Help with mods!

I was going to sell my truck and get another Subaru STi but I decided I have the looks done on the truck I'll just keep it and give it some power.
With that said...

I'm planning on getting APRs, egr delete, and new oil cooler soon. If I get the heads checked out and they are fine is there any point in getting new/better heads?
I also wanted to do big turbo, injector, and airdog. I'm not quite sure what supporting mods go along with it or exactly which turbo and what size injectors to get. I would like to make 650+ hp reliably without spray, maybe a little more as long as I'm not messing with internals.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Oh and a tranny fits in there somewhere!

I would start off with an exhaust, a set of gauges (either digital or analog) and a tuner first.....

then you can always add turbo, sticks and fuel later.

Also, depending on what size injectors your going with, you might have to upgrade the hpop too.

I have exhaust superchip and intake. Waiting for studs for SCT know two people who's studs went after they got SCT, and my super chip walks on extreme street. As for gauges didn't even think to mention them, never driven an n/a vehicle always had gauges.
I'm not a complete noob just don't know exactly what to get for a 6.0 give me a Subaru and I can tell you anything.

Well you need a way to monitor the basics. Transmission temp, exhaust temp, boost, and because you have a 6.0 you need to monitor coolant and engine oil temp as well. I use an edge cts to monitor all these and more, I really like it as an all in one gauge set up.

I know exactly what gauges I need. All I need to know is what turbo, injectors, ect, I should go with and supporting mods for those, to make the power I want reliably.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to have any attitude. Maybe it is how I write out what I'm trying to say. I'll read over what I say before I post it to avoid that. Been out of it lately from work.

It's cool!! Like i said,maybe its just me. Being that your a new member, they were just trying to start you off with the basics (gotta walk, before you run).

I'm sure one of the HP/TQ junkies will chime in with there advise. All's I know is, it's gonna take a big bankroll to hit that 650hp.

By the sound of it, right now you have a completely stock truck. You might want to fill out you signature in User Control Panel (UserCP) so these guys know what there dealing with.

Compounds or procharger. Only way to go over 650 hp and still have a truck you will enjoy.
