Help with Performance Upgrades for the 6.0
I am new to the Powerstroke world and recently pulled the trigger on a 05 F250 FX4 4x4 cclb.
Some background on the truck, It has 100k and looks like it has had a very easy life.. Oasis report was good and the only owner it had was religious about regular maintenance.. So, today I placed some big orders and wanted to get your feedback on weak points or things I should do while installing all the new gear.
Here's the list: New FICM, Oil cooler, Intake gaskets, Turbo gaskets and bolts, EGR delete by XDP, Coolant filtration kit by XDP, Ford OEM "Blue Spring" fuel upgrade, S&B Cold Air Intake, MBRP 4'' turbo back straight exhaust, and SCT Livewire TS with custom tunes from Eric at Innovative diesel. I plan on flushing cooling system before I change oil cooler, and am changing oil, oil filter, and fuel filters..
I know the head bolts are something that will need addressed in the future, but for now they are not an issue, and I plan on this truck being a daily driver, not pulling more that our 17' duck boat.
Is there anything I am missing??? I think that this is a good start but was unsure if there's anything else I should do while doing all this work this weekend. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! All parts were ordered today so I am excited to get it on the truck! Thanks!
