If you do the studs you will also want to do a full EGR delete. You should also do a regulated return and if you have the heads off think about the head coolant lines to help keep the heads cool. (only $150) I got mine from Elite

I see in your signature that you jave an Edge tuner. You need to chunk that and get a customed tuned SCT.

If your looking at an aftermarket turbo(and depending on size be default looking for a/m injectors) you'll need something that has custom tuning abilities otherwise your truck will drive like crap. Edge won't cut it.

I don't care if you get the ATS Aurora 3000 turbo(which is a smaller turbo then our stock one), you will still need custom tuning.
