6.0 mods need help

Okay guys I jus got out of a bad relationship (with a dodge) and got me an 06 F250, that needs some pep....lol I am about to call innovative diesel and talk to them about ordering some parts and tunes, but wanted everyones opinion before I buy something that has gotten bad reviews...lol
-4'' MBRP SS exhaust (turbo back) I like the new black exhaust but the fact that its only got a 1 yr warranty on it is kinda telling me not to do it.. I really like RBP better, but they are hella expensive and the reviews on here say that MBRP is better....
- Spearco intercooler with tubes
- S&B Intake
- Sct X3 seems to be a favorite programmer here ( I am taking it Innovative tunes by eric or cales at BTS are both great)
- CFM Largemouth intake w/3 ports drilled and tapped (anyone know a big difference between the largemouth and the smallmouth?)
- Motor already has studs so I have that covered and think I am going to use FCDP Egr delete kit ....
If you can think of anything else that I might need to help or anything I am wasting my money on please hit me up and let me know... also if you know of any place that I should also compare to innovative.... Thanks guys

I just ordered 4" dual MBRP, SCT X3 with tunes and and insight monitor. I think that was the only thing you were missing were guages. Anyhow, my order just arrived and I hope to put it on next week.

Sounds like your on the right track. Don't forget some gauges to keep an on the engine vitals. Also if you want a little extra, look at Trusted perfomance and their stage 1 fuel system.

Spearco actually uses better materials then the Banks, the only thing that Banks has going for it is the thickness of it.

looks like your on the right track... only thing i would add is that you dont necessarily need the intercooler.... also the CFM intake elbow is nice but not sure if its worth the money...

hope that helps... if you need a package price on the whole thing i can set you up with a good deal that will save you some money
