600 Bucks to spend...Any Ideas?

Hey guys...Its looking like I'l have 600 bucks to put into my truck....

I allready have the intake and exhaust done. I was thinking about a programer, but I would kind of like to take care of the regular issues first. I saw a thread yesterday where a guy got an EGR delete for about 150 bucks, so I'm definitely going to do that, which leaves me about 450 bucks...

If you guys were the ones spending the money...What would be the most bang for the buck?

I WILL be getting an SCT with custom tunes eventually....But I was thinking I should fix some of the basics first....As soon as I sell my old house and get settled into my new one I should be in good shape to get the head studs done, and maybe even fire ringed heads (which is a whole other question if fire ringed actually helps)...

I'm pretty much not going to stop upgrading the truck until it flat out chews up every cummins it meets....

But I want to do it in a controlled way, so I'm upgrading in stages rather than by emergency when I break stuff...lol

Gauges to monitor the motor!!! Can't stress this enough!!!! Whether it be analog gauges or the Edge CS/ CTS. If your gonna tackle any issues with the truck, I'd suggest Autoenginuity software also.

Don't fire ring the heads. They can only take so many heat cycles so they aren't good for a DD. Oem gaskets work just fine anyway.

A coolant filter, oil change and about 4 tanks of diesel. That would just about spend all of that.

I would def reccomend gauges. I was pretty nervous driving around with my sct and custom tunes not knowing what my egt's were.

I would like to do my egr delete, but I am apprehensive about removing the up pipe.
