new guy looking for wisdom and guidance

So i have always hated ford, and bought my wife an 06 f250 in feb, knowing of the common 6.0 problems but she wanted it. well long story short i wanted one soon after driving hers. after reading how to fix the issues in the diesels, we now have 2 06 f250 ccsb 4wd 6.0's.

she wants to leave hers factory stock, so all she is getting is oil changes, fumoto, and coolant change/filter, and reg maintenance.

here is the plan for mine for performance and reliability. please let me know if there is anything i should do different or change/add to my list.

maintenance asp:
-coolant change/add filter
-go to synthetic oil, probably valvoline blue
-change fuel filters
-trans flush
-clean egr

then on to mods:
-upgraded fuel pressure spring
-ccv mod
-has 4" magnaflow now, remove muffler
-egt, boost, trans, fuel pres., oil temp, coolant temp gauges
-sct x3 tuned
then save for egr delete, head studs, gaskets, maybe bullet proof oil cooler.

after these, dont know what else i will need/want. thinking maybe upgraded injectors/turbo. what else do i need?
what is rev x and where do i get it?
thanks for helping the noob. i have experience turning wrenches, never on a diesel but i have no doubts about doing the work myself, so that will save in labor costs.

Your plan looks good overall. I'd make the monitoring solution a priority.

You get Rev-X from lots of places. It is a concentrated cleaner that works really well if you have a sticky injector. Of course, once they're clean you shouldn't have any problems with them if you run synthetic oil. 5w40 preferred weight.

RIP Mitch
