Are these necessary mods?

Thinking about ordering the following parts and wanted to get opions on necessity and if anyone noticed a difference with any of them.

FRX(RR)
HPX (RR)
CCV relocate kit (RR)
Intake Plenums (RR)
Intercooler Boots (RR)
Intake manifold (AFE)
Overboost Annihilator (RR)

already have 4" turbo back, egt\boost\pyro gauges, airaid intake.

Thanks,

All those things are nice mods to have, but I would get a tymar or other intake instead of the air raid ASAP. Air raid/banks/k and n, and a lot of others use 2 ply filters that sacrifice filtration for flow and are known to dust turbos. Do a search for suggested intakes and see what you like. Also, when you buy your stuff make sure you use a site sponsor!

FRX(RR) might help quiet motor, helps keep air from passing through the injectors because of the dead head fuel rail

HPX (RR) kind of the same as frx but for oil

CCV relocate kit (RR) helps keep boots cleaner and helps prolong the life of the boots

Intake Plenums (RR) not necessary unless you are having issues with stock

Intercooler Boots (RR) if your boots are bad or worn out

Intake manifold (AFE) no benefits imo. Spend money on something more important

Overboost Annihilator (RR) not needed, good tunes will eliminate the need

already have 4" turbo back, egt\boost\pyro gauges, airaid intake.

Thanks,
What are your goals? Do you have a chip? As mentioned, might be nice to have some of these but not needed.

I would honestly spend money elsewhere. Frx and hpx would be the ones on this list I would buy depending on overall goals.

What he said, but I will defend the Airaid filter kit. I've had one for over 12yrs and over 230,000 miles with out a issue of dusting, in fact they (airaid) replaced the filter "free" because they have a 1 million mile warrenty.

6637's are cheap and very effective. No sure why anyone would use anything else.

Are any mods on a 7.3 really that NECESSARY? IMHO no, literally millions of them (between the PSD and the T444E) ran full service lives w/o the need for any mods at all.

Now non of those mods are going to hurt at all. I would can the intake manifold, the cost vs. benefit isn't there IMHO. I would add a hutch mod to that list while your at it.

Unless you route the ccv into a catch can, and re-plum, back into the air intake, you'll be disappointed. The smell it puts off, especially at idle/stoplight..etc, is just plain awful.

Had mine opened to atmosphere, and it lasted about a week, and went back to stock.

Just curious. Do you or will you periodically "clean" the intake system to keep oil from settling in the boots? I was thinking about doing this mod but have talked myself out of it. I do have oil visible on the passenger side plenum, could that oil be traveling from the CCV or could it be the seal around the bottom of the plenum. Both plenums area oily/dirty along with their boots. I am going to put on a new set of boots in the near future and maybe a set of plenums.
