what to do first

I have been plan on doing something to my truck soon but cant decide what to do. My truck has 4" straight pipe, coolant filter, afe cai, and a edge juice w attitude. I want to make around 500hp when im done with it. So here is what i want to do. I want to do the studs, ford updated parts, egr delete, remote oil cooler, 175/30 or 175/75 injectors, mtw hybrid or stage 2, and a livewire ts. I cant afford to have it all done at once. So what would you guys recomend first. studs, upgraded parts, egr delete and a new oem oil cooler (for now untill i can afford a bulletproof diesel remote oil cooler) or injectors and what ever upgraded parts that can be installed while putting in the injectors and the egr delete and oil cooler. The reason i ask is because i have bad stiction problems and my degas bottle doesnt puke at all. So what would you guys do? And by the way im going to have trucks unlimited do the work.

You may want to get rid of that Edge Juice with Attitude before anything else or you may be adding a transmission to your list. Shift on the fly tunes for these trucks are not good.

After getting rid of that I would do all of the bulletproofing, then do your performance mods.

Yeah ive heard that alot to get rid of the edge. I was planning on getting the livewire ts at the same time i have the work done. I was leaning more towards the bulletproofing first. I just use the edge as a monitor. and a built tranny is in the plans for later but thats going to be awhile before that happens. Thanks bud

Yeah, they are notorious for causing transmission issues.

We carry a lot of the stuff you are looking for and can get you setup with tunes too.

Shoot me a PM or e-mail in you are interested. I will be glad to help you out with any other questions you may have also.
