Question Wanting to BEEF UP my 05!!

What would be the best package with or without doing the entire bulletproof?
I am wondering if I can beef it up a little bit without doing all of that or if it just needs to be done. Chip, Exhaust, Air intake.....Any help would be great!!!

Thank you!!!

Exhaust and intake are completely different from solving the EGR and oil cooler issues.
Coolant filter would be the least amount to do.

Egr delete and a new oil cooler. Coolant filter. Sct programmer. 4" turbo back exhaust; no cat or muffler.

Also, leave the stock air intake in there. It filters the best of anything out there and unless you plan on going over 500rwhp (turbo, injectors, so on and so on) the stock setup will flow just fine.

No reason to replace your Oil Cooler until you've plugged it up flushing the system.

And no reason to replace it until you're ready to change to ELC.

Capture as much crap as you can via a filter while you monitor the deltas.

You might need it now, or a year or so.

This is HUGE!

Get a good monitoring solution (Edge CS/CTS is a popular one) and keep an eye on the coolant temp and oil temp, if they start getting big differences in the numbers (IIRC 6-8* at 65mph flat ground, empty truck) if that delta starts changing, get ready to flush the coolant system and replace the oil cooler. Do your flush before changing coolers!
