Arrow New guy needing a little help?

I just purchased a left over 08 6.4 crew cab swb XLT F250. It has a Fabtec 6inch radius arm systems with 37 inch tires. I removed the factory nerfbars and installed the power steps. I just ordered a Spartan with 3 settings + 275 nutty tune, deletes, and S&B intake. So here is my questions?

Should I order the upgraded trans solenoid?
What tunes should I get besides the 275hp tune?
Whats next?

Thanks

I will have some pics of the truck up as soon as I can wash it. Its been over 100 for the last couple weeks and I hate washing black trucks in that heat.

08 6.4 CC SWB 4x4 6'' Fabtech, 37 nittos, Spartan, S&B intake,Deletes, 4'' MBRP Exhaust w/o muffler. More to come!

I have the 75, 150, and 210 tunes other than my 275 tune. I think the solenoid would be good to do since the truck is stil stock, it will save the clutch discs a pretty good amount. Next is either fuel, a tranny, or nitrous....

You could do them, they are a good safety part if the EGR cooler were to bust. They serve no performance gain and increase drive pressure. Spartan tuning closes the EGR valve. I would wait and get a full EGR delete an wastegate setup.

It's hard to say. Different dyno's have shown different numbers. Some people see right around 500 horsepower, and others have seen 520-540 horsepower.
