-Buy some gauges I recommend the Edge insight cs or cst. This only monitors vital information (FICM, ECT, EOT, etc).
When you have gauges, check to see what your deltas are between ECT and EOT. If the temp differs 15 or more you have a plugged oil cooler.
Now regardless of the oil cooler, it would be good to flush the system with some cleaning product and to flush while the oil cooler is out. Always fill up with elc rated coolant, Ford coolant causes issues.
-Lots of good companies make egr deletes. I went with the Sinister Egr delete.
-With a 5" you will need a down pipe I believe.
-Airdog II is a good system, I want one for myself ha. I would suggest some smaller mods such as "6.4 banjo bolts" and "blue spring mod" Helps increase fuel pressure and flow.
Now with the sct you can buy a couple different versions. Personally the X3 is my choice. It comes with 3 preloaded tunes. Also it has room for 3 custom tunes. Quick tricks, Innovative diesel performance, Gearhead are some good names in tuning.
I just went over everything brief, search button will help with most of your questions. There are also stickies located in General 6.0 discussion.
