If you have 186,000 stock miles the upgrade I want is your secret! That's great - why mess with what's working? A coolant filter is the first I recommend but you are obviously doing something right with your own maintenance schedule.

The very first thing you should do is buy something like the Edge Insight so you know what your engine is doing. The links in my sig will explain a lot.

Here are my suggestions:

Coolant filter kit
Gauges ( either digital or analog)
Bypass Oil kit
TB exhaust
Custom tuned SCT x3 with innovative tunes

if you have a lil more cash i would do ARP headstuds and EGR delete as well

Gauges (individual, not Edge)
Coolant Filter
SCT from Innovative!!!!!!!
4" Turbo back exhaust

Once you start with those, you'll learn enough to pick the rest on your own.

My preference. Just don't trust anything stock, like the gauge signals the Edge will be reading.

If I knew the secret I would tell you. I just bought this truck two weeks ago from a dealer and as far as I can tell it hasn't had anything done to it. The last guy that had it just put a bunch of highway miles on it.
