Truck Surgery

My truck is all apart since the headgaskets blew 2 weeks ago. It's under warranty. However, I'm still paying $1200 in upgraded ford parts/labor and $900 in performance parts The ford parts are little things that the mechanic told me ford has made changes too. Since its apart, the labor is 1/8 of the cost. I added ARP studs, Victor Gaskets, 6.4 banjos, egr delete, ELC coolant and new Ford FPR which ups the psi from 50 to 65. Anything else I should do while its apart? I can't afford injectors at this point and I have a Powermax on order, hopefully.

I forgot to ask, what upgraded Ford parts you putting on? The 6.4 Banjo's & FPR setup should only cost about $80.
