Upgrade Ideas for '07 6.0

Hey guys, new to the forum and i'm looking for some upgrades for my truck. its a 2007 F250 CC LB and currently has an AFE stage 2 air intake, C2 gauges (trans, pyro and boost) and a Banks 6 gun

I've got some tax refund money coming back and i would like to put it to some good use. Here is what i was thinking i would spend the money on;

Ditch the 6 gun in favor for the SCT X3 (which i should of bought in the first place), 5" MBRP turn down turbo back exhaust, CFM + air intake elbow and the Air Dog 2 fuel system

In anyone's opinion is there something else i should be spending the money on? Will this combination of parts work well together? Do i need the Air Dog and or the CFM + with these modifications or is there something that is more maintenance oriented that i should focus on before these parts are required?

Any input you guys have is much appreciated, Thanks.

The livewire TS does your tuning and monitoring in one unit and is pretty sweet. You can get tunes from any SCT tuner as well. I would have gone this route but it was not out in 2011 when I bought my truck and got all my goodies.

Good luck!

thanks, that's a good idea for a packaged unit as far as monitoring and tuning go. is the Air Dog and the CFM + systems good compliments to this set up or are they unnecessary at this point?

Or an edge insight CTS along with your SCT to load tunes. Dont mess w CFM not worth it. And at the moment I doubt you wanna mess with an airdog either. Better off getting something like coolant filter and coolant flush done.

I would pass on the CFM - if I was going to do it, although I think they are a tad overpriced I would do the no limit fabrication setup.

I wouldnt run an ADII setup - too many failures for my liking unless you run it like PGreenSVT is doing and using that at low psi to feed a fuelab pump. I would look to fuelab or A1000 for your fueling needs, which I dont think you have any right now.

Start with the monitor/tuner and go from there.

Monitor being the #1 most important mod on these trucks.
