top 5 performace mods you would do.....

Lets hear some opinions. I just bought my first diesel. Its under warranty and is not studded. I would like to get some info from everyone. I want to keep the truck at its peak without blowing the gaskets. If there are things to make it run cooler, last longer and get better fuel milage I am going to try it. I am easy on the throttle for the most part, I am not going to be making payments on a truck that is blown up. I currnently have a SCT (erics extreme street) and will be ordering exhaust next month...other thank those, I am in the dark. Thanks.

#1 Sinister Diesel Coolant Filter
#2 CCV Mod to keep oil out of the CAC Boots
#3 EGR Delete -Bulletproof (Most Dealers will do this for you and shouldn't void your warranty)
#4 ScanGauge II
#5 Fumoto Valve on Oil Pan

There's an entire other list once it's out of warranty....

#1 IPR coolant filter
#2 Edge CTS/CS with EGT probe
#3 IPR EGR delete
#4 New OEM Oil Cooler
#5 Head Studs (one for one swap as long as you know your head gaskets are still holding)
#6 MTW Stage 1 Turbo

I know you said 5 but this is what I recommend for your build. This will make your truck into a solid and dependable daily driver that is fun to drive and gets good mileage. I also recommend you give Vivian's Looney Wild tune a try.

Thanks. Sounds good. 5, 6 or 7 aww whos counting. I can understand that its hard to get what I am looking for with 5 options, just that I am going to try to keep it resonable, as I complete two or three of the mods I will ask for some another 5..lol

No question is ever stupid and the reason why you change them!!! It will leave you setting someplace you don't want to be. They are the weak link!!!!

What he is referring to is the High Pressure Oil (or Injection Control Pressure) Stand pipes and Dummy plugs. Our engines' injectors use the oil in the motor as hydraulic fluid that is pumped to around 4000psi via a High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP). He is stating that if you tear into the motor and pull the heads for stud installation, you should also replace the Stand Pipes and Dummy Plugs with updated ones that have urethane washers to help hold the orings in place better and be less prone to being cut and start leaking. A general flow path is that the Low Pressure Oil Pump (LPOP - pump that supplies oil to the bearings and turbo and stuff) feeds oil to the HPOP which then sends the oil to a rail that has two pipes that plug into it that the oil goes through to get to a rail on the heads to send the oil to the injectors. Hope this helps a little bit better.
