Looking at 6.0PSD with a blown engine, mods?

I'm looking at buying this truck, 2004 F350, 6.0, blown engine, I have a low mileage replacement engine line up & was planning to do:

Head Studs
EGR Delete
Turbo back 4" with cat delete
SCT Tuner
Air filter/intake

Any recommendations on suppliers, brands better than others, etc?

I really like the Elite diesel kit with the flex up-pipe, but their studs are pricey, was going to ARP.

In all honesty, I'm not looking to go crazy powerwise on this truck, I want reliability & want to improve the fuel mileage. I drive like an old man.

Keep the stock intake and you should be good. What exactly do you mean by blown engine? If it blew the headgaskets you could potentially save some money just getting the heads checked and using the oe motor

I'm buying it sight unseen (except digital photos) with known engine issues, it has 130K miles on it and it's been sitting for close to a year. I have access to a 50K mile motor for a good price ($2750). I also have access to a hoist.

So my plan was to get the replacement motor, stud it, EGR delete it & get it ready to put in.

Pull the cab, swap the engines & call it a weekend.

why do you like the elite kit with the flex in the up pipe? I am sure you probably don't know this being new to the 6.0, but that pipe will crack in the flex section in 1 year or less.

I can get you some prices for you parts list if you would like. We sell stud and head gasket combo's, full EGR delete kits, exhaust systems, custom tuned SCT's and more.

The only thing I have against your set up is that the return freight will kill me budget wise because of the bulk & the fact I'm in Canada. I do see it as a better solution though.
