Help choosing next upgrade

Well my head gaskets blown so i need to fix.
Going to do the arp head studs and want to do more since cab is coming off.
I have a spartan tuner intake and 4 inch exhaust.
I have about $ 10,000 to spend and minus the $4000 to do head gasket
What should i do while cab is off.
My truck is a daily driver and i tow everyone once in a while.

depends on the mileage of your truck.

exhaust manifolds, uppipes, turbos, airdog and valvetrain.

I would save a little dough for an all aluminum radiator in the future.

If the mileage was higher I would consider replacing fuel pump but not sure at 100k miles.

Was your oil temp in good range?

A ported intake manifold is fairly "cheap" these days $400-600. Better flow especially to the rear cylinders.

What tune were you running with the Spartan that caused the head gasket failure?

Me personally I did ported intake manifold, 6.0 manifolds and up pipes, 71mm lp turbo, both idlers and belt tensioners and all new rocker arms and pushrods. Also as stated save money for an all aluminum radiator. Eventually it will leak.
