Suggestions for 300k miles 05

Recently picked up another Ford F250 Lariat 05 CCSB and the truck has 290k mile already on it. This week I'm going to be putting in a EGR delete, 6.4 Banjos, Blue fuel spring and STC fitting (sometimes is hard to start hot). What else does anyone recommend to this truck while i have this turbo out? The trans shifts fine and was recently rebuilt and I have to assume the studs and gaskets have been done since the hood has coolant stains haha. Truck runs at about 188-190* coolant temps and oil runs right under that by 10*. EGR currently is dry and the truck runs great besides some long start ups when hot. Exhaust was probably next on my list.

2005 F250 CCSB Lariat 6.0 4x4 ARP studs, Edge Juice Platinum, 6.4 Banjo bolts, Blue Fuel spring,

If it is hard to start when hot, then I recommend updated stand pipes and dummy plugs. Of course this is provided that you are cranking for more than 5 seconds. JMO.

Oil should never be cooler than the coolant temps

Remove the intake manifold and clean it out. I soaked mine in purple power for 4 days and that did the job.

I'd look to see if you actually do have studs. I've looked at several trucks that have coolant stains and still have the "good ol" head bolts.

2005 F-250 Lariat FX4 CC SB
Sinister EGR Delete
Diamond Eye 5" Turbo Back Straight
OEM Gaskets and ARP Studs...
SCT X3 (Quick-Tricks tuning)
S&B Intake
Edge CTS
Full Syn 15w-40
High idle mod
PMM Coolant Filter
Rebuilt FICM with Atlas 40

2006 F-350 XL RC/Flat Bed
EGR Delete
SCT SF3 (stays on tow agg)
FARM TRUCK


Diesel spark plugs are the bestest spark plugs....

Yes oil will take longer to warm up than the coolant. Mine lags as well until warm but once everything is warmed up, my oil temp is higher than my coolant temp.
