WELCOME TO ORG ! ! !

I'd start with Gauges (Exh Temp, Tranny Temp, Boost)
Straight pipe the stock exhaust or do 4" turbo back exhaust

SCT Tuner with Custom Tunes from Innovative Diesel

I'd also suggest getting Headstuds and EGR Blockoff or Delete for added insurance when funds permit

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

A lot depends on what you're gonna use the truck for.
Usual mods:
Intake
Exhaust
Programmer of choice (You'll a lot of recommendations there)

Optional: (in some cases)
Lift
Wheels/Tires
Sound system
Alarms

That's a few - Others will come on "HELP" a member spend his money too!!!

Good luck with your plans!

You will get many dif opinions for the brands of the exhaust but i think most people will say MBRP turbo back with the cat and muff delete. Isspro Dipricol and autometer make good quality gauges. If you want a lot of power you have to get an extreme tune with the sct.

Hey first off welcome and as for the modes all you can do is read about all the brands that everybody will post and find the ones you like and i would say auto metter the cobalt gauges and (EGT, trans, boost) them at least and as far as the tuner i am reading on the TW and DP right now some people live by TW and others DP so like i said its what you want you truck to look like sound like and how my money you wanting to dump into it. Exhaust MBRP is really good thats whati ran before stacks sounds great and not really that much money but thats what i would say

Oh yeah DIY-injectors look it up and give Jim a call and get bigger injectors

I have an '03 6.0 as well and love it. As far as exhaust goes, get in contact with Guss from Farm boys diesel. He can set you up with a good deal on a straight pipe exhaust. And as far as gauges and programers go, talk to Raul over at Stealth Auto, great guy to deal with. If you do the right mods in the right order, you will love your truck.
