Question Sinister complete solutions kit?

OK im looking at doing the egr delete on my 06 f350. I have been reading that while im doing so it would be a good idea to go ahead and switch out the oil cooler. I also want to do ARP head studs. Well in searching for prices on doing these things i ran across this... .Complete 6.0 Ford Powerstroke Solution with Sinister EGR Delete Kit, Oil Cooler and ARP Headstuds it seems to be everything i want to do to make my engine sturdier in one big bundle minus the coolant filter,sct tuner,and gauges. Which are already on the way just wanted to get some input from you guys if this would be a good start at least for limiting future issues and having a overall stronger motor. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks for all your help it is much appreciated

thats certainly one option to go, however there are things that you should do while youre in there that arent included, like the stand pipes and dummy plugs in the heads, injector o rings etc

I would call MKM and see if you can get the master solution kit, i dont think these kits come with the stand pipes and dummy plugs though

MKM Complete Master Solution Kit for 6.0L Powerstroke (Sinister EGR Delete, ARP Studs, Gaskets, Oil Cooler)

I think you could do better for the $$$$.

Alot of those parts are available as kits straight from Ford. For instance the turbo install kit. That comes with everything they mention.
Call Tousley Ford @ 800-328-9552. They can price these out for you. Have the last 8 numbers of your VIN ready.
Parts list: (ask them if there are kits available that would combine parts, instead of buying separately)

Intake gaskets (which I believe are 9.00 or so each)
oil cooler ($213.84)
oil cooler screen ($6.78)
exhaust manifold gasket set (????)
turbo hardware/o-ring kit
Valve Cover Gaskets
Valve Cover Grommets
Valve Stem Seals
Injector O-Ring Gasket Kit
Air Pump Gaskets
Air Sensor Gaskets
Cylinder Head Plugs
Fuel Filter Gasket
Fuel Filter O-Rings
Fuel Pressure Regulator (get the new kit that raises the fuel pressure to 70psi, part # 3C3Z-9T517-AG)
Oil Pump Cover Gaskets
Oil Pump Inlet Gaskets
Oil Pump O-Rings

Then buy your ARP's separate (I found them for $398 HERE)
A decent quality EGR delete kit ($150 and found on e-bay of all places)
Then find your head gaskets of choice. Stockers are not a bad choice given the cost and do NOT have a bad rep when used with studs. They fail because of the TTY headbolts used and not because they are a bad gasket. The black onyx/victor reinz are not a necessity until your well over 500 horses.

Thank for the heads up NYC, I'll look into pricing else where through ford. I figure if I am gonna do head gaskets i might as well do the black onyx while they are under there. The other route that i am considering is the full bulletproof kit. They say that there oil cooler and EGR delete are guaranteed to last! I really want to knock out some of these kinks in the 6.0 motor before i do any thing else. One more thing..... Does anyone know of a trust worthy Diesel mechanic in the Houston area? As always thank you guys for all your help!!!!!!!

Don't forget to send the heads to a machine shop to check for cracks, and warpage.
