SCT installed today- WOW! Whats next?

Man, gotta hand it to Eric. Just downloaded my tunes tonight and took it for a spin. Truck really comes alive with the tunes! Ill stop there, because anybody who runs the Xtreme street knows what I mean......


I just got my fuel pressure regulator kit in this week (yet to be installed).
I have to pick up my 6.4 banjo bolts this week.
I have 4 gallons of Zerex EC-1 coolant in the garage (with two quarts of flush, and 16 gallons of distilled).
I installed my bull bar and back rack on saturday.
Fuel pressure gauge adapter and gauge ordered on friday.
I have 4 gallons of Rotella synthetic, and 2 bottles of Rev-X in my tool box.
My 2.5" leveling kit should be here this week (probably wont install this until the spring when I buy bigger wheels/tires).


What should I do next?

I keep reading an intake is useless. Should I upgrade the filter at least?
48V FICM from Swamps? I tow quite a bit, wouldnt want the 58V.
Clean my turbo? Upgrade the turbo?


Any ideas?

The stock intake is good to 500HP leave it stock
When you go to install the adapter in the test port hit the high spots on a bench grinder so you can screw it in because it is to close it will hit the housing
Use centane boost in the fuel and everyother week when it warms up drive it like you stole it to keep the EGR valve clean and the turbo vains working but do not go over 28 lbs of boost and don't idle it to long.
