Recomended parts

Hey Guy want to take this chance to introduce myself. Im happy to say im finally a part of the powerstroke family. I just bought a 03 f-250 crew cab short bed with 155k. it has 4in down pipe straight 4 inch exhaust back from that k&n intake and a edge evolution tuner. next step is arp head studs egr delete new oil cooler stp fittings and blue spring upgrade. I was wondering if there is anything eles you guys would recommend? thanks guys

I'd ditch the edge tuner and get a sct

Def get an SCT tuner as said above. And an EDGE CTS is a good investment for monitoring things and trouble shooting when having problems
