Upgraded fuel pressure regulator spring kit from ford.-bought, not installed
4" BDS lift-ordered
17x9 vtec raptors matte black-ordered
35x12.50r17 nitto trail grappler m/t-ordered
5% tint on back and 26% up front-done
change oil to full synthetic on tc, tranny, both axles, and engine oil

SCT-haven't decided on who's tunes. Advice?
EGR delete with coolant filter and all gaskets that go with it. Best delete to get?
Garrett Powermax with upgraded intercooler boots.
AFE intake manifold elbow.
AFE pro guard stage 2 intake. Any better intakes?
Edge insight ct with egt probe.
Glowshift 100psi fuel pressure gauge.
Upgraded fuel pressure regulator spring kit from ford.
2.5" leveling kit
AND limo tint all the way around so no one can see my goodies
for tuning i recommend elite or innovative. they are both great tuners. elites egr delete is good and has a pretty decent price. there is really no point in putting on a powermax because the stock charger is plenty for stock injectors. i would run a regulated return too. they are great.

I just want to do a powermax now to prepare for injectors in the future. Not looking to make a race truck, but want to get in the ballpark of 500hp. what do you think a cclb would run on the 1/4 with 500hp? also, what's the regulated return for?

should be somewhere around high 12s or low 13s. regulated return gives better fuel flow. check them out.

Forget the AFE elbow and air filter. Your stock air box flows enough for your 500 hp and filters better than anything else on the market.

I have an Airaid and by 6k miles I have to change oil because of the lower filtering of the Araid. It flows more air but at the cost of filtering.

Forget the regulated return and just do a crossover. With the Powermax and injectors you are goin to need an Airdog or FASS system. The Airdog II already has a pressure regulator built in to it.

Diesel site or FCDP have nice coolant filters.

Ok, so I'll stick with stock and do zoodad mod. But, what filter should I get for my stocker? And, when should I worry about changing headstuds and HG's from a horsepower standpoint?

Hoping to save up and do injectors, studs, and HG's at the same time.

replace with a stock element, no brainer...

if the gaskets are fine dont replace them right away, and do them with studs when the time comes, dont fix what isnt broken.. yet..

I would however add a rebuilt oil cooler to the list.
