Help with performance on 6.0

Guys need some help. I have a 2004 f250 fx4. When I bought the truck I noticed it has some kind of delete plate on egr not sure if it is a true delete or a basic delete if there is such. This is what I have done afe stage 2 intake, 4inch turbo back exhaust muffler delete, sct xcal2 with Erics street, extreme street, and extreme race. What now? Really just want to do some upgrades to make my set up safe and reliable gauges, fuel supply, etc please give me some advice on what to do now thanks

Just a suggestion, seeing that you are running extreme tunes. I would make sure the EGR cooler is gone and not the valve just removed and capped off. This is a major failure point on these trucks when you start adding power/heat to these motors. Gauges are a great suggestion, EGT to be specific along with fuel pressure. Head studs are a good idea if you have the money to do them, I don't have them yet so I am running a stock stud friendly tune in addtion to a light foot, every now and then.

Well, I have the SCT with the touch screen and I don't use it. I use gauges to monitor Fuel pressure, boost only because it is fun, and EGT. I wasted money on my tuner. A lot of people on here will trash talk glow shift gauges, they are all I have ever used and have never had an issue. not to mention they are half the price of auto meter. You will need to drill and tap your drivers side exhaust mainifold for the pyrometer so you can read EGT's. I did mine with the truck runnign so no shavings would get into the turbo, the blow out the whole into your face this way. Scary as hell under a four ton rumbimg beast! Fuel pump, I went with AirDog only because I have plans for injectors down the road. You can use the spring mod and it will work just fine, a number of people on here have done it with great success. You can search for that thread and find about a hundred of them. I did the banjos before I did the AirDog, apparently you don't need them if you have a regulated return. Go to Tousleyford.com and do a search in the parts dept for the banjo bolts. they sell a kit specifically for the 6.0 upgrade. they are cheap and easy to install, they come with the 6.4l bolts and copper orings. Hope I helped out.
