Bullet-proofing my 6.4

I am about to purchase a 2008 F350 CC/SB SRW with 59,000 miles on it. Once i buy it i will immediately do some aftermarket work to it. Now i know there are a billion threads, links, discussions about this but i did my research and narrowed it down to what i need now and what i can hold off on.

NOTE: The truck already has a DPF delete, turbo back exhaust and a Spartan Phalanx w/ DashDaq

So here is what I'm going to buy

1) Airdog 150 Fuel Air Separator with the PPE Dual Relay
2) Sinister Diesel EGR delete with intake elbow
3) Sinister Coolant Filter System

I just need some feedback if I'm going in the right direction here before i drop a grand. I was also thinking down the road to do an oil cooler but i think i will hold off a bit. I figured i couldn't go wrong with this setup besides having to remember to change a million filters

Thanks for your help. Ill make sure i write that down. I called a local diesel shop and they told me i should hold off on the Airdog and to replace the head studs instead. And on top of that he told me i definitely need a wastegate with my EGR delete because with a tuner there will be too much back pressure. The wastegate/headstuds sound pricey to me. Anybody have any advice?

Update: After a little research I know i can live without the wastegate for now. I won't be running a very large tune on the truck. Im looking to keep it around for a while so if anyone could let me know what has/hasnt worked for you…etc I would greatly appreciate it

As I'm sure you are aware, these trucks are prone to leaking radiators. If you haven't seen, we offer an all-aluminum radiator, that is a direct-fit into the 6.4! This radiator comes with a lifetime warranty as well, so you won't have to worry about buy another one! This is definitely one way to bullet proof your truck.

Thanks,
Tyler
