I got my EGR delete from MKM customs (a site sponsor), I also purchased a coolant filtration kit from them. I would recommend you flush your cooling system and use a Cat EC-1 rated ELC (extended life coolant), then get the filter kit from them. With the EGR delete kit of any type you will need a SCT or an Edge Evolution tuned by PHP, to get rid of the cel. An egr delete is a must with a 6.0 or a bulletproof egr cooler.
As for your question about head gaskets going after egr delete, it just happened to me. Either stud it now or save some $$$ to do them later.
As for gauges you I say get an Edge Insight or Edge Evolution/PHP Gryphon tuner that displays all the pid's the Insight does. Either way gauges are a must especially if you are towing.
Also if you are towing a bigger sway bar is a must but most importantly the suspension mods suggested my caryt are the most beneficial for your Ex if you do any towing in the mountains. You will get about a 2.5"-3" lift but a superior riding Ex.
I am getting a Powermax turbo for mine to help the mountain towing. I also would recommend a Swamps 58 volt FICM when yours does take a crap.
Just keep asking questions, lots of us have been there and can help you.
