FPR clean bb mod and trans gauge

As soon as i get back home i am planning to clean the FPR screen, put the bb on the spring and install a trans temp sender in the pressure port. I was wondering if installing a fuel pressure gauge is necessary, opinions on the bb mod, and what other things have ya'll done that are "cheap" maintenance things i can do that are like these? I am also looking into the oil cross over line, suggested one to get? and opinions on this?

I have the cross over line. I ordered it from stricklys diesel. Not real sure if I did anything but I like the idea of what its supposed to do. I did the fpr screen and mine was completely clogged. I think that smoothed out the idle.

college student budget is tight, do you think the cross over line is worth the 60 bucks

Pass on the crossover line if your on a tight budget. It doeznt really do much. I have the riffraff stainless hard line.

I did the bb mod a long time ago....that was worth it and the fpr clean is a good idea I will be doing that every time I service the fuel bowl now.

On the bb mod, i was going to check the fuel pressure before hand but what psi should the truck run at to be optimal, what are the fitting diameters for the fuel pressure gauge and what are the gauges people are using for this? any particular type of metal bb? I have http://www.amazon.com/80212-Transmission-Temperature-Gauge-Kit/dp/B0002A596I/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1332612819&sr=1-1 trans temp gauge does anyone know the wiring configuration for this?
