Get rid of the EGR before you tune it.

Studs woulldn't hurt either

I'd do gauges at the same time, but not a necessity, just be smart about driving it. Studs would be nice, but again, not a necessity. You will eventually need them though as driving with TTY bolts is more than likely going to blow the stock head gaskets eventually.

Gauges, EGR delete, and studs would be what I would do... a tuner is a must have but those three things should go hand in hand with a tuner.... let me know if I can be of any assitance

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned
