Wish me luck!

I just ordered the "complete solution kit" from MKM for my 06 6.0. It should be in friday and my uncle and I are going to tear into her and make this thing "BULLETPROOF". Oh btw we are going to be attempting a cab on job so hopefully it works out well. Any suggestions? I'm having the heads checked and machined, Definitely staying away from the Gold Crap, deleting the egr and changing the oil cooler. Am i forgetting anything?? Afterwards i'll be pulling the Banks 6 gun off and installing a SCT touchscreen xtreme with Erics custom tunes!!

Do a coolant flush with Restore and Restore plus, prior to your tear down. This will remove the silicate residue and iron deposits that are still in the system that may cause issues later.

Doing head gaskets with the cab on is cruel and unusual punishment.

Thanks for the coolant filter idea! I just ordered the one from dieselsite. I've read a lot about the stc fitting, what is it and should i change it out while im in there?
