Putting together a parts list... Need some guidance

So I'm putting together a parts list for the truck. The truck has about 150,000 miles on it. I'm not looking to build a drag truck, but I want more performance and reliability out of the truck (will be used mainly for hauling my quad around and some light towing). I'm going to get some work done on it while I'm gone and I need some help on narrowing down my choices.

Injectors
Are there any aftermarket ones out there that are more reliable than the stock ones? I'm looking to step up the size as well...

Torque Converter
Once again looking for more reliability along with a better performing truck. I hear that Suncoast is great, but ATS is also local to me. What would you guys suggest? I don't think this would be a bad idea with the added power...

Intercooler
My choice for this is the ATS intercooler unless anyone knows a better suggestion.

Other things on the list are ARP head studs, replace or delete the EGR cooler, new oil cooler, coolant filter, Powermax turbo (haven't decided whether or not I want to do this one), revised turbo drain tube, SCT X3 (planning on ordering this from Vivian with some custom tunes) and the edge insight w/ thermocouple. I plan on keeping the stock intake as well. What do you guys think?

Elite diesel "High Efficiency Injectors" or "155cc injectors".

Torque Converter

I am not sure a new TQ converter is needed. Custom tunes will go a long way for both trans and engine.

Intercooler
My choice for this is the ATS intercooler unless anyone knows a better suggestion.
Not sure this is needed either

Ford F250 w/ 6.0L Powerstroke Intercooler, 2003-2007, by Mishimoto

Other things on the list are ARP head studs, replace or delete (Spend the money to buy a delete kit, or weld a plug in the up-pipe, remove the cooler, re-route the coolant, unplug the egr valve. That will do the same as a delete kit but $300 cheaper.) the EGR cooler, new oil cooler, coolant filter, Powermax turbo (haven't decided whether or not I want to do this one), Get the pawermax once your stock turbo goes bad and cleaning it will not save it. Since you do not NEED the powermax, just wait.revised turbo drain tube, SCT X3 (planning on ordering this from Vivian with some custom tunes) and the edge insight w/ thermocouple. I plan on keeping the stock intake as well. good idea on keeping the stock intake.What do you guys think?

Home - Diesel Filters,Additives,brake rotors, and brake pads for Chevy, Dodge and Ford Diesel Trucks is a good cheap place to get racor/motorcraft filters.

Also look into full force diesel for the injectors. I would recommend 155cc.

TC is not really needed I would spend that money on a powermax turbo

IC is not needed ether. The part in our intake system that is the most restricted is the intake. Upgrading the intercooler would only give you slightly less IAT

Thanks for the advice smokersteve and 06powerstroke06. I've been digging up some older threads and I think that the injectors and the turbo might be a bit too much for what I'm trying to accomplish right now. Without those things I don't see the need for the upgraded torque converter and intercooler. We can scratch those off the list.

I forgot to mention that the truck will most likely be going to Elite Diesel for the work. The truck is in Colorado right now.

Just wait untill you injectors go bad, then upgrade. That is what going to do.

I have NUC motorsports parts BUT, I got the oil filter mount on ebay for $20 and the oil filter cap from NUC's web site for $60. Fittings and hoses from local shops, about $20-30. + shipping it totaled around $120-130.

Welcome To NUC Motorsports manufacture of oil bypass filtration kits for Ford, Chevy, and Dodge, Ford 6.0 billet aluminum oil and fuel filter caps and more...
