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.

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.

h&s minimaxx, 5" flo pro, 4" down pipe, no limit cold air intake, dirty diesel EGR delete with intake elbow, 6.0 exhaust manifolds, custom up pipes, ported intake manifold, Apex 71mm LP turbo, Rudy's cold side pipe, diesel site coolant and transmission filter, diesel site intercooler boots, ccv mod, bilstein shocks, gogo dd solenoid, HID lights, Airdog II 165, PMF traction bars, PMF drag link, moshimoto aluminum radiator
