What to do?

Guys I got a little tax money coming back to me and I want to do a little something too my 05 f350 with 6L in it. The truck is completely stock right now with 159K on her - runs great just want more power!!! Should I , try and change the exhaust, get a tuner ,which looks like I will get the SCT by the way, or do the EGR delete? Whats the best route to take?

What part of North Kaka-Lak you from? We're not tested for emmissions ...just safety. They will never even look under your hood, let alone your chasis...they will check your ball joints though. I run mine without cat and full flow Turbo Back 4" exhaust Bully-Dog...you might check into Diamond Eye...their price seems right.

Stud it first, then go with MoyockPowerstrokes list.

Stock Torque to yield bolts wont last long once you start boosting the pressure inside the engine - if they havent started to stretch already.

Dont stud first and the engine wont last long. Bolts will stretch (cause that is what they do), head gaskets will fail and its all severly downhill from there.

you can find diamond eye systems on performancetruckproducts.com and they have good prices. i would go with a 5" turbo back system with no muffler or cat. its your call with doing the gaskets and the studs, i have an 05 F-350 and havent done them but i have 82K.

I called the Ford dealer here in town and asked about exhaust systems for the 6 litre! He said it wasnt adivisable to take the cat and muffler off! I asked him why and he said when u do that it causes premature damage too the turbo? It was the first I heard of this, what you guys think?
