2000 F250 7.3

I just bought a 2000 F250 with the 7.3 motor with 178k on it. I was reading through here and there is a ton of valuable information on here. It ran well but seemed to be a little bit low on power to me and I could barely hear the turbo. After reading through I disconnected the EBPV it ran a little better. Then I checked the wastegate and banged on it and the plunger snapped shut. It was stuck partially open. I plugged the red line until I can clean it and make sure there are no leaks. Needless to say it runs like a totally different truck now. I have changed the oil, oil filter, and fuel filter so far. Tonight the 6637 is going on it. I will clean out the EBP sensor and tube as soon as I can. I was wondering if there is anything else that I may have missed that is important to check that I should do. Thanks.
