From everything I read a set of ARP head studs should be step number uno. Then, budget permitting.........intake, tuner, DPF and EGR delete. I plan on ordering all of this today.

Well judging by your sig, I'd say next you're gonna want to do studs and while you're in there full EGR removal, waste gate, and for the priceid upgrade rods rockers. All the small yet PITA stuff for reliability and cost.

New head gaskets, ARP head studs, and an EGR cooler delete. Then start focusing on the transmission. Rebuild kit and torque converter.

Yeah, I guess I should have read his signature before recommending mods he already had!
