. Doesn't sound like a v6 mustang with gt exhaust. I sold my truck but if I get another same mods will be bought.

Not sure if they're new for this year...part of the STX appearance package. Dunno if I'm sold on them or not yet.

Is the stance way off or is it just how the truck is sitting?

Tints look good.

The truck is fairly raked. I mean I'm on a curbside...so it could look off a little. I have to drop the back to level it...or it won't fit in my garage lol

Time will tell what I do there

A lot of people do leveling kits to get rid of that stance.

BTW...is this thing tuned yet?

The first company just came out with a tuner for it like 2 days ago. I'm waiting on Livernois to come out with theirs currently

Doubtful on old ones from early 2000's. But newer cars yes, very much makes a difference.
