Where to Start
I've spent most of my time on this site figuring out how to make my truck reliable.
In addition to the regular maintenance - only motorcraft filters, archoil 9100 fuel additive in every tank, coolant filter (with Rotella ELC), bypass oil filter - I have done the following:
blue spring, STC fitting, upgraded turbo feed tube, standpipes & dummy plugs, recently cleaned my boots and did a CCV reroute, new oil cooler and egr cooler, monitoring the essentials (including fuel pressure and EGT) with the Edge CTS, tuned with Vivian's Looney for over a year now..All looks good, delta is in the 6-8 range cruising at 60.
Anyhow, I have about 115k on my '06 CC, and I'm turning to this forum once again to see if I can get some recommendations for power.
Where do I start? Is it worth waiting on performance upgrades until I take care of studs and headgaskets (probably the #1 performance upgrade)?
