If it were me, and knowing what limited info I have learned from here already,,, I would also do a couple other small but yet very helpful down-the-road things once you do get started.
first--- Have you noticed any small oil leaks ? ? is the valley of the motor dry or have diesel/oil in there? ----this will make sense later..
As already mentioned Air In / Air Out very helpful. Good filter as DIY 6637 and a 4inch exhaust will enhance anything else you do down the road.
But if it were me, while setting on top of the motor doing some of the mods mentioned above,,, I would attack some of the inherient leaks your truck either HAS or GONNA HAVE! These friggin trucks have 9742 orings in em' that are going to leak at one time or another! ( not really that many),,,
Fuel drain orings on the bowel and ped o rings come to mind first. I'd also replace the IC boots while up there too. Easy to do if you are addressing things such as Wicked Wheel replacement, oil X-over line, foil delete,etc,.
There's nothing more frustrating to me than to have just finished an install of some gizmo on yer motor and yer all happy and glad it's over,,,, only to find out the next time you pop the hood to Gawk at your new doodads,,, you see a friggin' oil leak right underneath that nice pretty, expensive gizmo you installed last week...... been there too many times like that on my truck already......
