Im 18 just bought a 6.0 and have some questions.

Hi, i first want to introduce myself, im 18 and live in Arizona, had my first diesel when i was 16, it was 2003 F350 7.3 Crew Cab shortbed lariat.
I went to a Jaguar thinking that driving a lexury car would be nicer, could live without a diesel so i went ahead and bought this 2004 F350 6.0, now back to the topic, i wasnt familiar with the 6.0 so i went ahead and got some "stupid" mods for it starting with an Edge programmer and propane injectiom system without having it studded, so yes the truck is now in the shop and its getting the following done;
ARP Headstuds
Victor Reinz Head gaskets
SCT X3 with custom tunes from innovative
2003 10 vane turbo
and a few other stuff
Now my question is what other stuff should i do to it now that it is in the shop with the engine out? I would appreciate all comments and want to get familiar since ive seen you guys are very helpfull and have some great trucks, thanks

you might already have this but exhaust to help keep egt's down. but since im guessing you want to hear the 03 turbo you prolly already have straight pipe.

oh and im 18 too but i had an expedition when i was 16 and for sure cant afford a jaguar.

Most guys on here rebuild the Oil Cooler while they are in there. It has to be pulled off the truck to do everything your having done anyways.
