what else to do?

i know the weak points to 6.0's are headgaskets and egr. i've already got arp's and next on the list is blocking off my egr completely. my question is what else should catch my concern? i've already had a new bedplate put in. My plan is to purchase one BIG thing every summer for my six ohh. i only drive it on weekends and want someday for it to be at the track for serious numbers So i am trying to catch any internal problems early with arps and egr block so my question i guess is now where should i start if i buy my items in intervals: should i start with a tranny, then go fuel system, injectors, turbo? any advice would be great.

That sounds like a good plan, tranny first, then add the power.

still waiting on high power tune didnt have the heads done when i got the tranny or sct, running innovative street. The old tranny went out at 90,000, paid the same amout for the ats as ford wanted for a rebuilt unit with a 75,000 mile warranty, ats gives a 150,000.
