If you have the extra cash the powermax would really like those 175's And you'd still be able to tow your 9k. If your worried about it there are a lot of people towing heavy with 155's

Yes I will be doing a egr delete and all OEM updated parts and all parts that need to be replaced when we take the motor apart. What do you guys think of the oil cooler replace it with the new oem ford version or a bpd oil cooler system?

I would do the convertor, the 6.0L's convertor is definitely not known for having a long life after making power like your going to be making. Let us know if you would like for us to work on a quote for you for the above mentioned parts!

Why are you rebuilding the motor? Excessive mileage? Failed engine?
Why did you get rid of the 2008?
