Need Some Input On My EX

Looking for some input Guys. I want to do a few things to the 01 EX to add a little power and some looks. So I would like your thoughts and input.

First Tunes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
who's would you go with I don't want a lot Just a litte help but don't want to kick a rod out. Also Rolling coal in not something I want to do so a clean or as clean as possable.

Second Gages Or Monitoring System
I'm thinking CTS I like the one in my 6.7 plus I can move it to the next truck. I know I need to buy an EGT Probe.

Thrid Exhuast
I Know on the OBS It makes night and day differance to chang the down pipe I don't think it matters as much on the SD.

Fourth Mirrors
I broke my pass side one. So I just need to repplace it. But I'm thinking I might just up grade to 08 and newer.

Fifth Head Lights
Mine are foggy and can't see much with them. Should I just get replacement ones or 05 - 07???

I would like your thoughts. Thanks JJ

my php tunes run clean and have great power.

autometer or isspro gauges.

partsgeek.com has some good prices on 08 mirrors or replacement mirrors.

4 inch exhaust is a good mod. bigger downpipe and getting rid of the stock muffler helps.
got my diamond eye for 260 at alligator performance

05 headlights are sweet, or just get 03 model headlights with clear lenses.

dont know if you mentioned intake, but 6637 , ais, afe, s & b are all good.

Love my PHP tunes. Burn very clean and have great power as well. And at just under $300 for the chip and tunes for the Phoenix i think this is the best bang for your buck you will see anywhere right now. They also have the Hydra which is very popular and also a great unit. Allows up to 17 positions and can also run other companies tunes on the chip to compare the differences.

Thanks I'm thinking the PHP is where I'm going to go. I just need a low level one like DD, Towing.
