DIY Mods

Hi all,
I am new to the forum but I wanted to get some advice from you all. I have a 96 F-250 with 57,000 actual miles on it. Yes you read that right 57,000 miles and I have put all of them on there. Needless to say it does not get driven a lot but I use it to pull my 35' JayFlight camper during the summer for vacations and it is used on the farm.
I recently upgraded the engine by installing a Banks Power Pack system, new down pipe, intercooler, turbo housing, chip, and transcommand module. I am now wanting to do some of the DIY mods like the engine brake, the 10k mod and shimming the fuel regulator. Do you all know if any of these mods will interfere or hurt the Banks parts that are already installed?

Thanks for your help...

I wouldn't do the 10k mod since you are already running a chip. The other things you mentioned won't hurt anything. However... that Banks chip may be leaving a bit on the table. Custom tunes from somewhere like Total Diesel Performance or DP Tuner will give you more and better power. Good luck, welcome to the forum, and post pics of that low mileage rig!
