To start with the stock air intake on the 6.0 is about as good as they come good to 500HP and the best preogrammer to get is the SCT X3 from Matt at Gearhead or Innonation Diesel have them write the tunes you want the best way to go and it should clear the code, but i would get a good set of gauges something like the Edge Insight CTS to check temp spread on ECT-EOT max 15* a coolant filter to remove the casting sand and a fuel pressure gauge because under 45lbs at WOT may kill injectors, this is a start.

IMO, gauges/monitor should be the first thing to do. You'll need a way to monitor the motor to look for any issues the truck may have (EOT-ECT delta, fuel psi,weak FICM, ect) before you spend all your money on performance parts. Make the truck reliable first, the '05s have there own set of issues that need to be addressed (STC fitting, dummy plugs, ect).

Yes-About the only gauge you will have to get is a fuel pressure gauge the CTS will do fuel pressure now but the cost of doing it is high. I have the Autometer elc. 0-100 on a column mount with the hose adapter works great.
This is what i got for the fuel pressure gauge, it goes into the test port, this is a cool set up gets the sender away from the heat and viberation of the motor.

You should start with a monitor of some kind to make sure your engine is healthy and you can keep an eye on things.

Make sure you are keeping up on maintenance as well. A good 5W-40 synthetic motor oil, Mobil 1, Delo, Rotella and OEM oil filters only. All other fluids as well.

You can go with an SCT Livewire for monitoring first and then add tuning to the truck later, custom tunes are best. I would start with an exhaust upgrade first however before tuning, 4" or 5". And a coolant filter is a good investment IMHO.

Others will chime in and have more.

Just bought an 05 f250 as well and had the egr valve cease open and give the cars behind me a smoke screen. Had it cleaned out to buy time but also noticing a bit of oil leaking from who knows where. I plan on egr delete and oil cooler, oil bypass filter and coolant filter and exhaust in that order. Should I rearrange these plans even with the egr already becoming problematic? I would rather get the tuner and gauges later after I make the known issues extinct...

I would do the tuner first it will shut off the valve and code

you could even tack the valve shut

gauges (monitor) second this will let you see what else you may want to do when doing the delete



then focus on your EGR delete


based on this and your other post thats what I would do to avoid doing the manifold removal twice or just figure an oil cooler and flush when doing the EGR if you are set on getting a monitor later


the AFE and exhaust are not necessary you won't e gain anything but decibels IMO
