slightly puking, have warranty- what to upgrade?!

mods in sig..It only pukes on the wild tune, and when it does it's not enough to see any smoke coming out of the hood or to leave a puddle of coolant. I'm just left with white spots around the degas bottle and cap. I replaced the cap with a new oem ford one, still does it. If i run it on no power, no puking..

Anyway I bought the truck with an extra warranty. I'm taking it to a mechanic my family has been using at a ford dealership for years, and their mod friendly thank god, because i have to much crap that it'd take a week to return to stock, not to mention i threw half the sh!t away..

So- if it needs studs, what else should I do that's not gunna break the bank? I don't want a race truck, but some mods that y'all would do while the cab was off?

1- arp studs
2- 4" downpipe
3- Belts & tensioners (squeeks every few weeks)
4- coolant flush & replace with elc
5- trans flush & new fluid
6- ?
7- ??
8- ???
....
.......
.........

I'm more interested in adding/replacing bulletproofing parts, and or parts that I should replace while the cab is off. I don't want a race truck, but hey if the part is in the budget why the fvck not lol. Anyway, let me hear some opinions form the pro's, I'm still learning here!

Looks like a pretty good list. What do your up pipes look like? I know they can leak over time. That would be a good fix while the cab is off.

From what I have read, going aftermarket on those is the way to go. $300-900 seems to be the price range for the RCD or elite. You can use mod 6.0 up pipes but then I think you have to use a 6.0 manifold. Im sure there are other companies out there making up pipes, just dont know them off the top of my head.

Like blackcloud said look at either the 6.0 manifolds and custom uppipes or a heavy duty set of uppipes that work with the 6.4 manifold. I would also look at a ported intake manifold. The stock ones get nasty from the egr and it also helps with airflow to the rear cylinders.

Well turns out the top above the threads on the degas reservoir doesn't seat level with the coolant cap on, faulty degas reservoir. Hence the coolant spitting out, so head gaskets are ok! No cab off work, just belt tensioners/ pulleys being replaced. And I'm having the coolant flushed and replaced with elc coolant and flushing the tranny fluid & transfer case & rear end.

Yeah definitely, since it was covered I was kind if hoping for studs but kind if not.. It was still about $2000 worth of work- glad it was covered!

Well with a new degas tank and cap it still spits a little coolant but only on the hot tune. Maybe I need a stant cap? My mechanic, who I've known for years, pressure tested the coolant system, checked for blown hg's- all the checking was done. If I run it on No Power it doesnt spit any coolant. It's not enough to even lower the coolant level, just spits a little bit when getting on it on the 300 hot tune
