Getting Studded and Deleted

Biting the bullet and getting studded next week. Also having the oil cooler replaced while they're at it. They're going to install my Sinister EGR delete that's sitting in my garage, too. Might have them put on my Firestone airbags if it doesn't cost too much.
Anything else y'all recommend to have done while they have the motor apart that doesn't cost a lot of dinero?

Better safe than sorry, have the heads sent out to be magnafluxed for cracks, checked for flatness, and pressure tested.

Don't let them put the junk gold Ford coolant back in. Get a good ELC coolant.

Your gonna have to call around local, prices vary. I don't have my invoice papers in front of me right now, but I had mine checked they milled of .006" and put in hardened valve seats for around $400. Make sure the shop is familiar with the 6.0 heads, if they gotta mill some off due to warpage, I think the most is .008".

Not sure on the exact day. The shop said call them on Monday (said they are working all weekend to clear out some back logged work) and they'll be able to tell me what day.

your truck looks beautiful by the way! Im dying to get studs done too, cant decide if i want to do it myself or pay.. how much is it costing you in labor? I would pay in a heartbeat, but ive just had a bad record of customer service, ie...i doubt they would do it right.... if i do it myself at least i know it will be done right, but i am not looking forward to it.
