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.

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.
