Finally coming in to play

Ok Folks I finally got hired on at the FD,which I love doing, and now im able to start adding on to my truck which is an 06 F-250 6.0L 2WD. So some of the things I want to start out on is the Following

New Exhaust System 4" or 5" not really sure on the different besides sound which is important to me. Adding in a Early 03 Turbo also.

Cold Intake system, which i've been looking at S&B and a Few others,and getting the Edge CTS system,but Im not sure on the other things like ,Studding,egr delete, etc...

I was hoping some of the pros on here could help me out on what all I would need to look into doing, performance and sound of course is important to me,and also this truck is my daily driver.

Wait to buy any other goodies until you have the Insight CTS hooked up. You may find yourself spending your new paycheck on parts needed to correct any issues you find with the CTS.

Then if you need to take the motor apart for any issues, you can install the EGR delete.

If the CTS shows a healthy motor, then go for the goodies.

Will just depends on your taste and budget (and eyesight). I have the CS because i didn't want some big screen on my dash. I prefer the smaller profile of the CS and installed it in a color matched pillar mount with no exposed wires. The CTS will allow you to hook up a back-up camera that you cant with the CS and also displays larger PIDS and has a touch screen. I have no regrets about buying my CS

EGR delete is a relatively easy thing to do if you have some time wrenching on things and have tools. You could get it done by yourself in under 2 hours.

Lets see, off the top of my head I would drain your coolant until your degas bottle is empty plus a little more (roughly 2 gallons), both batteries, alternator, and turbo. You might be able to get away with leaving the turbo connected, but I'm not 100% sure on that one. Passenger side wheel and the wheel well liner. Last thing would be the up-pipe from the passenger side so you can replace it with the straight pipe.
