What comes next?

I have an 08 reg cab purchased from single owner with 144k miles, completely stock in near new shape.

So far I have full EGR delete, AFE 5" turboback with muffler, AFE stage II intake, and am currently running spartan 210 tune. I want to run the 250 but am scared of the studs as I don't know their limits.

What should be the next step? FASS, injectors, or what about all the inter cooler piping? Or what else?

This is my fun truck but also use it to tow 11k lbs occasionally. I want reliability for another 100,000 out of it. My mechanic said not to worry about studs until the HG fails, so for now that's what I'll do.

for what its worth, I have an 08 Job 1 (the ****ty ones) with a S&B intake on it, and still running stock exhaust pipe/muffler/tips (minus the DPF/CAT of course) and I have been running the 300HP for well over a year now with no issues. Mind you, I'm not hard on it until I need to be... So don't be so scared. I have a 11K/37ft 5th wheel I pull with it, but I do go down to the 210 because the accelerator is too touchy and I get alot of bucking.

I think I'm gonna go with CAC pipe, intake elbow and coolant filtration system.

Is Sinister's CAC pipe high quality? They have each of the above so I could just place one order.

Who makes a hot side pipe?

Thanks.
I found an article in diesel power that recommends my setup, plus studs, and then the tow torque turbos from elite diesel, for 650 hp. It doesn't mention any of the piping or fuel mods. Is that safe?

Stock fuel will do 700. 72mm atmo will get you more than you would want I think.
