Finally ordered the SCT

So I've been telling myself for about a month or so that I was going to order the x3 and I finally did it today. I'm getting the gauge + programmer from Raul (Great customer service, very helpful, thanks sooooo much!) with the xtreme street from Eric. What I want to ask is how long could I wait until I get new head studs and an EGR delete, taking into consideration that I'm not going to be getting on it too hard? All I currently have is a 4" turbo back exhaust...

i would say as long as you keep an eye on your gauges and dont go balls out crazy you will be fine.... and once you do do the studs you can have Eric make you a Studded tune

Thanks again for the support bud... well get these out asap

lt me know if their is anything else i can do for you

You may never need to do head gaskets if you are wise with your truck.
I would just wait and see if it gives you any problems.

Good luck trying to keep your foot out of it.
