What will it take to run 12's? 2005 6.0

Hi all, this is my first post but i've been lurking for awhile on this site. Anyways here's the deal..

I have a 2005 f-250 4-door 4x4 Long bed, all stock suspension, tire, and mod wise aside from an egr delete. I plan on doing a 4 inch mbrp turbo back and sct tuner from innovative, but what else would you guys say it would take to get my truck to a 12.99 or around that mark? Also what other mods might I need to do (if any) to keep anything from breaking at that power level. I know head studs are recommended but I'm probably gonna press my luck for awhile as I don't have the 3k plus for that just yet. also Truck is around 115k miles. Thank in advance for any and all help.

How do these transmissions hold up? Would I need any preventative modding to keep from having problems in that area? Also would I need bigger injectors for the nitrous or no? I see most people going with a dry kit on here.

Dry kit is about the only way to go.

The trans will eventually need attention but they hold up to 500rwhp for quite a while as long as you arent beating on it constantly

Ok, I hate to keep asking questions but what Tranny mods exactly should I be looking at should I choose to reinforce it for piece of mind?
