ITP's Fuel Regulated Return Kit, considering also how high your rpm range is going to be after this might want to consider a fluidampner as well, I know it helped me.

Man your truck is gonna be sweet. Find a way to make a good intake manifold and heads that will flow equally and that should be a good easy mod.J/K. I would hit Trusted up for the fuel system, they are making some sweet stuff.

Well I have the ATS Stage 3 fuel system and a regulated return. I am not going with the dampner since the block will be balanced. I am so twisted when it comes to the turbo selection......VGT vs. NON VGT vs. Size.... I know if I go with a non vgt it will probably be a 64mm from TRUSTED or RCD.....If I go VGT it will be the Auroa VGT 4000 or the Elite SS.......I just have to consider spool up and longevity.....maybe the non vgt will be the ticket..... O yeah I do have the egr delete........ I may do a crank case vent system from BD and an Amsoil by pass filter system..... Other than that what else can you all think of.....

Depending on if your hauling heavy or not, with 200 plus mm^3 injectors(or even if it's just 200mm^3 injectors, I think you'll need something bigger then the 64mm to use all that fuel. Might want to think of a 66mm, might still be able to haul with it if you get the tuning right. I still have quite a lot of smoke with my hotter tunes with the 64mm from RCD and I only have the 150mm^3 injectors, can't imagine what 200 on up mm^3 injectors would spew out.
