You don't mention the year, but assume that it's one with a possible faulty STC fitting. The only other thing would be the addition of the updated fuel pressure spring, and depending on your ECT temps, a new thermostat or at minimum new thermostat oring for when you flush.

Sorry updated my sig but didn't go through I guess, its a 05, not sure which year they went to the new style so I figured I would just get the kit. My coolant has been running about 176 all the time and oil at 190, last summer I I had some 240+ oil temps towing, so im changing it to be safe. Thermostat is on my list of things to get

if your coolant is only running 176 I think you probably need a new thermostat. Just as well do it while your in there.

also theres a large o-ring that goes under the intake to the front cover, replace that also
