What else when studding?

I have abuddy that is a great diesel mechanic and I recently wired up his shop and he said that if I would buy the parts me and him would put the headstuds in when I want them! What I would like to know is while I am in there what else would be a good upgrade?

I haven't done these upgrades myself but have heard positive things...depending upon how much money you would like to spend and the kind of performance you want, I would say upgrade things like; injectors, turbo, this might be a good time to install propane, nos, water/meth if your trying to go that way....just tryin to help!! good luck

just get the arp studs put in and get the egr deleted and you'll be good to go. then get yourself an sct tuner and you'll have a fun truck...i dont know your power numbers your gonna want but turbo and injectors are always a later option

You dont need the airaid intake. The stock unit is good for 500 hp with a drop in filter. Instead of spending money on the intake get a full egr delete from first coast diesel performance. Adam is agood guy. Its a full egr delte and no tubes will collapse either. All metal. I wish I had studs and egr delete

I already have all the mods I just listed including the intake. I only want Innovative tunes just to try them out. My truck runs great with the Spartan tunes for now. I can't figur out how to display my sig!
