No you shouldn't have to change anything to install a tuner.The head stud issue I'm not sure if that prob. with the factory head bolts streching was fixed. It more than likely has been,they did come out with a new torq spec for the 6.0 when they had to go in for repair.But for a definate answer I'll let a tech handle that one.
But I would definatly get a set of gages for your 07.

You already have a boost gauge for your turbo so you should get an Exhaust gas temp gauge so you know what the temps are pre turbo so you dont melt your turbo down. If you add a tuner your egts will be warmer because the tuner will add more fuel.

All depends on what you think is diff. The best way is to put the temp probe in you driver side exaust man.I took the man. off drilled and tapped it Some people said you can do it leaving it on the truck but then you have to worry about shavings getting in the turbo. if you take it off you can clean it ou pretty well.Its not that diff. really

Well its not that difficult I will find a write up for you to give you an idea. You have different choices out there you can go with the analog gauges like I did or you can go digital. From what I understand the digitals aren't as accurate as the analogs. I will find you a write up be back shortley

I forgot .you have to make sure you don't tap it to deep because you don't want the probe to touch the inside of the man. that will give you a fause reading.the instuctions will tell you how deep to tap it

This write up is for the triple pod that goes on your piller. It has a Trans temp EGT temp and Boost. You could get away with a double pod because you already have a boost gauge.3-Gauge Install Pictures
