One of my freinds has a swamps 58v ficm with mild flash(40hp) for over 2 years and it works fine. Personally, I would skip the tune since you are getting a tuner and having arp's done. The tuner can max out the injectors and make any revisions like low end throttle reponse that's what you mostly notice with an ficm tune anyway, other than more heat. the bpd stuff is nice, I had their oil cooler kit and loved it, but they are very proud of what they produce, if you get my drift.
the reg return, if you want it fine, would also be a good time for a fuellab pump and get rid of the stocker if you go this route. I don't see any benefit to a reg return on a tune only truck because there are thousands of tuned trucks on the road that don't have it and never have any trouble. Now if you decided to get big injectors, it couldn't hurt.
And the oil bypass, unless you really want to risk running long oil changes, it is a waste also, they do have way finer filters than the stocker of course, but if you change oil every 5k, it's just a waste of money and a space eater under the hood. Again, thousands of trucks with who knows how many miles and they don't have it.
