need some friendly advice on possible upgrades
hey guys, needing a little advice on some of the upgrades i am planning on doing to my truck, 2005 F250 6.0 FX4, whether it is worth it to do them or if i should just save the money and trade it in. i'm currently deployed but when i get back and am planning of doing the following upgrades:
ARP headstuds/factory headgaskets, PRICE apx $450
BPD or Sinister EGR delete kit, PRICE $320-$350
Sinister Coolant filter kit, PRICE apx $150
Sinister external oil filter kit, PRICE apx $390
aside from those i am planning on doing an exhaust, intake, SCT tuner, leveling kit, and wheels and tires, but those might have to wait for awhile to save some money for now, i also found out i might have to replace 4 or more of the injectors which will be close to $1000. so total im looking at around $3000 for parts, my only lucky break is that my buddy that works at the dealership said he can probably get everything installed covered under my warranty, if that falls through im going to be spending a lot more than $3000...
But if that all works out i shouldnt have a problem doing the upgrades but if i have to spend too much more than the $3000 on the parts i might have to end up selling or trading my truck in for something else. just wanting to know what yall think and if it would be worth it to do those upgrades or if i would be better off trading the truck in, and what do yall think is the proper price cutoff that i should take into account? any friendly advice would greatly be appriciated.
