Anything else?

Ok so I've been reading for the majority of the day on here about egr deletes and head studs and I'm about to go insane with all the information being thrown around.

I know what I want:
1. Sinister EGR Delete Kit
2. APR Head Studs
3. SCT tuner to offset the thrown codes

Now my question is do I NEED anything else before I tackle this project? I'm not really asking what I should ALSO get or should TRY and ADD but is there anything that is absolutely essential? I'm looking to do these things to my truck just to add power and mostly reliability and was hoping you guys could help steer me in the right direction. Like is it a must to do the oil cooler at the same time as the EGR?

Thanks for the help

Holy crap that's a lot of information. And seems way more complicated and difficult (not to mention expensive) than I wanna dive into. IN my head I had the idea that I simply delete the EGR system, add ARP head studs and replace the oil cooler with the possibility of adding OEM gaskets, then throw on a simple flash programmer to turn off the error codes. I didn't think I'd need to add gauges and change oil and fluids to make all this work. Obviously I was expecting a much simpler fix.

what do you guys think about this? I've found a kit that pretty much includes everything I think I need and more. Its from XDP and its going for 1,159 plus an additional 5% off. (Sorry I cant copy the link)

The kit includes:
Full EGR delete kit
ARP Head studs
Black Onyx Head Gaskets
Ford Exhaust Gaskets
Ford Oil cooler with the oil cooler screen
Ford Intake gaskets
All the Turbo hardware

Does this sound about right and how about the price?

If you are going into your 6L and the STC, standpipes and dummy plugs haven't been upgraded then you will definitely want to do those while you are that close to them.

Well now you know the whole story I did not do everything either but I watch my truck very carefully and I have plans to finish everything eventually.

I would definitely not do black onyx... I would stick with Ford OEM. Ford OEM are more expensive but have much better success rate. Don't forget to budget for head work and possibly new heads. Most people don't think about that.
