Think I'm ready for Tunes and Stage 1's?

MBRP 4"turbo back, DIY intake, FRx, new glow plugs, flushed/changed every fluid and filter in truck I bought (2001 F350 CC, 145k miles). Anything else you guys recommend before installing injectors and Beans 6 position? I've read up on how to do the injectors, feel pretty confident. Should I go ahead and order new cups? Any other suggestions?

The cups wouldn't hurt to do at least.
I would at least do a hard line HPx, if not a bigger HPOP.
Gauges for sure.

Sounds pretty solid. I'm about where you are, I just need to order in my gauges and install them before I do my chip. I'm doing an EBPV clean this week.
