Went all in on this Limited

Hope I'm going to be alright with this buy. Its an 03, with a fairly clean Oasis. Has a new turbo from last year, along with a hydroboost. Maintained well by last owner. Has 84k. I went back over two years of treads searching for things I should have done. Didn't find what I was looking for. My question is, where do I start. I'm paranoid as heck with this, but my wife had to have it...it's hers by the way. So headstuds, head gasket or should I just go with "if its not broke, don't fix it." I don't want to dump all this money into it with changing and flushing fluids, if I should go ahead with the preventative thing with the studs and gasket. Any input will be great. So, main question...what first? I'm not concerned with performance right now. Also should I worry about this EGR cooler and whatever you 6ers have had to deal with. Thanks again, sorry so long.

Did you get quad buckets or a middle row bench? I have had mine since Thursday and I catch myself staring out the window quite a bit admiring it.
I am gonna get a egr delete and a sct tuner and run her on econ most of the time. I already bought an edge insight to monitor it. I am not gonna stud mine as I am doing light towing this year. Next year I will be seriously considering studding it as the wife is buying a 30'+ travel trailer and the girls will be getting horses too.

you think you could take a look at the hubs on your ex and see what way you turn them to put it into auto?
